Not quite as fun as Golden Eyes
This was made before Golden Eye, and has the same main character in it. It is a good spoof of spy movies. This movie has a ridiculous plot and some ridiculous characters. There were times when I had no idea what was happening. There are a number of actors that many of you watchers of Japanese movies will recognize. There is the Japanese Shemp, Japanese discount George Lazenby, and that one actor that almost always plays the comic relief. The acting is pretty good. But for me the best part was Mie Hama in that red bikini. As for the plot, it involves gun smuggling. The one thing that took me out of the movie just a bit was when they were speaking English or French there would be Japanese subtitles, and since I can't read kanji ( I can read hiragana) I had no idea what those subtitles said, also a bit difficult to read since they are top to bottom and right to left. I don't know who wrote or sang the songs in this movie (and Golden Eyes) but they are some of the worst songs ever and they are not sung well. But if you want a light hearted spoof of 007 movies then this will fit the bill, especially if you like a beautiful Japanese woman in a red bikini.
