Action-packed spy / war / spaghetti western / comedy / fantasy / gore movie
The easiest criticism to make against "The Order of the Black Eagle" would be to say that it is cheesy. However, it would also be an invalid criticism. This movie features a baboon driving a tank (!) and blowing up the bad guys - how seriously do you suppose it takes itself? It starts as a James Bond knockoff (complete with a scene where the hero gets his neat new gadgets from an Asian version of Q), then it turns into a modern spaghetti Western, with a team of mercenaries assembled to help the hero, and it ends as an all-out war movie as the good guys attack the enemy base (where Neo-Nazis plan to resurrect Hitler!) and blow up everyone and everything in sight. When you think the explosions are over, there are even more explosions, and then some more. The last 30 minutes are non-stop action. Despite the extremely high body count (including one beheading), the general tone somehow stays lighthearted. The blonde female agent that the hero initially teams up with is nothing special, but the brunette female commando he meets later on is a knockout. I might try to track down the other Duncan Jax film now. **1/2 out of 4.
