What it is: Eurospy
Secret agent Super Dragon comes out of retirement to investigate a plot to poison the world with a new drug.
This movie has a rating of 1.9 on IMDB, and part of that low rating is no doubt due to the fact that it was featured on MST3K. However, I suspect that even without that factor, the movie wouldn’t have much of a reputation; it’s one of the most tepid and lifeless Eurospy movies I’ve seen for this series. The movie seems particularly short of action; it’s mostly walking around, dull conversations, tired attempts at humor, etc. The drug is the fantastic content in the movie, as well as a couple of minor gadgets. All in all, this was a particularly joyless experience.
