An Adequate EuroSpy Film
15 December 2016 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

This movie begins with the assassination of a Turkish agent who is involved in a possible deal involving the purchase of several Mirage IV jets from France. As it so happens, certain factions within the world have no intention of allowing this deal to proceed and so when Turkey sends a high-level diplomat with the last name of "Baskine" (Sauveur Sasporte) all efforts are made to kill him as well. To prevent this the French government assigns an agent by the name of "Louis Rapiereto" (Roger Hanin) to protect him and his wife "Madame Baskine" (Maria Mauban) along with their daughter "Mehlica Baskine" (Daniela Bianchi). But what the French government doesn't know is that two separate groups are involved in undermining this deal and that they both have different ideas on how to accomplish this task. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was an okay "James Bond" clone which had a decent plot but tended to misfire when it came to some of the scenes involving humor. Likewise, I don't believe Daniela Bianchi was used to her fullest potential either. In any case, this turned out to be an adequate Eurospy film for the most part and I have rated it accordingly. Average.
