Alternately boring and entertaining
3 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

American secret agent 3S3 is assigned to "blackmail, torture, maybe even marry" the daughter of the head of an international crime organization in order to locate his present whereabouts. His mission ultimately takes him to Lebanon, where most of the action is set. This is one of those spy films that could only have been made in the 1960s (and I mean that as a compliment). I appreciated its "feel" in general and its Oriental-flavored music score in particular, but I was also bored sometimes by its slow pace. George Ardisson actually looks a bit like Sean Connery from certain angles, and is pretty good with the karate chops, but the fight scenes are often clumsily staged and poorly edited. Barbara Simon is pretty but rather bland, while Seyna Seyn is a way cool, but also way underused villainess. ** out of 4.
