Our Man Flint is possibly the greatest film ever made. But amazingly, In Like Flint is even better. That would make it "The Really Greatest Film Ever Made" ... "The Super-Greatest Film Ever Made"! ZOWIE!
Most sequels don't come close to the wonderfulness of the original productions, but "In Like Flint" does.
It's sense of fun, spoof and action equals the original as super secret agent Derek Flint fights yet super-duper evil organization, this one run by America's richest and most powerful women, including the knockout blond Jean Hale; and veteran actress Anna Lee, who was John Wayne's squeeze in "Flying Tigers" in 1942.
But James Coburn is the main reason. Without his subtle over-the-top Coburn Cool, there would be no Derk Flint and therefore, no Flint series.
And as before Lee J. Cobb is marvelous as Lloyd Cramden, head of our super-duper secret spy agency, Z.O.W.I.E.
Jerry Goldsmith returns to handle the spyalicious score, chock full of hip tunes like "Your Z.O.W.I.E Face."
Coburn is great and the two Flint films are just so darned fun! How can anyone not have a great time with either "Our Man Flint' or "In Like Flint"?
