A scientist invents a filter that can increase the power of a laser beam, turning it into a death ray! A dangerous crime organization wants the device and will stop at nothing to get it, while murder and violence follow Joe and Tom to Singapore as they try to foil the evil plans. Written by
Set in Singapore, this entry in the "Kommissar X" series is a step down from "Kiss Kiss, Kill Kill". The main problem is the plot, which is so loose and disconnected that it feels almost non-existent. Most of the film simply consists of Joe Walker and his sidekick Tom Rowland going from place to place, getting attacked by random goons, beating them up, Joe flirting with a lady, repeat. The scenery is nice, there are plenty of beautiful women, and the leads still have their charm, but the film never really comes together, and in all honesty it's a bit of a bore. Oddest aspect: the actors who played the villain and the No. 1 henchman in "Kiss Kiss, Kill Kill" are back, as different but almost identical characters! (**)
