Storyline

Spanish/Italian made European James Bond style spy thriller. When a professor's powerful invention, a molecular disintegration weapon is stolen, it's up to super cool agent 077 Mike Murphy to retrieve the dangerous tool and take care of the potential evildoers. Filled with fights, car chases, gadgetry and beautiful women, this spy adventure helped create an action/spy mini-genre craze in Europe in the mid 1960's along with the first three James Bond films. Written by Science Musings

Primo Bond rip-off
16 January 2000 | by JohnSealSee all my reviews

This is a wonderful example of the Super Spy genre, where a secret agent must reclaim a dangerous 'invisibility ray' from a gang of criminal masterminds. Everything you want is here: beautiful Continental women, outrageous cars, spy gadgets, and fistfights galore (not to mention a rather uncomfortable looking belt tightening sequence). Films like this were once staples of late night TV, and now thanks to AMC's more adventurous programming policy we can see them again, widescreen to boot. Recommended.
