"I just want to stop any Brad Harris fans from potentially wasting their money on this dreadful dvd. The picture quality on all of the films is awful. Stick with your bootleg videos or foreign language copies. And as for that cover..."

"Seeing these film in this condition, I wondered which film could survive this treatment and still be considered "good" in some way.
These films are better than they are shown here. It could be, however, that the best of them is still the one which is not in thís collection, which was called "drei grüne Hunde" in Germany and which I saw at the Cinema Paradiso in Lugano when I was fifteen and totally loved. Cinema Paradiso in Lugano in the late sixties was however something very special - it cannot get more romantic than that - and maybe all films I saw there gave a better impression than they deserved."
Entertaining but disapointing

"A collection that is not complete(3 out of 7 movies)including the first
3 films made in 1965-66 (the last one was made in 1971)
The "commissioner x "adventures are pure entertainment,007 style parodies,
starring handsome italian actor Tony Kendall.
With the assistance of former muscleman actor Brad Harris,they make an
explosive,entertaining team,in explosive,entertaining films.
The picture quality ,unfortunatly,is not colorful on this dvd.
Excellent Sixties Euro Spy Flicks

"Retromedia has released 3 of the popular Kommissar X films based on the novel by Bert F. Island. The first two are directed by Frank Kramer (Gianfranco Parolini) who also directed the Sabata trilogy of Spaghetti Westerns in the late sixties. The films involve two characters :Joe Walker played with playboy arrogance by Tony Kendall and Tom Rowland played by Euro stalwart Brad Harris who also choreographed the action scenes in two of the films. All of them have the Bondian mix of beautiful women, outlandish set pieces and megalomaniac villains. My favorite of the bunch is 'SO DARLING SO DEADLY', a tight,fast moving piece of sixties escapism which doesn't let you catch a breather from beginning to end. It has all the usual ingredients and like another spy film of the same year 'A TARGET FOR KILLING' it has not one but a half dozen lethal ladies brandishing machine guns and leather whips to torture their captives. The third film 'DEATH IS NIMBLE' also stars another euro star Dan Vadis who is a master of killer karate moves and the face off between Vadis and Harris at the climax is alone worth the price of the disc. All three are full screen versons but 'DEATH IS NIMBLE' has the worst wear with some faded color spots and missing frames at reel changes. But then again, where are you going to view these films unless you have inferior bootleg copies over the years. All in all, a nice package for Spy fans until the definitive releases come along."
