The man with the 1000
24 August 2001 | by (Klafu) – See all my reviews

This German/Italian spinoff of the 60ie's James Bond-wave shows another trial to find another smart agent as Connery performed it. Paul Hubschmid does his job as "Super Seven" quite smartly, a bit too smart sometimes, but as an secret agent man quite acceptable. In the movies from that time you'll never miss the masks made of some "special" or "secret" material, and you'll find them here as well - we encounter only 5 or 6 of them although the title promises a 1000 masks. The trick of changing someones identity is done ...hm... as usual (Mission Impossible-like). The problem was the quite typical face and profile of Hubschmid, which makes the identity changes a bit implausible (like Jean Marais as Fantomas, where all Marais-parts look quite the same).

Apart, there are some other things you never miss at that time: first, a song - here with some childish lyrics and catastrophal dubbing; second, a villain who works for an asiatic enimy; third, some explosions in the final showdown; fourth, some fist fighting; fifth, some well known or exotic cities; sixth: Karin Dor. This movie is quite consumable (apart of some "atomic center" scenes which indeed were shot in some engineering hall). The part I most enjoyed was the chase in the area of Rome, where Hubschmid's motorbike gets off the road; he comments that with a brief "Scheiss!" (which is in the German version). I never heard such a convinced "Scheiss!" again!
