FBI-superman Steve (Brad Harris) is just about to marry when he's
hauled away from the altar by his superiors and shot to the Middle East in
a rocket, where he is to free the other supermen (and pathological
thieves), Martin (George Martin) and Dick (Salvatore Borghese), from
certain execution. Then it's off to the jungle of deepest Africa to find a
uranium mine before the Soviets do. However, the Soviets have a head start
and a bag full of tricks to throw at our heroes, plus they are friends
with all the native tribes. There is only one tribe sympathetic to the
supermen, Gungla's (Femi Benussi) tribe of white amazons - but that's only
because Gungla wants to marry Steve, and at one point she even tries to
drug him into submission. Anyways, somehow our heroes manage to secure the
uranium mine despite everything - but then Martin and Dick try to steal it
to sell it to the Chinese, and it takes Steve every trick in the book to
take it back from them. And then there's still Gungla to take care of ...
has to be noted up front that this wild mix of superhero, espionage and
jungle elements has been conceived as a comedy - the problem is, none of
the jokes are really funny, and of the leads, only Brad Harris tries to
put in a comedic performance (but his talent is rather limited). That's
not to say the film isn't somewhat entertaining - if for all the wrong
reasons: The antiquated jungle clichées are hilarious in their political
uncorrectness, Brad Harris trying to be funny is eye-watering, and the
basic idea of displacing three men in silly supermen-outfits in the jungle
has at least some appeal. Oh, and the amazons are hot at least.
probably something only a bad movie lover can really enjoy, but for a bad
movie lover like me that's a whole lot better than nothing.
