Trivia

The title, "Matchless", is a play on "Flint" from "Our Man Flint". The Flint films were spoofs of the Bond films, which many argue were spoofs of the Bond novels, which themselves were spoofs of the prevailing spy thrillers of their day. So this film is essentially a spoof of a spoof of a spoof of a spoof. See more »

Goofball Spy Spoof
2 March 2002 | by (Boulder City) – See all my reviews

A Euro production that calls upon the talents of people like Patrick O'Neal, Donald Pleasence and the consummate movie and TV bad guy, Henry Silva, can't be all bad, which it isn't.

A spaghetti spy flick spoof, which starts with the inheritance of a mystical ring containing a drug which can enable the wearer invisible (but not their clothes, leading to usually interesting rematerialization scenes), and can only be used every ten hours, leads to a manhunt for our titular hero as he is pursued for the ring throughout Europe by every single government espionage agency on the Earth, as well as his backstabbing, sleazy partner (Silva) who provides a great deal of comic relief during the chase.

Nothing tremendous in storytelling, it serves as a light hearted romp for the stars.
