A government space saucer is hijacked mid-flight by a powerful laser beam under the control of Jose Ortega, who then proceeds to rape the female pilot, Sheila Sommars. ICE sends agent Matt Helm to Acapulco with Sheila to recover the saucer, under the guise of Matt taking fashion photographs of beautiful models. Matt is temporarily side-tracked, falling prey to the seductive charms of enemy agent Franceca Madeiros.Written by
This film also marked the final time that Matt faced an agent from the Bureau of International Government and Order (a.k.a. BIG-O). See more »
Throughout the entire film you can see the wires that are used to lift things and people up whenever the "anti-gravity ray" is used. This is especially obvious in the scenes where the saucer is brought down to the jungle and when Matt rescues Sheila from the runaway train wagon. See more »
The Music, The Spaceship, Dean, The Girls, Kurt & The Music
My God! What a great UNDER-RATED movie! Where do I start? The opening theme song and the images that go with it get ten out of ten. Then after we are finished with the cool theme music we cut to the spaceship...with some cool Hugo Montenergo music playing over the spaceship footage. From this point I am hooked on this fun,fun,fun, very 1960s movie! Dean Martin is outstanding in this film and soon-to-be Land Of The Giants cast member Kurt Kasznar is fine as well. Albert Salmi is here and he will join Kurt as a guest star in one episode of Land Of The Giants (Graveyard Of Fools).
The only thing I have against the film is the train-track scene where it is a bit too obvious that the actors are actually in the studio and not out on location at all. The Ambushers is FUN.
