Bad but painless James Bond ripoff from Italy
3 June 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

In the 60s, Italy capitalized on the immense success of the James Bond series by churning out a series of cheap super-spy films. They had silliness that'd make Roger Moore blush and viewed today come across as moderately amusing camp. Just don't expect anything too exciting or a lead as charismatic as Sean Connery. Harry Sennet (the super-spy of this flick) isn't James Bond. Hell, he isn't even Derek Flint or Matt Helm. Fortunately, "Lightning Bolt" could provide some fun for psychotronic and Something Weird Video fans.

"Lightning Bolt" is really a painless little film, despite the overlong running length. Anthony Eisley is a rather dull and personality-devoid lead. Fortunately, the women surrounding him are breathtakingly beautiful your attention is often not on him. Also, the sets impressed me a good deal. The evil master criminal's undersea dwelling has some cool art-deco sets. The effects are often laughably bad with miniatures galore. "Lightning Bolt" isn't anything special and it isn't a cult classic. However, provided you don't pay too much for a copy, its a reasonably fun way to kill an hour and a half. (5/10)
