2.0 out of 5 stars Flint gets sloppy fast, 17 Dec 2012

This review is from: In Like Flint [1967] [DVD] (DVD)
Where Our Man Flint was the best of the American wannabe Bond spinoffs to hit the big screen in the wake of Thunderball's phenomenal box-office success, the quickly churned out sequel In Like Flint - actually rushed into production before Our Man Flint was released - is considerably less successful. In the opening half hour Coburn only has one scene, while the film strains a little too hard to be wacky and loses the straight faced charm of the original. With the exception of one excellent fight in a gym the action scenes are sloppier too. Then there's the sexism to contend with (although the notion of brainwashing the women of the world via hairdryers is ingenious), not to mention the sight of Lee J. Cobb in drag... Still, Jerry Goldsmith does have fun providing nifty variations on his themes from the first film while generally adding a more Neal Hefti tone to the proceedings.

Unlike the excellent Ultimate Flint Collection (3pc) (Ws Sen) [DVD] [1966] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC], which includes a plethora of extras and the dire 70s Canadian TV movie Our Man Flint: Dead on Target (starring Ray Danton and one of the worst hairstyles in television history as a very dull private eye), the only extra on the Region 2 PAL release is the trailer. The 2.35:1 widescreen transfers are acceptable but not outstanding.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite Austin though, 18 July 2007
By 
This review is from: In Like Flint [1967] [DVD] (DVD)
is this movie confusing to anyone else but me ?

I might have to watch it 2-4 more times before I understand this movie completely.

Or maybe I'm just stupid ?
