Storyline

From Odessa Filmworks, the award winning team that brought the world Harry Knuckles and the Treasure of the Aztec Mummy and rewrote the gospel of Canadian filmmaking with Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter comes a new knuckle-dusting adventure starring everyone's favourite super spy. A valuable necklace has gone missing, and Harry Knuckles, AKA Special Agent Spanish Fly, is on the case. But getting his hirsute hands on the prize isn't going to be easy for the diminutive dynamo. There's more to this case than meets the eye. Armed with a lethal arsenal of kung-fu moves, a hair-trigger temper, a fistful of moxie and a seemingly endless supply of potassium-rich bananas, Harry's ready to knuckle up against any and all comers. Back to back with his loyal friend, famed Mexican wrestler El Santos, Harry goes toe to toe with the hinterland horror of the Bionic Bigfoot and an army of interlopers. Can even Special Agent Spanish Fly survive the Zen onslaught of a shadow warrior from the land of the ... Written by Ian Driscoll

A great film for a small amount of money
31 October 2004 | by CthonianSee all my reviews

The film itself was an action adventure spy spoof-a-rama filmed in and around Ottawa for a rather shoe string budget of around 40000CAD over the course of two years. Noticeable when, the female lead, Cassie Nova (played by Nancy Riehle), has a scene that I imagine was filmed the summer after the rest of her scenes. Line is more or less: 'There's Cassie! Why did she change her hair?' 'There's no time for that now, let's go!' ;). Generally, this film was fun and goofy, with the plot revolving around the titular necklace, stolen from the Museum of Nature by a bionic Bigfoot (Josh Grace in a pretty awesome costume, I must say). Harry is asked by two researchers to find the necklace, but do they have ulterior motives? The film is overtaken by a horde of baddies that try and keep Harry from his goal, with punch-ups, sword fights and pilfering. He eventually, with the help of his trusted friend Santo, the world famous masked wrestler, finds out the truth behind the necklace, and Bigfoot and the mysterious figure that has been plaguing him with these attacks, his own evil twin!

It was an extremely fun film to watch, and I hope that they do well with it. I do have a couple of quibbles, but nothing heart stopping. For instance, I found that there were just maybe one too many fight scenes (the film is hours). The scene with Virtual Girl didn't seem to gel with rest of the film, perhaps it was part of a greater subplot that was cut and should have been left on the floor, but I'm not any worse off for seeing it ;). Also, the sound was a bit off. The soundtrack was overpowering the actors from time to time, and I missed some plot points as I couldn't understand what they were saying.

All in all a very good film for very little money!
