sorry for the mistakes!
The Doll Squad
Ted V.Mikels doesn’t miss a
hit, or doesn’t guess right one. It depends on your point of
view. We appreciate him, despite the director continues to show some
confusion in the production and a shameless passion for meaningless
This time he lead us into a story in which the protagonists are
beautiful and lethal secret agents who fight evil. And they fight in a
very creative way with incendiary cocktails and flamethrowers lighters,
not to mention very slow martial arts moves, bikini and tight suit
similar to the one of Diabolik.
Ted V.Mikels accused insistently Aaron Spelling was inspired by this
film for his well-known TV series "Charlie's Angels" and of course you
can guess who we give reason. Indeed, the basic idea is the same, a
group of supergirls who fight evil. They are beautiful, clever, and no
one can stop them.
"The Doll Squad" develops this idea as perfect B movie with surreal
moments, winking at the male audience, and with a dense series of
absurd events. Eamon O'Reilly (Michael Ansara) is a former special
agent who wants to launch a deadly virus on the world for the usual
ruthless hunger of power. He explodes in flight a Space Shuttle and
triggers the reaction of the law that with Vic Connelly (Anthony
Eisley), Senator Stockwell (John Carter) and Sabrina Kincaid (Francine
York) put together a super team at the service of the law. A leak of
security systems enables O'Reilly’s men to eliminate a couple of
agents. But the "doll squad" there is the same and consists of Maria
(Lisa Todd), Cat (Sherri Vernon), Sharon (Leigh Christian) and Lavelle
(Tura Satana). Them with thousand adventures destroy the plans of Eamon
O'Reilly until to an explosive ending, in every sense of the term, in
the very classical remote island, headquarter of the insane criminal.
Bad movie but fascinating "The Doll Squad" is a fun B movie which of
course is inspired by the spy and action movies and showing a number of
objects and clothes that would envy any fan of vintage.
After the cold commentary on the explosion images of a Shuttle, placed
right at the beginning, is soon becomes clear, where we are. And the
rest is not far behind, with subtle and very intelligent theories (see
the discussion on the pigeons) elaborate plans and a recitation without
Francine York model and actress, often Jerry Lewis’ shoulder, and
starred in several TV series, it’s a more than adequate leader of
a group that relies on explosive Tura Satana, which appears the first
time in a sexy dance in a strip club . Tura, who had previously worked
with Mikels for "The Astros Zombie", repeats almost the same character.
Certainly the cast is the best aspect of this film. Because in addition
to the two actresses there are Michael Ansara, Anthony Eisley and John
Carter, actors who have worked a lot in television series and major
motion pictures. Everyone in this movie by the ineffable Ted V.Mikels,
who behind the camera performs the task without effort, leaving all the
trash of this film, the goal to strike and conquer the audience.
