Watchable, though more interesting than entertaining
20 January 2018 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

While "OSS 117 Se Dechaine" (a.k.a. "OSS 117 is Unleased") wasn't the first filmed adaptation of the literary hero created by writer Jean Bruce, it was the first to come out after the international success of the James Bond movie "Dr. No". Obviously, this movie was made with the intention of aping James Bond. However, if you are expecting this movie to be as hard hitting and action packed as a James Bond movie from the 1960s, you will probably be disappointed. There is more of a laid back attitude throughout instead of a feeling of tension or excitement. And there is very little action (though the few hand-to-hand combat sequences do pack some serious juice.) However, the movie is interesting that is portrays spying in a more realistic manner. There is always a feeling that whatever happens in this movie could very well have happened in real life. And while the movie does get slow at times, I personally was never bored, since the French perspective does add some charm and freshness. If you are looking for action, you better look elsewhere. But if you are tired of James Bond-style spy spoofing and want a more serious take on the subject of spying - and the idea of a French twist on the subject sounds interesting - the movie will keep you interested reasonably enough.
