Storyline

When Michael Corben, along with the rest of his high-school French class, set out for a trip to France, he runs headlong into international intrigue: Agent Michael Corbin has just been disposed of by the evil forces of Augustus Steranko. When it's learned that Michael Corbin is alive and well, and still on his way to France, he's beseiged by both the good guys and the bad guys. British Intelligence outfits him with a series of James-Bond-like gizmos, and Steranko sends more would-be assassins after him. Can Michael stop the evil Steranko's plans for European domination?

Goofs

As Michael climbs down the side of the house in the last scene (carrying Mariska), an explosion occurs and you see his feet lift off the side of the wall. His shoes are supposed to have suction that hold him up, if his shoes lift he should fall - but he does not move. See more »

Quotes

[Ilsa has informed Steranko of Michael's capture]
Augustus Steranko: Good. Don't kill him yet. I want to talk to him.
Ilsa Grunt: Why do you want to talk to him?
Augustus Steranko: I never get to talk to anyone.
Ilsa Grunt: Talk, talk, talk! Talking is your tragic flaw, Augustus!
Augustus Steranko: And you, Grunt, are singlehandedly killing the art of conversation.

A Poor Man's James bond
8 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A stupid but pretty entertaining James Bond-type action flick, this features comedy a lot more than it does action. There were enough funny lines in the comedy to make it a keeper in my collection for awhile. Like the Bond movies, there were also a good number of clever gadgets.

The story is preposterous, so you can't take any of it seriously.There is too much macho baloney from the young hero in here, played by Richard Grieco, not a household name but a decent actor. Speaking of acting, Robin Bartlett, who plays the French teacher, overacts terrible and is just plain annoying. It's no wonder we've never heard her name before.

Action scenes range from pretty good to incredibly stupid.
