A big s..t!
2 October 2018 | by rodrig58See all my reviews

A kind of Soviet James Bond, ridiculous at the top. Embarrassing dialogues, stupid scenes, there is the idea from any James Bond movie with a crazy guy who wants to master the world, he also has a terrible weapon with which he does some damage, but everything is done in an unskillful, inept way.
