DANGER MAN goes out with a whimper
1 September 2007 | by mleeperSee all my reviews

The only two loosely-connected episodes of the third season of DANGER MAN put together to make a feature film, mostly for television.

KIROSHI loses most of the atmosphere of the series when it goes to color. Color probably increased production value so the style changed to exploit the popularity of James Bond films. It lost much of its subtlety. The writing is actually very bad with plot elements seemingly borrowed from Bond films and perhaps MISSION IMPOSSIBLE. Patrick McGoohan did well to leave the series. The fighting is unconvincing and the villains are a little too much on the a cross between Bond and Fu Manchu. The stage-bound production is even more obvious in color.

It is just a lukewarm, stagy, comic-book-like spy adventure.
