Movie Info

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.

The gimmickry congeals.

[A] dazzling, action-jammed swashbuckling spoof.

It becomes a parade of nonsense, a steal on the comic strips.

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]

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.

The script is loaded with holes and the direction is tired, but the film is still one of the better Bond spoofs.

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.

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.

The best of the pre-Austin Powers spy spoofs, with sharp writing and plenty of Bond allusions.

Dated now, but so cool back in early James Bond era

Bright spy spoof.

Austin Powers has little on this Sixties spy spoof.

...may look dated in its gaudy, mod fashions and architecture, its swinging sixties lifestyle, and its chintzy special effects, but that's its charm.

Audience Reviews for Our Man Flint

One interesting element here is that while initially intended as an over-the-top sendup of the ever popular Bond films of the time, that the Bond films themselves became so much like the spoofs that in retrospect both seem indistinguishable anymore.
James Coburn obviously loved the chance at playing the cooler-than-cool (ice cold) uberman, Derek Flint, and its in his relishing the part that the most fun is had here. Lotsa hot babes (mainly as background eye candy) and imaginary gadgets (that still haven't been invented) abound. Its so good ... that it could count as a Bond film (sorry Cubby).

Many people point to this as one of the best spy movies of the 60s along with 007, but I wasn't that impressed with it. The style is more interesting than a Bond movie, but I didn't care for Coburn's character, he seemed too flawless. Overall it's okay, though, especially if you love spy movies.

A classic of the spy-genre, in its all-out parody glory. Age has only added a new sheen of humor, as we guffaw at the retro aura (the kung-fu grips, the 1960's womanizing, go-go dancing, and ridiculous faux-buddhist upper-class chicness.
Our Man Flint is an essential entry in the genre of parody, and actually manages to stand on its own without knowledge of what it is trying to parody in a way that the more recent (and less sophisticated) Austin Powers has managed to do. Yet where Austin Powers is slapstick hilarity, Our Man Flint is buffoonishly mock-serious.... a parody style that fits the spy-film genre far more comfortably and more satisfyingly... and has aged remarkably well for a highly topical parody.

VERY much a product of its time but taken on those terms an enjoyable spoof of Bond films. Dig those crazy outfits and eye-popping hairstyles!
