Some newly discovered radioactive metal has been hidden in the lense of a 8 mm camera and sold to a tourist in Cairo, and it's now up to agent Superseven (Roger Browne) to retrieve the camera, but of course, a gang of baddies, international armsdealers led by a certain Alex (Massimo Serato) are after the camera as well, and the first thing they do is to get a pretty girl, Faddja (Rosalba Neri) into his bed to spy him out without Superseven even noticing it. But Faddja (of course) falls in love with Superseven and gives away the baddies' little plot and he has his little revenge by giving them a handful of false clues.

Supersseven meanwhile tracks down Denise (Fabienne Dali), the woman who actually sold the camera to the tourist, and he has soon enough enlisted her to aid him in finding the man, a certain Professor Gabin (Mino Doro), but the hunt for him leads to little more than a tour past all the popular Egyptian tourist attractions and a few run-ins with Alex and his henchmen, but not to the camera.

Ultimately the Professor's trail leads to Locarno and then to Rome, where Alex' men get to him firstand kill him, but the camera it turns out is with his assistant - and somehow, Superseven gets his hands on the camera first, and substitutes the zoomlense ... just in time before the baddies can corner him led by Alex and, believe it or not, Denise, who has been working for the baddies all along. On the other hand Faddja, the girl from the beginning of the film, is still on his side, and the two of them end up in the back of a speedboat all tied up. But somehow they manage to free themselves and abandon ship just before Superseven blows up the boat and all the baddies on it, while the zoom containing the radioactive metal is still safely tucked away in his breast pocket ...

 

One of the many Italian attempts to make a James Bond-rip off (which is already suggested in the title), no better or worse than other Italian James Bond-rip offs of the era - which means it's not very good, your usual sloppily written, badly acted and somewhat underbudgeted espionage flick that totally lacks botht the scale and the (self-)irony of the original James Bond-series and thus falls rather flat on its chest.

Still, from today's point of view there is a certain nostalgia flair to this film and similar movies that makes it watchable, even amusing, after all.
