One of the Great Bad Movies of the 80s
28 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unmasking the Idol falls neatly into that category of "so bad it's good." The film is ideal for late night riffing - a la MST3K - with friends.

Like its sequel, the Order of the Black Eagle, Unmasking the Idol stars superspy Duncan Jax and his pet baboon. Unlike in the sequel, Duncan - who is a middle-aged white guy with a receding hairline - is not only a superspy, but the "world's greatest ninja." No, seriously.

There's too much great stuff here to name, from a cheesy James Bond theme song to a tepid red villain with a legion of hapless henchman. This is one of my favorite train wrecks, well worth going out of your way to see if you enjoy laughing at movies.
