The 1980s best attempt at making a female James Bond...
5 July 2008 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Source where I got this rarity: Old Danish VHS called "S*H*E* - Super Hemmelig Efterretningsagent" = Super Secret Agent.

Okay, here is the story: The beautiful Cornelia Sharpe plays Lavinia Kean, a secret agent who infiltrates criminal affiliations by seducing random guys, and in this movie, her main victim is Baron Cesare Magnasco (Omar Sharif), who has made an evil scheme with his old friend Owen Hooper/Hunt (Robert Lansing) to destroy the world's fuel sources by contaminating it with some sort of poison that turns it into sludge.

The "poison" was invented by Magnasco's girl friend (as in "a friend who is also a girl") Dr. Else Biebling, played by Anita Ekberg. She is very jealous of Lavinia, and tries to get her away from Magnasco, but with little success, as Lavinia - with the help from her friends Lacey (William Traylor) and Rudolf Caserta (Fabio Testi) cracks all the codes and saves the day.

A serious dose of suspense of disbelief is needed to make this movie work, however, but seeing as the writer (Richard Maibaum) has made the scripts for about a dozen James Bond-movies, this one isn't more unbelievable than any of those other movies, except for the fact that there's no "SUPER-VILLAIN", and the heroine is, well, a beautiful woman, and not some guy.

Verdict: Overall, I was quite bored with this movie, as I was expecting a LOT more action (the cover said "forbidden under 16 years", but there's no cursing, nobody dies, and there's nothing disturbing about it!) - I can easily recommend this as a family movie, as I'm sure it would entertain children - especially small girls. But for grown-up entertainment, it's a bit too light and uninteresting. The plot doesn't have any twists or surprises, as it's all done straight by the book.

5/10 for effort, and an extra star for Isabella Rye as the grotesque Russian she-male Fanya. Hilariously ugly.
