Steiner steals the show.
17 March 2010 | by CranstonmanSee all my reviews

The last film in the Von Buttiglione cycle remains the best known of the series due to the considerable presence of John Steiner as the evil Colonel Schwein.

Its a mixed bag of bad taste jokes and the usual buffoonery, that does not always hit the target, but when it succeeds it is very funny and the film retains a quaint 70's charm.

Dufilho is as usual his most irritating self, so its left to Steiner to completely steal the show as the mad Nazi colonel. From his enigmatic entrance to eating a young chick straight out of the egg, to hobbling about on crutches after accidentally severing his own leg, its a barnstorming piece of camp that the great man is obviously wallowing in.

We won't see cinema like this again, so its worth appreciating no matter where a print comes from.
