All that was missing was Bud...
17 August 2013 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"Triggerman" seems like a trip back in time, back to when Terrence Hill had his peeking days with Bud Spencer. This spaghetti western have all the elements of that, and it actually works out nicely enough.

The story in "Triggerman" is about a small town by the name of Holy Sands, where a woman has a dream to build a hospital. Doc West (played by Terrence Hill) is in for the plan, and the town puts together a poker tournament which draws in gamblers of all sorts from all over. By winning the tournament, Doc West will be able to have enough money to help build the hospital, but of course not all gamblers are of a pure heart and plays with a straight hand.

Storywise, then it is essentially something right out of the good old Terrence Hill movies. So for fans of him, then this movie should hit the spot.

The acting in the movie was quite alright, and they had some good actors and actresses on the cast list. I was just a little baffled about how much in appearance the sheriff (played by Paul Sorvino) was to Bud Spencer. A coincidence or on purpose? Well, regardless, it was fun to watch.

There isn't all that much comedy in "Triggerman", and as such, this movie does deviate somewhat from the older Terrence Hill movies. Whether or not you like that, well that is individual of course. I, however, did enjoy it and was thoroughly entertained by "Triggerman".

"Triggerman" is a fun movie to watch, good entertainment, generic and predictable story - yes - but fun nonetheless.
