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>

Disappointing sequel that quickly outstays its welcome
10 September 2010 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Sadly, the sequel to the surprisingly enjoyable Deadlier Than the Male outstays its welcome, and surprisingly quickly. More a rehash than a sequel, simply swapping oil for planes in what desperately wants to be a British version of an Our Man Flint film but doesn't even come close to being a British In Like Flint. This time Drummond's ditched the nephew but is saddled with Ronnie Stevens' awfully nice embassy official-cum-bodyguard ("Call me Butch") and Sydne Rome's kooky ditz following him around like a lovesick puppydog. As if that weren't enough, the film constantly undermines him at every turn, be it a bad knee that makes him seem a bit of a codger or a wardrobe that makes him look too much like a knockoff of Connery's Bond without any of the ability. Nigel Green has been replaced by James Villiers as the would-be supervillain with Napoleonic delusions but who dresses like Wellington ("Never back a loser"), but despite a couple of bits of effective makeup there's not much he can bring to what's a surprisingly dull party. Even the visuals are uninspired, the decision not to shoot in the same 2.35:1 widescreen ratio as its predecessor making it feel at times like a busted TV pilot.
