Private eye Joe Walker (Tony Kendall) alias Kommissar X and Captain Rowland (Brad Harris) of New York homicide come to Singapore upon the request of a certain Professor Akron (Ernst Fritz Fürbringer) ... but even before they learn about their new assignment, atempts on their lives are made on the airplane, the train and waterskis (!).

Eventually though they learn that Professor Akron has invented a death ray, but now a baddie only known as Golden Dragon and his henchmen are after the Erradicon filter, the lense that turns his ray into a deathray ... and which the Professor hides inside a locket around his daughter Sybille's (Barbara Frey) neck - which is rather unfortunate since the Golden Dragon has soon kidnapped the girl to blackmail the Professor into giving his the Erradicon - not knowing that it's already within his arm's reach. What follows is a series of chases, fistfights and shootouts until Joe Walker, Captain Rowland and the Professor all also become captives of the Dragon, and after he gets the Erradicon he prepares to kill them all in various death traps ... but then Shabana (Luisa Rivelli), the Dragon's right hand girl and bait for Walker (she's a blonde so how could he resist) learns that the Dragon has killed her sister Stella (Gisela Hahn), and she spontaneously changes sides, frees everybody and helps them defeat and kill the Dragon - who has turned out to be the Professor's good friend diplomat Jonathan Taylor (Carlo Tamberlani) - and escape his secret lair which he has set on self-destruct with his dieing breath.

One of the Dragon's men though has grabbed the Erradicon and tries to make a getaway ... but the Professor has set the Erradicon on self-destruct and ... boom.

And in the end, Joe Walker alias Kommissar X makes his getaway in a helicopter with Shabana, since she ahs saved his life and in return he wants to save her from the police (after all, she was on the Dragon's payroll) ...

 

As pretty much all Kommissar X films, So Darling, So Deadly is not really a good film, and it of course pales in comparison to the James Bond series it desperately tries to mimick. But taken on its own terms, So Darling, So Deadly is wonderfully campy fun, an enjoyably silly movie full of pulp clichés like hooded villains, unnecessarily complicated torture devices and deathtraps, beautiful women in hotpants carrying guns, improbable plottwists and of course the ubiquitous death ray. And then there's of course Tony Kendall playing his role too-cool-to-be-true, Brad Harris' unique approach to acting and both of these men having a dance scene. Wow ! Of course it does help that the film doesn't take itself too seriously, and you will probably only like it if you don't take it too seriously as well - but then you might even love it !
