Founded by honest settlers after a peace treaty with the local Native Americans was signed, Daisy Town has eventually become a haven of lawlessness, with Sheriffs being tarred and feathered rather routinely. But then notorious do-gooder Lucky Luke (Terence Hill) rides into town on his trusted horse Jolly Jumper (voiced by Roger Miller), cleans the town of all troublemakers, gunslingers, drunkards and the like ... and eventually, Daisy Town has become a place so boring that it starts to hit the town's economy.

Enter the Daltons (Ron Carey, Dominic Barto, Bo Greigh, Fritz Sperberg), Luke's arch enemies whom he throws into jail routinely - but who have just been released legally, so without them committing a crime, Luke can't book them - much to his dismay. The Daltons try to bring up the locals against Luke, but at first with little success - so they move over to the neighbouring Indian tribe and want to bring them up against the settlers of Daisy Town ... and somehow they succeed - but when they lead the Indian attack, they make fools out of themselves while Luke talks over peace with Chief Prairie Dog (Dave Thomas), and they're quick to agree - and the cavalry arrives only much too late for anything. The only thing left to do now is return the Daltons to prison ...

Nancy Morgan plays Lucky Luke's love interest, but has little to do with the actual plot.

 

Lucky Luke is one of France's most popular comic series that was created by Morris back in 1946 and is still released to this day, with its direction having changed little from its initial conception of both hommage and parody of the western genre. So it was inevitable that after quite a few animated films and TV series it would be adapted as a live action movie as well. And even though he looks nothing like the Lucky Luke of the comics, the choice of Terence Hill for the lead doesn't seem like too far-fetched a choice, as he was one of the biggest stars of the comical strain of spaghetti westerns, which were heavily influenced by the Lucky Luke comics to begin with.

Unfortunately though, Lucky Luke the movie came out a mess: As a director, Terence Hill just couldn't translate the humour of the comicbook to the sceen, as an actor, he's rather wooden and brings a melancholy to the role that's nowhere hinted at in the comics, and he changed around the iconic looks of the comicbooks too much as to really click with the audience expecting a little more accuracy. But the biggest sins of the film are it isn't nearly tense enough for good western entertainment, and shies away from any good setpieces and especially an exciting finale, and it's just not very funny, with only the actors of the Daltons bringing any actual humour to the proceedings.
