Trivia

Gareth Hunt replaced Nicky Henson as Agent No. 1 Charles Bind. Henson joined the Royal Shakespeare Company and could not do the film. Henson had originally signed on to do three Charles Bind pictures and had previously portrayed the character in the first film in the series No. 1 of the Secret Service (1977). See more »

Goofs

No effort has been made to conceal the fact that all scenes supposedly taking place in the US and Switzerland (and the "Atlantic island" at the end of the film) were actually shot in the UK. Most obvious are the landscapes and foliage, British accents, right-hand-drive UK-model vehicles with UK license plates (including the LHD Cadillac that No. 1 rides in), UK road markings and vehicles driving on the left side of the road.

Humorless sequel to Number 1 of the Secret Service
23 May 2006 | by (New York, NY, USA) – See all my reviews

This film is a humorless followup/sequel to Lindsay Shonteff's previous Charles Bind adventure, Number One of The Secret Service starring the very funny & charismatic Nicky Henson as Bind. In this adventure, it's Gareth Hunt(Mike Gambit of The New Avengers) who takes over from Henson as agent Bind and he lacks both a sense of humor and fun as well as panache and style that Nicky Henson brought to the role.Hunt's portrayal of Bind is similar or even worse than Timothy Dalton's portrayal of 007 in the 1980's. He plays the role like he is still Mike Gambit and his delivery of one-liners fall flat. It doesn't help either that this film has even less or no production values than the previous film and the action/fight scenes are more shoddily done than the first film. The film's only saving grace is Nick Tate of Space 1999 fame as Jenson Fury, Agent Ultraone who is Bind's opponent & opposite number in the film, who provides the right fun and humor in the role. Incredibly enough, Shonteff directed a third Charles Bind film in 1990 called Number One Gun starring Michael Howe as Bind that was never theatrically released!
