Review: Bambino (Bud Spencer) is walking alone through the desert carrying his saddle when he spots a party of outlaws up ahead. As he approaches, he draws his pistol and the men react warily. But Bambino was simply fooling and reveals he has no bullets, so the men relax and give him ammunition when he asks for it - which is a mistake, because he loads his gun and starts threatening them. The men throw away their gunbelts, hand over the beans they've been cooking and one of them goes over to the horses to tie Bambino's saddle to it while he feasts. A brief burst of action sees the outlaw grab the rifle from the saddle, but then he finds it's not loaded either, so their thief ends up not only devouring their food, but taking their horses as well. The day couldn't get any worse for them, well, until Bambino's brother Trinity (Terence Hill) approaches, pistol drawn...

The first Trinity movie was such an international hit, especially in Germany where Hill and Spencer were massive stars, that a sequel was swiftly concocted under the original title of ...Continuavano a Chiamarlo Trinità. The action was much the same, and most of the appeal of this duo's works could be put down to their familiarity and their eagerness to embrace the clichés of the Western genre, unironically and with affection. As with the first film, it was written and directed by Enzo Barboni (under the name E.B. Clucher), and features not so much a plot as a collection of traditional incidents that every Western fan can tick off on their fingers...

...barroom brawls, lightning fast gunplay, holdup scenes, and all that within the first hour, not to mention completely family friendly so there's no blood or unnecessary nudity here. Once Trinity has relieved the four outlaws of whatever Bambino (don't call him that) left them behind, and left them in a punch up between each other into the bargain, he returns home and we see a few scenes with the brothers - if they really are brothers, and they don't look much like each other it has to be said - and their parents, with mother played by Jessica Dublin and father by cowboy stalwart Harry Carey Jr. What follows is possibly the worst displays of table manners you're ever likely to see.

A storyline does emerge after a while, and it's mainly to do with Trinity and Bambino posing as lawmen to get their hands on as much cash as they can. After a holdup ends with our anti-heroes fixing their victims' cart and giving them money instead of the other way around, we can see they actually have hearts of gold, and besides, Trinity is enamoured of the old couple's daughter. This family becomes a running joke, but when the duo reach town they get embroiled with a scandal, taking bribes from the corrupt town leaders and eventually helping a monastery keep their valuables from being stolen in a climactic fight - nobody is shot, it's all slapstick violence. There are some funny moments, such as Spencer's line about the alcoholic baby or the wine bottle opening, but in the main this is easy, undemanding viewing, and the fans would have it no other way. Music by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis.
