Super Fuzz (Somerville House)


Picture: C     Sound: C     Extras: C-     Film: C-



Not to be confused with Super Cops (CD reviewed elsewhere on this site), Sergio Corbucci’s Super Fuzz (1980, aka Super Snooper) tries to be a funny comedy about a police officer (Terence Hill) with superpowers and an unseen female chorus singing the title when he goes into action ala the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman.  Even with Ernest Borgnine, who did so many Italian and Spanish productions at this point, this is not even campy enough to be funny.


Can Rookie Dave Speed (Hill) save Miami?  At the time of the cocaine explosion not portrayed in this film, who knows, but he could not save the lack of script from the very bad curio.  Whether in English or any other language, this is bad and the kind of thing that killed the counterculture.  This one is only for the ultra curious and culturally curious.


The 1.78 X 1 image is soft, second generation and lacks detail, though even the secondary color suggests how good this might have looked in 35mm.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono is harsh and a few generations down, but listenable.  Extras include text on the cast, stills, trailers for other Hill films and “other classic moments” which aren’t.
