Marc Saint-Clair wins a medal at a Kendo tournament in Tokyo, Japan. He offers his medal to his American friend Clyde as a good luck charm. As an airline pilot, Clyde accompanies a C.IA. agent, Finn, in a secret mission to investigate over China regarding a supersonic bomber. While Clyde is absent, Marc has an affair with Clyde's girlfriend Jennifer, before he learns of the pilot's disappearance. In grief, Marc goes by boat to Hong Kong, trying to know what happened to Clyde. One month later, a young Chinese woman who escaped from an organization, the Black Dragons, reaches Marc and informs him that Clyde is alive and detained in a secret island. Starting from there, Marc (a.k.a. Judoka) must face the henchmen of this organization with his judo skills and try to save the world, along with the C.I.A. and the bumbling Jennifer..Written by
It was long ago.It was a time when,in the wake of James Bond and his phenomenal (and deserved) success ,France was searching for its spy:they tried "OSS 117" (Kervin Matthews,then Frederick Stafford)-and that OSS might come back to work pretty soon,played by Jean Dujardin-,"Coplan" -who ,to be honest had begun his career in the movies before Bond,and many many others whose names I forgot.
Marc Sinclair was one of them .Marc Briand ,who portrays him was not an actor but a judoka -the title is no misnomer- whose career was short-lived.Marilu Tolo plays the love interest and she has a ridiculous scene where she is supposed to be drunk but fails totally to convince.
I met one of my pals soon after seeing it: "completely silly" he said.
