Spanish/Italian made European James Bond style spy thriller. When a professor's powerful invention, a molecular disintegration weapon is stolen, it's up to super cool agent 077 Mike Murphy to retrieve the dangerous tool and take care of the potential evildoers. Filled with fights, car chases, gadgetry and beautiful women, this spy adventure helped create an action/spy mini-genre craze in Europe in the mid 1960's along with the first three James Bond films.

Did You Know?


Although this film marks George Lazenby's first film appearance, almost all copies of the film that remain in existence have been cut from the original 92 minutes to 60 minutes in length, and the part of the film in which he appeared is part of the cut 32 minutes. Because only the cut 60 minute versions of the film are still available, this has led many people to say that Lazenby actually does not appear in the film, but that is because the original 92 minute versions with him in the movie are no longer available. Therefore Lazenby's first film appearance has apparently been lost. See more »

Likable flick with a classic non-ending
5 February 2003 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

This short film, the English-dubbed print only runs about an hour, is by-the-numbers spy stuff but it is never boring. It doesn't have time to be! Luis Davila (Ypotron, Make Your Bets Ladies, The Viscount) is agent Mike Murphy (for us English speakers) and he's after a ray gun that completely disintegrates whatever gets in the way of its blue beam.

The ratio of action per minute is way up there. Four people are killed in the first five minutes! The last of these is unfortunate enough to have his head caught in a car window and is then dragged down the street! There are plenty of fights (contrary to the short blurb on the back of SWV's tape box, the fights are actually pretty well staged and exciting), car chases, gun battles, torture, and people getting slapped around.

You could actually do a lot worse than this little adventure, believe me. Director Gregg Tallas (Assignment Skybolt) has made a pretty fun no-budget thriller that falls into the so-bad-it's-good category.
