FBI-agent Nick Carter (Eddie Constantine) travels to the French Côte d'Azur to help out an old scientist friend of his, professor Formentaire (Jean-Paul Moulinot), but even on his way there, he is shot at, and once he has arrived he finds out why: Formentaire has invented a flying disk that can take shoot down airplanes via remote control and always come back to home base - a super weapon back then. Unsurprisingly, enemy agents want the weapon ... and wouldn't you know it, the professor is killed soon. It doesn't take Carter long to find out that the professor's own slacker grandson (Charles Belmont) is behind Formentaire's death, and a sleazy barowner (Paul Frankeur) is also somehow involved. But that doesn't convince Carter, as a slacker and a barowner are hardly interested in a superweapon of this scale. So after the professor's death, Carter tries numerous poys to lure the real baddie out into the open: Li Hang (Valéry Inkijinoff) an evil oriental working for even more evil foreign powers. Li Hang does the best to steal the professor's superweapon, and when he fails and fails again, he wants to throw bombs onto the professor's lab to destroy it - but Carter just launches the disk to destroy the bomber plane instead. However, to wipe out Li Hang's gang once and for all, Carter has to first fake his own death, then lure the Li Hang's gang to a warehouse where they are all defeated in an extended shootout.

And in the end, Carter gets the girl, the professor's granddaughter (Daphné Dayle), who has featured more or less prominently in the preceding story.

 

Somehow, this is a film to make you go "hmmm". On one hand, it's one of the better Eurospy movies - low budget European espionage films made in the wake of the success of the James Bond-series -, as it keeps its camp content to a minimum, features a relatively plausible plot, and the film doesn't try to be more than the budget allows. On the other hand though, when it comes to pure entertainment value, the film is no match to Eddie Constantine's earlier Lemmy Caution-series (which the James Bond-series was partly based on, actually), and Eddie Constantine's rather restrained performance is not half as much fun as when he lets it all hang out.

Still, the film is ok by genre standards, just by no means a must-see.
