Our Man Flint (1966)

Twentieth Century-Fox Film
Directed by Daniel Mann
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
(DVD, Fox)

James Coburn reluctantly accepts an assignment to root out a gang of criminals with a weather machine blackmailing world leaders. Clues lead him first to Rome and then to a mysterious island where hypnotism is used to control people. Coburn uses various gadgets and an ability to go into a state of suspended animation to prevail. Colorful yet ultimately unsuccessful attempt to spoof James Bond somehow manages to be both boring and unfunny.
