Typical Euro spy movie with ordinary ingredients : thrills , noisy action , fights and helicopters
4 September 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Misión en Ginebra (1967) or Target Frankie or Feuer frei auf Frankie deals with an international scientist who discovers a new fuel for outer space . Then , he is murdered ; CIA chief (Waltere Barnes) assigns a dangerous mission to two important super-spies (Erika Blanc , Mariano Vidal Molina) to hire a playboy who "just happens" to look like his famous scientist brother . Posing as his brother , a known scientific , assistant to former killed scientist , he allows himself to be captured by the opposition, in order to thwart their schemes . After many car chases and intrigue, he arranges to get away with "the secret plans". Our valiant , easy-going playboy/agent , takes on a powerful criminal organization commanded by Caldar (Tejada) and his hoodlums (Rik Battaglia , Eddi Arent, Tito Garcia , Tomas Torres) . Ordinary Euro spy movie with usual tippings : pursuits , car crashes , chases , fantastic gadgets , strange artifacts , simple helicopters and explosive women . It has some flaws and gaps , as it does tend to get a bit old , including repetitive nature of some fight scenes , but it has big fun , so it cares . Joachim Fuchsberger gives a passable acting as a brave playboy turned secret agent who takes on an criminal organization that especializes in relevant assassinations . Joachim has an easy going air about him that makes him great to see . Co-stars two Eurotrash starletts as Erika Blanc and Rosalba Neri .Along with a plethora of Spanish/American/German secondaries , usual in Spaghetti and Peplum , such as Walter Barnes , Rik Battaglia , Mariano Vidal Molina , Charles Fawcett , Oscar Pellicer , Tomas Torres, Gaspar 'Indio' González and Tito García .

It packs a cololorful and evocative cinematography in Panavisión and Eastmancolor by Victor Monreal in terrific locations from Roma, Lazio, Italy , Geneva, Canton de Genève, Switzerland and Tremp, Lérida, Catalonia, Spain . And an atmospheric musical score in the seventies style by Piero Umiliani . The motion picture was regular wriitten/produced but professionally directed by José Antonio De La Loma , and it definitively worth checking out if you are a fan of Euro spy genre . Loma was a craftsman and real creator of ¨Quinqui sub-genre¨ ,. As Jose Antonio De La Loma , in his usual botcher style , filmed the successful trilogy : ¨Perros Callejeros I , II¨ and ¨Ultimos Golpes Del Torete¨ and he even made a female version : ¨Perras Callejeras¨ . His style is pretty much urban and realistic as well in the atmosphere as in the fresh dialog and attempted to take a position in favor of outcast people . Jose Antonio De La Loma chose young and natural actors as Angel Fernandez Franco ¨Torete¨ and Bernard Seray who played their parts to the hilt , unafraid of filmmaker's unsympathetic camera and the particularity of the characters . In ¨Perros Callejeros¨ series we see their troubles growing in such streets , slums or "barrios" from Barcelona and outskirts and other coastal places and some fine locations . In these films Jose Antonio De La Loma showed the ugliness of those "barrios" , toughness and cold existence . In his youthful De La Loma worked as a teacher in the Chinese barrio of Barcelona and he lived poorness and isolation . As he hired true delinquents who used their peculiar slang and particular behaves , all of them give a certain realism to these offbeat films . ¨Tres Dias De Libertad¨ was absurdly directed by Juan Antonio De La Loma who had a long career including titles as a writer and a filmmaker in all kinds of genres , as Western : ¨Professional for a massacre¨ ,¨Texas Kid¨ ,¨Clint the solitary¨ , ¨Return of Clint¨, ¨The last Mohican¨, ¨Seven pistols for Timothy¨ , ¨Viva Carrancho¨, ¨The Boldest job in the West¨, ¨Blood at sundown¨or ¨Porque Seguir Matando¨ and Action : ¨Metralleta Stein¨ , ¨Razzia¨ , ¨Explosion¨ , Squadron: Counterforce¨or "Playing with Death" , ¨Goma 2¨ , ¨Tony Carrera¨, "Playboy to Kill" and several others
