I have been a bit slack in my reviews of ‘world’ spy movies this year – long work days, and extended travel time have seen to that (giving me more time to read, and less to watch films). But there are many great websites out there that look at the more obscure Bond influenced spy films from around the world.
Recently I stumbled upon the fantastic blog, House of Ninja Dixon. Here are a few of the tasty spy treats he has served up recently.
• Firstly Bond 303 which stars Jeetendra in this Bollywood Bond ripoff – if the title doesn’t give that tidbit away! I have a copy of this tucked away somewhere, but have never taken the time to watch it. Maybe it’s time!
• Next there’s the Thai spy spoof Operation Black Panther starring Sombat Methanee
• Then the harshly treated Eurospy classic Operation Kid Brother starring Neil Connery.
• Shaw Brothers Interpol 009.
• Then the curious James Band 007, which features R2D2 and C3PO?
Why not head over and have a look around?
