Storyline

Colonel Mostyn is the chief of a section of the British Security Services when they are embarrassed by the number of spies and defections. The Chief tells him to do something about it so he hires Boys Oaks as Agent L - The Liquidator, to assassinate people about to cause trouble. Although Boys likes the cars and the girls that his new position attracts he's not any good at it. He's also got a phobia about flying that makes jetting off to exotic places a bit of an embarrassment. Written by Steve Crook <steve@brainstorm.co.uk>

Trivia

This was the first big spy movie of the 1960s to cast an Australian as its lead secret agent. The movie actually predates the James Bond movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) starring Australian George Lazenby by about four years. See more »

Goofs

When Boysie and Iris leave the Colonel's empty office she turns off the lights, but as we see them exit from the other side the room is not dark. See more »

Quotes

Colonel Mostyn: If I may propose a toast to 'L'. 'L' is your official identification.
'Boysie' Oakes: 'L'. Does that stand for anything in particular?
Colonel Mostyn: 'L', I omited to tell you, stands for 'Liquidator'. Your a 'special' Special Agent. Your job is to kill for us.

Wasted talents
12 December 2001 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

I just saw "The liquidator". I think it is one of Rod´s worst pictures.

There is a funny and promising beginning but after ten or fifteen minutes it only is boring. Rod is fun to watch but his character is badly developed.

The rest of the movie is very weak. That is a pity because there are talented actors in it, a capable director and a nice basic idea.
