Unlike the novel, this takes a light-hearted, spoofy style with Dean Martin essentially playing himself. The Matt Helm of the novels is a much darker creation. See more »
When the hovercraft first arrives on Wall's island, it comes to a rest parallel to the shore on a concrete pad surrounded by gravel. In the very next shot it is in an entirely different location, concrete everywhere, no gravel, next to an ancient fort wall and facing the ocean. See more »

Coming up next Dean Martin as Matt Helm in The Ambushers See more »
This second entry of the Matt Helms (Dean Martin) spy-spoof series is no better or worse than the Silencers or The Ambushers, but is a notch above the final entry, The Wrecking Crew. For one thing, Ann-Margret was never more beautiful (face and body) than from that time period. Energy to spare, she's on a constant high of momentum. Also included is the lovely Camilla Sparv (Michael Caine's girlfriend at the time) and she always adds class. Plus, Beverly Adams as the gorgeous Lovie Kravzit. Dino is pretty much working on 1/2 power, but does his job.
A 5 out of 10. Best performance = Ann-Margret. These Helm films will seem better now than when they were released in the mid to late 60's. Just fun stuff (like Casino Royale) with tons of babes and decent villains. Check it out!
