Tough guy Henry Silva gives what might be his funniest performance as the bumbling spy, Hank Norris, and in one memorable and surprisingly self-aware scene he laughs himself silly watching cartoons while torturing the hapless Perry.

Where Matchless differs from other spoof agent movies is in its satirical content which, while not exactly barbed, at least provides some wry smiles.
