A criminal organization led by a man named Elektra has found a serum capable of unleashing aggression. Aware of the news, the Soviet and American governments decide to join forces to stop the dangerous threat.

A cunning, elusive thief proves to be too much for the world powers in the 1960’s. Gary gets interrupted on a jewel heist as three world powers’ representatives examine a chemical that means life or death, chaos or peace. Gary sees there is something valuable, even if he doesn’t know what it is yet. He kidnaps (and sort of saves) the now dead doctor’s assistant and the case she is clinging to for the safety of the world. With agents of Electra One hot on their trail and with US and Russia trying desperately to get the formula for themselves… the two are in for one wild chase.

It was originally shot in an experimental 70mm 3D filming technique

“Jazzy score, beautiful women, good car chase in a Eurospy action flick.”
