The world's weather seems to have changed dramatically with violent storms everywhere and long dormant volcanoes suddenly erupting. No one is sure what is happening or why but when American intelligence chief Cramden loses yet another team of agents, there appears to be only one man who can do the job: Derek Flint, former super spy, incredibly rich and the ultimate ladies man. Despite Cramden's concerns, Flint is on the job and soon discovers that the Earth's weather is under the control of a secret organization known as GALAXY whose scientists are looking to pacify the world and devote humankind to scientific pursuits.Written by
Made as a spoof of the popular James Bond films, Our Man Flint relied heavily on the current craze in "camp". It even bears a strong look-and-feel resemblance to the mid-60s TV show that epitomized this concept, Batman. The similarity really jumped out to this viewer who remembers watching Batman during his high school years.
The problem is that Batman was cheesy, lacking depth of plot and characters...but it was just a TV show. Our Man Flint suffers from the same affliction; it's very shallow fare. Good for the camp factor and very '60s (those innocent '60s between Eisenhower and 'Nam). Our Man Flint is ok, but don't expect anything special because it doesn't deliver.
