This guy is good with explosives

"During World War II, Polish solders fought throughout Europe. "Agent #1" (1972) is the story of a half-Russian/half-Polish man stationed in Greece on a special mission to monitor activities of Nazi and Italian forces and destroy any targets that could be a threat to the allies. Fluent at several languages, he is the perfect man for the job.
Our hero, code named Agent #1, is good with explosives. We see him in action blowing up boats and always on the run from the Germans. Although he does not act alone on his missions, because he is so successful, he gets most of the credit for his groups exploits. The action and suspense builds as the film progresses.
What makes this movie different from other World War II films is its Greek venue. Some of the scenes have ancient Greek structures in the background, giving them an eerie look. If you enjoy action/war movies, "Agent #1" is sure to entertain you and provide a story that is a bit different.
