Summary

Matt Kirby and Wilbur Walsh have the same problem: they are hungry, they have no job and no money. After they tried unsuccessfully to get a job in the harbour independently of each other, the two buddies join forces to attack a shop. However, it turns out to be a police station. Not to get caught, they spontaneously apply for a job as a cop. This is how they end up in police training and suddenly find themselves on the good side of the law. With their unorthodox methods of investigation, the two finally find a drug ring, which is then attacked with powerful arguments.

Crime Busters was something like the first comeback of the duo Spencer/Hill in 1977. Between the film and its predecessor Two Missionaries lay three years. Luckily, the longest break of the duo's career until 1985 was over.

Crime Busters is the first movie in the Spencer/Hill universe to be shot in Miami (to the location report). Miami turned out to be a good place to be, and should soon become something like the duo's second home. Afterwards, nine more films and the 12-part Bud Spencer series Extralarge were produced there.

But it wasn't shot exclusively in Miami. The final brawl took place in a bowling hall in Milan.

David Huddleston, who died in August 2016, has his first appearance here alongside Bud Spencer and Terence Hill. He plays the superior of the duo Captain McBride in an unforgettable way. Five years later, he made a similarly great appearance as CIA chief Tiger in Go for it.

With Ezio Marano and Luciano Rossi, both accomplices from the gang of Bambino from They call me Trinity are present here again. This time they're playing villains. Marano plays the leader of the gang in the pub, Rossi draws attention to himself as Geronimo.

In the role of Suzy Lee is Laura Gemser, who had achieved a certain fame in the years before 1977 through various roles in Softpornos (Black Emanuelle, et al.).

For the first time since the great success of the two Trinity films, E. B. Clucher directed Crime Busters.

The soundtrack of the film is written by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis. In the year of release the title song was released as a single on vinyl. Unfortunately there is no complete album.

In the scene at the snack bar, where Bud and Terence plan to rob the supermarket, you can hear the two songs Angels und Beans (title song from Even Angels eat Beans) and Why is everyone so mad (title song from Charleston).
