Modest but decent imitation
14 May 2016 | by RodrigAndrisanSee all my reviews

This James Bond pastiche is not all bad. Without high-caliber actors and certainly not having the big budget of the films in the original series, it manages to keep your attention to follow it to the end. That's because many films in the same category are actually hard to see until the end, only the fans of the genre, or of an actor or actress fans, have the strength and patience to see them in full. Director Nick Nostro and lead actor who plays Superargo, Giovanni Cianfriglia, they are not some celebrities. Gérard Tichy who plays Diabolikus the villain, also it's not a big name. The same with Loredana Nusciak and Mónica Randall. Yet, all of them they manage to do a pretty good job.
