I'll keep this short if I had to use two words to describe Agent 505: Death Trap Beirut it would be instantly forgettable. Nothing really stands out the plot is a jumbled mess, the villain's motives are uninspired, the hero is rather bland, a lack of "good" gadgets, and a female lead that, while perky, brings little else to the film. But the main problem is that it's just not as much fun as other 60s Eurospy efforts like the Joe Walker or Dick Malloy movies. I realize that this is an awfully broad generalization, but I usually find West German films of this era lacking in the "fun" department.
The highlight of the movie for me has to be the shots of swinging Beirut in the 60s. What an incredible looking city it was!
