Aces Go Places - Our Man from Bond Street (1984)

The 2nd sequel to the 1982 action comedy Aces Go Places takes a step up in class as Tsui Hark takes the director's chair. This clever spoof of the James Bond films features a fake Queen of England and an evil James Bond look-a-like with villains Odd Job [a look-a-like] and the real Jaws, played by Richard Kiel, thrown in for laughs. Scenario moves some of the action to Paris, but still follows the formula of the first 2 films. The special effects take a step up in class but are still quite hokey. This one didn't annoy me as much as the first sequel.
