Mike Kovac: Secret Agent Man
23 November 2010 | by (brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** Former Korean war combat photographer and captain in the US Army Reserve Mike Kovac, Charles Bronson, is recruited to go undercover in the sunny French Reviera to get to the bottom of an ex-GI black market ring that's been in operation in that country since the end of WWII.

Besides following orders from his superior Col. Boyer, Arthur Space, Mike is more then happy to travel to France, with the US Army picking up the tab, where he can not only enjoy the scenery but be able to take off his shirt and show off his magnificent physique on the French Reveria where all the sexy French women can get goosebumps looking at it.

It's after US Army undercover Agent Crane, Richard Benedict, was murdered by the leader of the ex-GI black market ring US Army deserters, and former army corporal, only known as the Colonel, Don Gordon, that it was decided by the US Government to put his whole operating out of business. Thogether with the US Army deserters that are part of it!

Kovac gets wind of the Colonel's next move in him attempting to kidnap and hold for ransom Americas top action/adventure hero, much like Bronson was to become years later, actor Hank Fletcher, George Wallace, who's to attend the prestigious Cann Film Festvial. With the help of the local French police and US Military Kovac sets a trap for the Colonel and his gang who are planning to grab the not too corporative,in thinking he can handle things all by himself, Fletcher who's more interest in having a good time then in his own safety.

***SPOILERS*** It's in fact one of the local women that Fletcher picked up to have his good time with Annette, Danielle Aubry, who's part of the Colonel's kidnap plan. Kovac getting Fletcher's sport-scar to run out of gas before it reaches the fork in the road where the Colonel and his boys plan to kidnap him screws up the Colonel's master plan. It's then that Kovac comes to the very reluctant Fletcher's,in thinking he's making a movie where he's the hero in it, rescue and after taking it on the chin as well as tummy Kovac judo and karate chops the Colonel silly. As for the Colonel's band of merry army deserters their taken care of off camera by members of the US Army whom they were once members of.
