Trivia

The title, "Matchless", is a play on "Flint" from "Our Man Flint". The Flint films were spoofs of the Bond films, which many argue were spoofs of the Bond novels, which themselves were spoofs of the prevailing spy thrillers of their day. So this film is essentially a spoof of a spoof of a spoof of a spoof. See more »

Not great film art, but fun to watch
22 February 2006 | by jd-gudmundsonSee all my reviews

Wonderful mindless fun entertainment. Goofy plot, passable acting, clumsy dialog, but it is the kind of movie that doesn't ask much of the viewer, and viewers shouldn't ask much of it except for a bit of fun. I had fun. There is a wonderful bad guy, there are beautiful women like in the James Bond films, and there is a rather hapless quasi-Bond type who gets caught up in the intrigue. This is a film in the 1960s spoof genre, with its chase scenes, cars, planes, helicopters, parachutes, kites, boats, and on and on. It pokes fun at the James Bond type of movie, while at the same time having a bit of its own espionage action, just enough that the film could stand on its own (shakily) as a spy/seduction movie. This is worth renting if you can get it. It is too bad they don't make more of this fun entertainment these days.
