In Like Flint (1967)

In Like Flint (1967), directed by Gordon Douglas.

The second and last of the Coburn "Flint" films.

Women, tired of being Pleasure Units in the first movie, plot to take over the world this time. Flint thinks this is absurd and, since dominating women is one of his super-powers, puts a quick end to the proto-feminist insurrection.

More of the same, bigger budget and looking glossier and more expensive. More chasing and fighting and Jerry Goldsmith amps up his fun musical score. Some location shooting in Jamaica.

If you just want more, it's fine. But the joke is only funny once. We could use something new and don't get it. 1h54m is a bit long for this and the real action doesn't start until about 40m.

Available on Blu-ray from Twilight Time. The image looks a bit better than the previous film. The same two film scholars provide another excited and wide-ranging commentary on the 60s and spy films in general. Isolated score.
