Rating: 1/5 -- Joseph Losey didn't really do frivolous. Which is probably why his attempt at spoofy pseudo-Bondery is so direly unfunny. Full Review

Losey captures with comedy the same chill of modernity beneath the Mediterranean sun that Antonioni captures with melodrama. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- I waited 20 years to see this movie, and boy was I let down! Terence Stamp was cool, though.

Rating: 48/100 -- At a running time of just under two full hours, the boredom becomes as exaggerated as the wallpaper.

Too much of it is just foolish, labored and sometimes painful camp. Full Review
New York Times
May 9, 2005
under the non-stop stream of jokes lies a bitter edge of malice, directed not only against the genre itself but against a society which trusts its politicians and its generals. Full Review

Not merely a spy spoof, based on a book and a comic strip about a femme James Bond type, the colorful production gives the horse laugh to many different film plots and styles. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Her entire appearance changes in a finger snap. She thrashes villains without missing a spiked-heeled step. Welcome to the mad, mad world of sexy, stylish intrigue as British comic strip character Modesty Blaise comes to life in this outrageous spy spoof.

Hired by the government to prevent a diamond heist, Modesty recruits her wily sidekick Willie Garvin to help her battle crafty, colorful foes on the secluded island of a suave mastermind thief. Grooving with mile-high hairdos and swinging, psychedelic wall patterns, Modesty Blaise is campy entertainment at its best.
