Everything negative any reviewer said about this film is absolutely true. Still, I think it has great entertainment value. First of all there is the lovely Sylvia Koscina as femme fatale which is really pure Matt Helm/The Mna from Uncle terriroty. Then there are nice car chases, some really funny scenes, Stephen Boyd as scheming mastermind etc. The hero, Rex Maynard, is a slightly overweight young singer eloping with his producer's daughter. Given his physique, the fight scenes in which he knocks out at least three mobsters are a laugh. To be honest, I didn't really get what the story was about due to the fact that it was somewhat convoluted and the quality of the soundtrack was awful. The film is set in Africa, yet there is a surprisingly large number of Italian cars on the streets. And I do wonder why someone would fly Allitalia from LA to South Africa.
