OSS 117: Lost in Rio (2009)

OSS 117: Lost in Rio (2009)

Directed by: Michel Hazanavicius

Starring: Jean Dujardin, Louise Monot, Rüdiger Vogler

As is often the case, this sequel isn’t nearly as good as OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies, but it’s still pretty good. I think it’s mostly because they made de le Bath more apologetic for his horrible attitude. Terrible people are much funnier when they don’t realize how terrible they are.

France’s top agent is sent on another mission, this time to Rio to stop a Nazi from blackmailing the whole government. Also, the Nazi employs luchadores as his henchmen. I really shouldn’t have to say any more here.

Just like the first one, I laughed my ass off at Lost in Rio. They did a lot more stupid 60’s movie tricks in this one, and like I said, the character isn’t quite as unrepentantly egotistic, but there’s still a lot of good stuff in there, and it’s still definitely a good parody of the 60’s Bond movie type.
