Storyline

The world's weather seems to have changed dramatically with violent storms everywhere and long dormant volcanoes suddenly erupting. No one is sure what is happening or why but when American intelligence chief Cramden loses yet another team of agents, there appears to be only one man who can do the job: Derek Flint, former super spy, incredibly rich and the ultimate ladies man. Despite Cramden's concerns, Flint is on the job and soon discovers that the Earth's weather is under the control of a secret organization known as GALAXY whose scientists are looking to pacify the world and devote humankind to scientific pursuits.

Trivia

The odd, discordant guitar part played throughout the movie, which is used almost note for note nearly 20 years later by an up and coming band, is a testament to the enduring quality of the composer's music. The band, Wall of Voodoo, best known for its early 1980s hit "Mexican Radio", uses that strange note progression in its updated remake of the Johnny Cash hit, "Ring of Fire." Their version, however, is a nearly ten-minute-long experiment in what would later be termed as techno music. Its mechanical programmed background rhythm and synth-heavy adaption paved the way for later bands. But its use of the riff from this film performed nearly musically verbatim, that makes their version so intriguing. See more »

THE ULTIMATE SPOOF
22 July 1999 | by (cardiff, wales) – See all my reviews

When "FLINT" first opened in 1966 much was made of the hero's gadgets,particularly his multi purpose cigarette lighter but the truth of the matter was that Flint needed no gadgets,he was a self made superman,able to master any art ( aesthetic or martial) that he wanted and James Coburn played him to perfection.Flint was introduced in the movie in a terrific fashion,displaying his fighting abilities against karate experts and fencers in a style that made him seem unique and skilful in a way not seen before in movies where secret agents usually felled their enemies with a firm sock to the jaw. So did Flint;but he delivered his with his feet. Any movie that climaxes with the hero alone on his adversary's secret island base using wits and kicks to fight his way out and destroy it is okay by me and GALAXY island is straight out of a 60's psychedelic nightmare with flashing lights,disintegration machines and even a trained anti-American eagle.All this and the disco from hell as well.Unlike the Bonds of the era,the girls in "FLINT" are a bit antiseptic and the career of the leading lady(Gila Golan)went nowhere after this.The villains are nothing special either but this doesn't matter; Coburn is the movie.He strides lithely through it with a catlike grace and cheshire cat grin knowing full well that he can overcome any obstacle put in his way.What a man! What a movie! It's a shame that after just one poor sequel,Flint retired to that great penthouse in the sky. Maybe he's ripe for a remake.
