A pipipip project, dubbing an Italian TV capture with English and German audio tracks.


“For a while, “Argoman” seems to be aiming at encapsulating the ultimate male fantasy: Sir Reginald Hoover is so rich that he has a pool inside his beach house, so daring that he has stolen the Mona Lisa and replaced it with a fake, so successful with women that he has several to pick from when he’s in the mood for some companionship. Oh, and he also has superpowers, chief among them telekinesis. For a while this looks like a European version of the American Derek Flint films, except that Regie is not quite as smarmy as Flint. When he finally puts his yellow suit on and turns into Argoman, the film turns into a campy kid’s movie – but a sexually suggestive and often violent kid’s movie! That’s what’s strange about “Argoman” – it’s a bit too adult for kids, and a bit too kiddie for adults. In any case, there is some fun to be had here (especially from the colorful sets and the upbeat score), and arch-villainess Dominique Boschero is hot – I’d probably join her in her quest to dominate the world is she asked me! On the other hand, the scenes with the English and the French police inspectors don’t really contribute much to the movie.” [imdb]
