If only the film had as much sparkle as Jo Walker's spangly silver polo neck shirt.
While sightseeing in Bangkok, a young American woman, Phyllis Leighton (Hansi Linder), is captured by thugs who ship her to Madame Kim Soo's secret island where abducted girls are drugged and forced into prostitution. The girl's mother contacts Captain Tom Rowland (Brad Harris), who is in Thailand at a police conference; he teams up with private detective Jo Walker (Tony Kendall) to try and find the missing woman.
Three Golden Serpents is the sixth of the seven Kommissar X movies; coming at the end of the swinging sixties, it's a little trashier than the earlier films, dealing as it does with the sleazy subject of an Asian sex-ring, and even delivers some gratuitous female nudity (rather than the scantily clad beauties of the earlier entries in the series). But as entertaining as this sounds, the film is actually a fairly dull affair, with a plodding plot that goes nowhere slowly, and only one half-decent shootout to keep the viewer awake (the gun-fight ending with Walker attaching a missile launcher to the end of his pistol!).
