If you are the lover of Austin Powers, you must see this!!!
20 March 2000 | by scottbaiowulfSee all my reviews

Mihashi Tatsuya maked 3 of the Kokusai himitsu keisatsu films but the firsts is best!

When I was in school I saw over and over, and all that year I want to give of the karate chops and "snag" with the girls like as in the movie! I also try to maked the gadgets and almost burn my house!

It is a lot like James Bond but more funny. The movie is so popular that America made another one of it, starring Woodsy Allen!!!
