A crazy 007 spin-off, which steals relatives and actors to parody the original series
If the name Connery brings to mind an irresistible man who sometimes goes by the name… “Bond, James Bond”, you’ve very nearly hit the bull’s-eye. However, the Connery in question is in fact Sean’s younger brother, sporting a little more facial hair and a lot less luck. This alone should be reason enough for you to suspect the intention not just to emulate but to strongly parody. Indeed, almost every actor in OK Connery has already crossed paths with the real 007: from Adolfo Celi (the boss of SPECTRE in Thunderball) to Daniela Bianchi (the head of the Soviet intelligence agency in From Russia with Love), to name the most important. The film serves as a platform upon which to exhibit all the characteristics of the original series (the one starring the older brother): exotic locations, beautiful women incapable of resisting the temptation of being seduced, really evil bad guys, an elaborate array of technological gadgets (here good old hypnosis works, as well). If you take it too seriously, it’ll be no fun at all.
Neil Connery, a secret agent with excellent references and the power to hypnotise, investigates the murder of a colleague and finds himself having to stop criminal organisation Thanatos, intent on holding the world to ransom with a giant magnet.
