Sarah Boslaugh PopMatters ...worse-than-average spy flick starring muscleman Gordon Scott as Bart Fargo (one for the all-name team, at any rate), who is trying to get back one of those contrary-to-the-laws-of-physics death rays that seemed to pop up frequently in 1960s films. Rated: 3/10 Mar 27, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

anthony w There was supposed to be a Death Ray I'm this spy movie? Oh wait last 3 minutes. There it is. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member As seen on "Mystery Science Theater 3000." How else could I dissuade you? Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member What kind of a name is Bart Fargo for a secret agent? He wasn't really a good one at least. Along with the spy movie craze came this little film. Mostly the same as the others, but with a death ray that doesn't seem to do much except burn things a little. Watch the Mystery Science Theater version. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I just barely made it through this one. Danger!! Death Ray is about as blatant a James Bond rip-off as I can think of, and that doesn't help it in any way. It's just horrible, and there's nothing really redeemable about it. The actors are totally hamming it up and most of them don't fit their parts at all. The $2 special effects are nothing to write home about either. The submarine scene looks like it was shot in someone's swimming pool with a couple of small models. It's mind-boggling how atrocious everything about it is. Thank goodness for the folks at Mystery Science Theater 3000 for making this one at least watchable. Otherwise, it's probably a good idea just to skip it altogether. Trust me on this. You'll thank me later. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Decent spy movie with some fun moments and inspiring ideas, but I haven't seen a lot of spy movies. There are a lot of bad things to this film though, but it's a enjoyable watch on MST3K. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Danger!! Ridiculously slow-moving and pointless plot! (A death ray will be involved at the beginning and end, but nowhere in the middle.) Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
