Mediterranean-shot James Bond spoof isn't worth your time
27 January 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OPERATION GOLD is a cheap and dumb rip-off of the James Bond series, made as a French/Italian/Spanish co-production and filmed all around the Mediterranean. It's certainly a sunny film to look at but in terms of quality it really isn't very good at all. Instead of being funny it merely comes across as a low rent imitation, complete with exaggerated action and over the top dialogue.

The main character plays a secret agent on the hunt for a stolen scepter, but of course everybody else including various spies and criminals also want to get their hands on it. Cue lots of nonsense action scenes and nubile women in bikinis parading around and flirting with the hero. I found the film devoid of laughs and originality; it felt like the director simply watched a couple of the Connery movies and used that as inspiration before he started the camera rolling.
