Mediocre production about secret agents and an international conspiracy
14 November 2005 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The film concerns about an American agent (George Ardisson) assigned to rescue a scientific (Eduardo Fajardo) abducted in Saint Felipe Island (South America) by a tyrant named Siqueiros (Fernando Sancho) . A Russian agent(Frank Wolff) equally will go to the island to free the scientist . The movie is a co-production Spanish-Italian about secret agents very usual in that time of the 60s . The origin results to be the ¨James Bond¨ series that originated an authentic flood of copies, imitations and rip offs , each time more awful . The picture has action packed, suspense , tension, thriller but with lackluster and little budget . The film is fast movement besides it is developed in various scenarios though specially on the hot island . However the movie is a bit boring and there are situations and images that are ridiculous and embarrassing . In the picture appears habitual actors of co-productions : the great Fernando Sancho, Eduardo Fajardo, both of whom are players of numerous Spaghetti Western . Besides are Sal Borgese, Luis Undini, and Luz Marquez , everybody are customary actors of this kind genres . Motion picture is regularly directed by Sergio Sollima despite of directing some classic Spaghetti Western . Rating: Average but entertaining .
