Goofs

(at around 55 mins) In a European scene, youngsters are astonished that 'Natalia' (or Woody's comic book creation of Laser Lady' ) is before them. Several children have comic books in their hands. As the boy in the foreground turns his copy around, you can actually read the back cover (US) edition advertisements and further can realize the front cover is in US English! You will also note that all children have US versions. See more »

Comic spy spoof
27 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the most talented actor's of his era stars in the lead role. Perhaps we could say that the other actors' were being given a chance. There was no lack of ambition in making the film. Some of the on-location scenes are truly stunning. Although the special effects are starting to appear dated they are none the less original and brilliant. The concept of the film is a cross between a comic book hero and a secret agent who failed O'Level spying. It has the humour of the Morecambe and Wise show and the special effects of an early Bond film. A worthy flick that will appeal to everyone from young to not-so-young. It contains humour, gadgets, one-liners and plenty of action and is certainly not as predictable as one might think.
