Synopsis
While Hong Kong and Bangkok were visited by 007 himself, Singapore had to make do with Agent Joe Walker AKA Kommissar X, an American spy-cum-detective based on a series of German pulp fictions in this mostly Italian production starring B-listers Tony Kendall (an Italian former model) and Brad Harris (US bodybuilder turned actor). The plot features a ludicrous conspiracy about the quest to acquire a deadly laser weapon, but the film has been beautifully photographed and directed on location in Singapore and Johor, as our simple-minded Western heroes blunder, leap, ogle, flirt and fight their way around the top tourist spots of the time in this intercontinental kitschy, actionpacked Eurospy flick.
