Trivia

A paradise for those who cater for Egyptian antiquities: a long scene inside the Cairo Museum (since then, much altered), showing in detail the monumental statue of Amenhotep III and Queen Tiye, and several minor statues, one of them close enough to identify a stylized engraving of the Mother Goddess Hathor. Plus a walk around the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx of Giza, with plenty of camels for rent, as the 21st century will never see them again. See more »

especially frivolous, and day-glo coloured euro-spy effort
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

The bravura euro-crime director, and part-time cannibal fetishist Umberto Lenzi takes a strident foray into the heady, glamorous, if not a little silly, cinematic imaginarium of the 60's euro-spy actioner; and, to be fair, he certainly gives it his best shot. While it isn't quite up there with Lenzi's uber-kult offering 'Kriminal', the film certainly makes for an adequate time-waster, and would be much appreciated by those individuals who enjoy this especially frivolous, and day-glo coloured genre. '008-Operation Exterminate' is a fun ride, and makes a rather lissome, highball quaffing companion to Jess Franco's 'Lucky The Inscrutable'.
