Storyline

A series of unexplainable accidents befall the people and companies responsible for developing the world's first supersonic airliner (SST1). A British agent is sent to investigate and with the help of another agent uncovers a plot masterminded by Carl Petersen who stands to gain eight million pounds if the aircraft is not ready by a certain date. The evil Petersen has developed a number of "robots" (actually rather beautiful girls with "electronic brains") to help him sabotage the SST1 project by means of "infrasound" (extreme low frequency sound waves) which can be directed at people or objects with devastating results. Written by Kevin Steinhauer <K.Steinhauer@BoM.GOV.AU>

Some girls shouldn't bother...
21 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sequel to the reasonable "Deadliest of the species", featuring the return of Richard Johnson as Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond. The sequel fails to come up to even the varying standards of the original, and feels long and laborious. More stunts, more girls and an even more exotic location fail to boost this flagging film, which begins to feel very tired rather too early on, and its' plot less run-around nature soon becomes tedious. Cashing in on the success of Bondmania, this film failed to even show any understanding of what it was trying to copy in a film which features Robert Morley as a camp cookery teacher, called "Miss Mary", Johnson giving love-making lessons to a female robot, an embarrassing Bond-wannabe, played by Ronnie Stevens, a carbon-copy villain with a Napoleon complex, and a lot of embarrassing stuff you just wish would end mercifully soon. The weapon of the day is an ultra-sonic device, which shatters glass and eardrums, and provides the film's climax with a lot of bang, but only after enduring a lot of pseudo-science on the subject. Notable for featuring an early appearance by Joanna Lumley in the pre/during credits sequence.

PROS; -A few airborne stunts look nice, and are mildly suspenseful.

-Some nice scenery; the villains' base is particularly aesthetically pleasing

-Ronnie Stevens is endearing in a terrible part

-Daliah Lavi is a strong presence, as the film's central villainess

CONS; -Richard Johnson looks tired, and can't act his way out of a bad part in a derivative film

-The theme song is among the worst ever-penned, and is written buy should-have-known-better John Barry collaborator Don Black

-No pace, no atmosphere, drive, plot or excitement really in any scene

– the film is virtually dead, and merely exists to show women in bikinis and a lot of embarrassing gags

-Drummond is not a real character, merely a Bond-clone, with no personality or interesting characteristics

-A weak, overlong boat race/chase sequence

-Robert Morley in a hugely embarrassing role for a good, if somewhat limited actor

-Many of the main women in this film look very similar, and its' hard to tell some of them apart

-Actually, virtually everything; it's not a good film
