I saw this one ages ago but never thought about making a post about it.
But well, it deserves one for sure!
In the 60’s some agent named James Bond (you may have heard about him ;-)) started a landslide of Spy movies.
In a lot of countries, they started their own spy movies, more or less successful.
This one is quite special….for sure. And a perfect example to have some really great ingredients but to FAIL big time in the end (especially in terms of scenes we would like to see).
(click to enlarge)
And here are the scenes:
(it wasn’t welcome on Youtube, which is quite funny/ironic as this movie is stealing music and whole scenes from other movies :lol:)
Ok, easy Siggi, calm down…..don’t get….too angry…..easy…….
OH MY GOD! What are these morons doing? …….. Breathe…..
The wasted potential on this one is …quite…GIGANTIC!
Let’s start at the beginning. You have the villain and a henchwoman. Unlike in Thunderball the henchwoman here actually gets into scuba gear, into a sexy black rubber wetsuit.
Ok, she is not as hot as Fiona Volpe….but…..that is nearly impossible to manage anyhow 😉
But what happens then? They go into the water….. and then…..they show up at some underwater base in wet wetsuits. No diving scene with her! A real shame.
She looks quite sexy in her wetsuit, even in black and white. Sadly most of us here don’t understand what they are talking about.
That henchwoman gets assigned to seduce and kill the “Bond” of this movie but gets killed in the end, very much like Fiona Volpe in Thunderball. They were really “inspired” by that one 😆
Then we have a hot good frogwoman who fires with some weird gun (air pistol?!? Oh boy…..) at the evil henchman. She is seen in full gear….so, I think we will see her diving!
Well…..actually….no! WHAT? WHY?!?! She gets into all that gear…and her wetsuit doesn’t even get wet (from the outside at least).
I’m really angry at this moment at the movie….and now it gets really weird.
There is a scuba fight going on between the hero and one evil diver that is COPIED completely out of this movie/scene (which I cut out here):
And now they did not remake it, it is the SAME scene!!!! They just copied (parts of) the underwater fight from the other movie into this one!
And seemingly no one had big issues with it as this version still exists like that.
But’s that not all. They even use a lot of the Thunderball soundtrack that they just use in their movie.
The usage of James Bond music in other movies isn’t completely new to me as I saw for example a Mexican movie with a lot of Bond music from the ’60s.
But using whole scenes….that is…stealing….on a whole new level 😆
It drives me crazy that the whole movie has two frogwomen in rubber that are never seen in the water at all! How great would it be if the good frogwoman would dive and then stumble upon the evil henchwoman! We could have had a great scuba fight…but no, not even anything close to that.
But well, in the end….we have two women in great vintage scuba gear….and that is something for sure! 🙂
But still ….I’m getting angry at this movie… 😆
Wanna know the title of this movie?
What do you think about these scenes?
