The Doll Squad

1973

All-female squad of CIA assassins is tasked to take out a megalomaniac who wants to spread bubonic plague.

Sounds great, doesn't it? Well, it isn't. A slow plodding effort, and since Mikels was trying to break into 'legit' film here, there isn't enough camp or schlock or nudity to break the tedium. For a PG-rated film, it is rather nasty, though. The only really noteworthy thing about this film is that it was supposedly the inspiration for Charlie's Angels, as well as the Deadly Vipers in Kill Bill.

On the plus side, Francine York is pretty good as the leader of the Doll Squad, and Nicholas Carras' score is a fantastically ripe slice of 70s funkiness. Other than that, really only for fans of Mikels, who know what they're getting into.
