Drab
20 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

I have absolutely nothing against Black & White movies, but if there is one genre that I feel is served MUCH better by being shot in color, it's the Euro-Spy genre. A B & W mid-1960s French spy movie (which this one is) looks as awkward to me as a color mid-1940s American film noir would. The plot is decent if unoriginal (wrong coat -> mistaken identity), the hero is OK, the female lead is personable enough, there is one nice bit of stunt car driving, and even some (intentionally) funny moments, but overall "The Reluctant Spy" is just too drab and boring for me to recommend without reluctance (pun intended). Maybe if the striking Gaia Germani had a larger role....*1/2 out of 4.
