Storyline

The evil crime syndicate Thanatos is bent on taking over the world, using a magnetic wave generator that will cause all metal-based machinery to grind to a halt. However, the well-known British secret agent normally assigned to such tasks isn't available, so they engage his civilian brother, Neil, to help. Neil, played by Neil Connery, is a world-class plastic surgeon, hypnotist, and lip-reader, which turn out to be precisely the skills required for thwarting Thanatos. Written by Leo L. Schwab <ewhac@best.com>

Trivia

The taglines "'Neil Connery' is too much" and "OPERATION KID BROTHER is Too Much for One Mother!" are parodies of the tagline for the James Bond spoof movie Casino Royale (1967) which says "Casino Royale is too much for one James Bond!". See more »

I really didn't find this terrible!
21 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The biggest complaint with this movie is that it's an obvious James Bond ripoff. Well...it mostly is. It's still hard to really blame the film because it does feature the brother of Sean Connery. There's even a mention to Ian Fleming's novels. I thought those were pretty cute little tongue in cheek references, whatever that means. Some of the action isn't that bad either. The explosions are done pretty well, but as we know from a Michael Bay film, those can never save an entire film. The fight scenes aren't bad.

The film still suffers from having a really dumb plot. It really does have no identity of its own. It was quite hard to follow, especially with how it was about radioactive rugs. That's weird even by James Bond standards. Like "The Village Of The Giants" it was hard to tell whether or not these jokes were intentional. I guess I'll give it credit for amusing me in some way. You do really have to watch the MST3K version as it truly is some of their best stuff. **
