Storyline

Flint is again called out of retirement when his old boss finds that he seems to have missed three minutes while golfing with the president. Flint finds that the president has been replaced by an actor (Flint's line [with a wistful look] is "An Actor as President?") Flint finds that a group of women have banded together to take over the world through subliminal brainwashing in beauty salons they own. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Quotes

Lisa Norton: You're quite accustomed to being admired by women, aren't you? All those, uh, ridiculous, uh...
Flint: Sighs? Yes, you're quite right. They are ridiculous. I must say it's refreshing to be with a beautiful woman who's above that sort of thing.
Lisa Norton: Why I never said I was above that sort of thing. What I meant was...
Flint: Yes?
Lisa Norton: You really are good at it Mr. Flint.
[Flint laughs]
Lisa Norton: Tell me something. What is it about you that makes you so irresistible to women?
Flint: It's very simple. I don't compete with them.

Good, But Not AS Good...
27 August 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Derek Flint's second outing falls juuuuuust a bit shy of recapturing the fun-filled spirit of this short-lived series' first film, 1965's "OUR MAN FLINT".

Being more in the style of the "BATMAN" TV series (which 20th Century Fox produced at that time as well), this film accentuates more of the absolutely outlandish camp, as opposed to the more subtle (okay, not REAL subtle, but...) tongue-in-cheek, nudge-nudge, wink-wink of the original "Flint" film (at one point, the audience is invited to "follow the bouncing Russian Star" & sing along with the Russian National Anthem as our hero, disguised as Fidel Castro, hijacks a plane FROM Cuba TO the Virgin Islands to foil the villains' E-ville plot... oh, yeah, & rescue his bevy of Flint-ettes).

For the record, even if this film had fallen WAY shy of the first film in everything overall, it'd still be better than the thankfully-aborted TV pilot, "Our Man Flint: Dead on Target". Sorry, but no one else but James Coburn can bring the character of Derek Flint to life. Even so, it seems that Coburn's interest in the character had begun to wane a tad by this time; after all, 2 years had gone by since "OMF", the world's political view had begun to change radically, & the Summer of Love was in full swing, baby... yeeeeaaaaaaahhhh!!

"IN LIKE FLINT" still has some of the first film's charm, but quite a few of the plot points are VERY dated & insulting, especially when viewed in the cold light of today's often harsh, overly-PC environment. The filmmakers' attitude toward women being able to quite easily take over the world are not as readily accepted as in "The Avengers" episode, "How To Succeed... at Murder". In fact, most of the time, the general mentality -- even that of the suave & cool, ultra-hip, super-modern Derek Flint -- is downright primordial, even in light of, or despite, the '60s Women's Rights Movements.

Even though it ain't great, it still ain't too bad, all things considered. I've seen much worse go around for years & if this is to be considered possibly James Coburn's only celluloid crime, he's waaaaaaaaay ahead of the game. Not a terrible feather to have in one's acting cap... or DVD collection.
