Imagine you want to make a James Bond-style film but you cannot afford to get the best actors, the best writing or the best stunts....then you would be imagining a "Kommissar X" movie. This series of movies was made by a German production company and starred an Italian guy as Agent Jo Louis Walker (Tony Kendall) and an American (body builder Brad Harris) as his sidekick, Captain Tom Rowland. The pair travel the world fighting baddies and keeping the world safe.
In "Death is Nimble, Death is Quick" ("Kommissar X-Deri Gelbe Katzen", literally, Commissar X and the Three Yellow Cats), the pair of heroes are hired to protect a rich woman from various thugs who have followed her all the way to the jungles of Ceylon (since it's been renamed Sri Lanka). They particularly want the Captain, as one of the bodyguards for the lady had been given a death blow by some martial arts expert...and the Captain is an expert in these fighting arts. He suspects a crime organization called 'The Golden Cats' is responsible.
This is a pretty ordinary adventure film and nothing makes it stand out in any way. The action is okay but after a while there is a sameness to much of the fighting and killing (aside from the poison gas in the car scene). Not bad...not very good either...a perfect example of a time-passer, though it is nice that they filmed it in Singapore. For a more interesting Bond-wannabe, I prefer the George Nader 'Jerry Cotton' films.
By the way, on one copy of this film I found on YouTube, it's dubbed into English. However, about 2/3 of the way through the film, about five minutes is in German. I have no idea why, though the movie was originally in German.
