Nicholas Drummond, the hero of this saga is a titled Brit; a James Bond clone minus the original's libido. His partner, Mike, is a female FBI agent whose masculine name is an unnecessary distraction. The plot is well known and so frequently travelled as to be a cliche in its own right. It depicts a mad scientist prepared to launch a nuclear weapon on the world in order to achieve ultimate power. Needless to say his plans are foiled by our intrepid heroes: Nicholas and Mike. The dialogue is often embarrassingly corny and clunky, full of cliches and sycophantic references to the manners and customs of the British upper class. Our hero even has his own butler. The only reason I've given it two stars is that I made it to the end.
