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?

Quotes

[discussing the "other" Michael Corben]
Lt. Col. Larabee: This operative has been living under an alias for the last five years, establishing, building and maintaining deep cover in the United States. Nobody knows what he looks like here. They don't know his age, race or background. All that we do know is that he is arriving on air Trans-At flight thirty-five departing Detroit tomorrow morning under the codename "Michael Corben."
Haywood: Lieutenant Colonel Larabee's codename is... "Mother."

This Movie is Pretty cool and Underrated!!!
6 April 2002 | by (Brasil) – See all my reviews

Well, I've had the opportunity of watching this movie a long time ago and had quite a few good memories of it. Yesterday I decided to rent this movie for the old times. Man, it was so good.

The main plot of the movie is kind of strange and dated for our time but it is very funny. This movie has a strange power to really amuses you.

The acting its not so bad, its good to tell you the truth. Specially Gabrielle Anwar that kicks some major ass. There is a scene, the first one that she appears, in a car that man...its unbelievable. If you have the chance, rent it. I assure you some good hours of fun.
