Kiss Kiss...Bang Bang is not a dramatization of Pauline Kael's similarly titled collection of movie reviews. It is instead one of the glut of European-produced spy films which flooded the 1960s marketplace in the wake of the James Bond craze. This Spanish-made effort stars Giuliano Gemma and George Martin as secret agents involved with the blocking of selling secrets to the Enemy. The good guys are in the British Secret Service, the bad guys are those unidentified Slavic-accented types indigenous to films of this nature. Nothing new here, but Kiss Kiss...Bang Bang, directed by action-flick perennial Duccio Tessari, did manage to get good bookings thanks to the Bond-generated fascination with gimmick-and-gadget-laden espionage agents.
