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 Flint finds that the president has been replaced by an actor (Flint's line [with a wistful look] is "An Actor as President?")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>

Good Sequel to a Very Good Original
17 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The producers of this movie did a credible job with this sequel. This is exactly what you'd expect Flint to do in another adventure to save the world. His side as a scientist is better highlighted in this sequel as he is studies dolphins, and also shows his aptitude for plants and chemistry as he analyzes the drug that was used on Cramden. The colors are bit more wild, and true to this series, there're lots of nice looking women.

The movie shows the belief that the western world had on science to better our world. But looking at this movie, it seems that people of this period had better life than we have now. If you look at the millionaire lifestyle of Derek Flint, and compare it to the millionaire lifestyles of today, it seems Flint had more lavish homes, and lifestyle. Which begs the question, did science really improve the quality of life we live now.

One thing I can tell from this movie is there were less people back then, and things weren't as cramped or as hectic. Take for instance Louigi's restaurant Cramden has his dinner in. There's room to spare everywhere. You won't see that in restaurants these days. World population was less than half of what it is now, and it shows.

Getting back to the action of Derek Flint, he doesn't disappoint. James Coburn was perfect fit as super agent Derek Flint. His adventure to save the world is just as exciting as the original. Good sequel to the original.
