James Coburn stars as super-spy Derek Flint in this action comedy which takes the tongue-in-cheek wit of the James Bond series and shifts it into high gear. Flint is an ultra-sophisticated operative of international intelligence agency Z.O.W.I.E. He's a master of martial arts, electronic gadgetry (his cigarette lighter can perform 83 special functions), languages both human and animal (he can communicate with dolphins in a pinch), and even gives ballet lessons to the dancers of the Bolshoi. So when his fellow agents begin dropping like flies, Z.O.W.I.E. assigns Flint the task of finding… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The gimmickry congeals."
‑ , TIME Magazine
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"The plot is the usual hokum and Edward Mulhare isn't really eccentric enough to compete in the villainy stakes, but Coburn is plainly enjoying himself so much, and the trimmings are so stylish, that it's impossible not to enjoy."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"The best of the spy-spoof bunch ... a hyper-kitschy and entertaining time capsule starring James Coburn as a Bond surrogate played so straight you could shave with him."
‑ Mark Bourne, DVDJournal.com
"Bright spy spoof."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"[A] dazzling, action-jammed swashbuckling spoof."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"To the extent that Our Man Flint works, it does so due to its tossed-off wit...and the sheer oddity of Coburn, the toothy, gangly character actor who nevertheless charms his way into stardom here with laid-back cool. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"The script is loaded with holes and the direction is tired, but the film is still one of the better Bond spoofs."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The best of the pre-Austin Powers spy spoofs, with sharp writing and plenty of Bond allusions."
‑ James Plath, Reel.com
"Austin Powers has little on this Sixties spy spoof."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"It becomes a parade of nonsense, a steal on the comic strips."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"Groovy, baby."
‑ , Film4
"Coasts along on two things: Coburn's incredible charm, and the dazzlement of a film that plays like it was built from the ground up to capture everything aesthetically and socially that defined 1965."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Dated now, but so cool back in early James Bond era"
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Pretty neat spy spoof."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
