This is yet another case where I readily admit the movie in question isn't very good. To me, however, there is some (some - not a lot - just some) entertainment to be had in Missile X: The Neutron Bomb Incident (we'll shorten that to Missile X for the rest of this). Granted, much of the enjoyment I derived from Missile X wasn't what the filmmakers were going for, but this film is quite often unintentionally hilarious. I'll limit this to three examples. First, there's Peter Graves as the Bond-like hero, Alex Franklin. It's near impossible to take him seriously. He's far too old for the role. And watching him put the moves on some young woman is just plain hysterical. Next, Missile X features some of the worst (and funniest) fight choreography I've seen. There's a hotel casino fight that had me laughing out loud. Or the shoot-out between the good guys and the bad guys where they're no more than 10 feet apart, yet no one gets hit. Third, there's the ridiculous music accompanying almost every scene. It has 70s feel to it that is totally out of place in Missile X. It's hard not to giggle when even the most mundane events, like getting in a taxi, are backed by a loud, funky organ riff.
I suppose that one of the most interesting aspects of Missile X are shots of pre-Revolution Iran. Other than the Iran bits and laugh or two, there's not much here to recommend.
