| A silly '60s secret agent caper.
Kill Me Gently, my first Kommissar X movie, is actually the fourth in the series. My unfamiliarity with the already established characters might account for some of my confusion, but I suspect that bad storytelling and crap editing are more to blame.

This silly Bond-inspired secret agent/crime caper revolves around a stash of LSD brought to Turkey by the Americans for military purposes (what they intend to do with it is anyone's guess). A gang of criminals called the Green Hounds will do anything to get their hands on the acid, leaving NYPD Captain Tom Rowland (Brad Harris) and private detective Jo Walker (Tony Kendall) to try and stop them.

The first hour of this film is so poorly strung together that it is almost impossible to follow and proves very difficult to sit through, with only the local colour and some pretty girls to keep one interested. Make it past the hour mark, however, and things do get a little better, as the action moves to a desert region known as The Valley of 1000 Hills, where the good guys do battle with the baddies, resulting in some fairly well-executed stunt sequences.

There's a fun scene in which one of our good guys (I don't remember who) is pursued over the hills, but escapes by sliding down the sandy slopes on his butt, and we also get an impressive motorcycle chase over the same undulating terrain, the bikes hurtling through valleys, up and around natural banks, and over peaks. It's an entertaining final act, although an extremely dumb closing moment involving a talking camel sums up the film as a whole: very silly, with little concern for logic.
