Storyline

Ever-so mellow Agent Sam Casey is in a satellite explosion and the radiation turns him invisible. He gets a watch that keeps him visible, and he uses it to switch from visible to invisible. He is assigned to transport a chemical called Tripolydine, which is purported to be the most efficient fuel; when the cover is blown on that and he uncovers and stops the Tripolydine fraud, he must then stop terrorist Robert Denby from blowing up racecars.

Goofs

Sam states that the Tripolidine will explode and 'level an entire town.' When it finally explodes, it barely blows up the back of the truck. However, there is no reason why Sam would know exactly how explosive the bottle of Tripolidine was, as he had never seen it explode himself and was merely repeating what he'd been told. See more »

Quotes

Sam Casey: Leonard, I hear you've grown quite a mustache since I've been away!

Alternate Versions

Two versions of this movie exist. In the cut shown on "Mystery Science Theater 3000", background information from the pilot film of "Gemini Man" (episodes of which were combined for this movie) are presented via opening narration and stills, and later flashbacks. In the alternate version (shown at the 2000 Gateway Media Convention in St. Louis), the narration and flashbacks are not present. Instead, the movie opens with a condensed version of the Gemini Man's "origin" from the first part of the pilot film. Also, some of the dubbed-in lines linking the two original episodes this movie is taken from differ in each version. See more »

"Inspired by HG Wells", who is now spinning in his grave.
4 May 1999 | by UbiqSee all my reviews

Two episodes of atrocious 70s TV show stapled together to make a film. Secret agent has ability to become invisible due to exposure radiation or something. Has a "Southern" character only slightly less annoying than The Dukes of Hazzard. If you see a copy of it somewhere in a used bin, buy it then burn the video.
