The Fight Before Christmas aka Troublemakers The film deals about the famous brothers , Trinity and Bambino , both of whom are two likable bounty-hunters – Terence Hill and Bud Spencer – who hate each other . Their mother attempts to reunite them for the celebration of Christmas .
The film is based on a notorious poem , ¨ night before the Christmas ¨ , whose title was exhibited in many countries and is developed on an heart warming story . As always , they will confront enemies by means of continuous struggles without blood , neither gore , nor brutal murders . The fights are with no violence and predominates comedy and parody , the choreographic quarrels are lights and clean . The humor is continuous , laughters are based on physical differences and diverse personalities of the protagonists . Terence Hill plays as a sympathetic and rogue gunslinger with beautiful eyes and fast weapon . Bud Spencer as a corpulent, bouncing and grumpy man but with good heart , helping children and poor people and of course his weakness eating beans . Their silly characters have a certain resemblance to Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy . Storyline is a little bit ridiculous but has its enjoyable moments here and there . The picture was realized twenty some years later of ¨ Trinity ¨ and ¨ Trinity is still my name ¨ by E. B. Clucher that obtained much success , however this recent version was a flop because of Trinity and Bambino time had passed . Supposed to be the third part but due copyright problems it couldn’t be and is converted in an unofficial sequel. The film provided a nostalgic and familiar reunion of the agreeable pair and is only for their hardcore fans . Atmospheric and lively musical score by the Italian musician Pino Donaggio. The motion picture is regularly directed by Terence Hill who also directed and interpreted ¨ Lucky Luke ¨ in similar approaching to this one.
