The 3 supermen (a series I used to like as a boy, though I managed to catch only two movies in the theatre near my home) travel through time and end up in "Kansas, 1867", i.e. Almeria. They are stolen the time machine from Navajo Joe's gang (NJ played by P. Sanchez). After some adventures they are back to base.
I didn't laugh if only in one occasion during the bank heist, when there is some Trinity like action. The barroom brawl is too long and unfunny. The gags are not effective because of both players and director. Wonder whether I would have liked it at 10. Wonder if nowadays  boys at 10 would like it.

I wouldn't mind seeing some of these but the italian discs have not subs nor an english track. This series must have been popular in HK because the Shaw Brothers produced a series of their own called THE THREE SUPERMEN OF ASIA and I believe Carlo Ponti had a hand in these as well.

As far as this is concerned, you can have a dab at it as most of the action is visual and the dialogues are not indispensable to understand where the plot is going.
