Beretta's Island (1992)

How bad is it? It makes you long for the thespic talents of Lou Ferrigno.
Should you see it? No - not that you'd find it, anyway.

Franco Columbu was one of the top bodybuilders circa 1980, despite his short stature. Here he tries to make a film career as an action hero and make a tribute to his home of Sardinia; he succeeds only in the latter. The first minutes of the film is just him and buddy Arnold Schwarzenegger lifting weights. Franco then becomes a sort of Interpol agent fighting drug crime in Italy, while managing time to show the sights in his home town. The only entertainment value of the film is seeing how many different excuses there are for the hero to remove his shirt.
