Okay in a pinch
The UK title of this movie is `Die Slowly, You'll Enjoy It More,' a phrase uttered several times during the course of this run-of-the-mill adventure. It's not a very comforting notion and the weak sentiment reflects the bland happenings on display. What saves this film from being a complete waste of time is a cast of recognizable faces and a nice easy listening score by Gianni Marchetti.
Lex `Tarzan' Barker is Bob Urban AKA Mr. Dynamite, a German BND agent. Self-assured to the point of parody, Urban has the capacity to escape from even the most unlikely scenarios. No matter how many armed men may surround him, Urban can fight his way to freedom. Either he's some sort of superman or henchman help has reached absurdly low levels. Barker is a likable leading man however and his other spy flicks like Victim Five (64) and Spy Against the World (66) are worth checking out.
