In Like Flint

PLOT:

Flint is again called out of retirement when his old boss finds that he seems to have missed three minutes while golfing with the president. Flint finds that the president has been replaced by an actor (Flint’s line [with a wistful look] is “An Actor as President?”) Flint finds that a group of women have banded together to take over the world through subliminal brainwashing in beauty salons they own.

What people are saying:

“Although the film crawls with dime-store beauties, there is a noticeable lack of sexiness in it. Women bent on being tyrants evidently haven’t much time for anything else” 3 stars

“…tries to top its predecessor by sending übermensch Derek Flint to Moscow, outer space, and the Isle of Uppity Brassiere Models … sloppy pacing, shoddy production values, and Lee J. Cobb looking like he’s planning a stern call to his agent.” 2 1/2 stars

“Awesome, super spy and Man of Mystery joins forces with an army of super-hot, ’60s, bikini-clad women (who plan to take over the world with a brain-washing hairdrier) to foil a diabolical plot to take over/destroy the world. Yeah … who wouldn’t like this movie? The movie was almost as good as the Austin Powers spoofs of the Super Spy.” 4 stars

“Basically another in the endless series of Bond-knockoffs of the late 60’s, the second Flynt movie (for some reason I keep missing the first one) is fun enough as a semi-parody. It’s nowhere nearly as offensive/dumb as the Matt Helm stuff. Coburn makes a decent superman spy, although his lanky physique makes him look rather ungainly in the fight sequences (only Ted Danson looks more awkward). It’s your basic Cold War type movie with some women who want to rule the world (and *oh the humanity* are betrayed by the military man they put their trust in, played by a fiendish Steve Inhat) tossed in.” 3 stars

“Derek Flint is back, bashing more heads, wooing more lovely ladies, and thwarting more evil. This time, he’s up against an impostor in the government, a rogue military man, and an army of beautiful woman bent on world domination. Is the super cool master of kung-fu up to the challenge? Do you really have to ask? Wild antics, crazy music, and a bevy a beautiful women. They could have kept these movies going for years. But, unfortunately, this was the last (excluding the TV pilot).” 4 1/2 stars
