Plot Summary Edit
WARNING: This section contains spoilers. If you do not want to find out what happens, skip to the next section.
During the opening titles, a recap reveals that Com 50 has uncovered the inner-workings of a terrorist organization known as Cal Pada. Their leader, Shriff Aha, vows to destroy the world unless their demands are met.
The film opens with Com 50 getting a mission brief from his commander, who is informing him that Cal Pada has set up a headquarters in the French Alps. Com 50 accepts his mission and takes a fighter jet to France. Near the base, an enemy fighter jet shoots Com 50's jet out of the air, though Com 50 manages to parachute down to the ground, landing at the Newland Hotel.
Inside the hotel, he spends the night, but almost gets killed by the hotel's clerk, who is a Cal Pada assassin in disguise. After killing the assassin, Com 50 teleports away to 007, whom he rudely encounters. Com 50 insists that they need to work together, but 007 wants to finish the job alone. After some lamenting, 007 lets Com 50 tag along, as long as he follows 007's orders. Com 50 agrees.
Inside the base, Com 50 is assigned to hack a missile silo while 007 heads out the take out Shriff Aha. However, henchman Boris catches 007 and takes him to the interrogation room. Despite Shriff Aha's beatings, 007 does not talk. Com 50, concerned about 007, heads off after him. He eventually frees 007 and they sneak away.
Elsewhere in the base, Shriff Aha and Boris ambush Com 50 and 007, chasing them away towards a lab. Inside the lab, Com 50 devises a plan: make some of Cal Pada's nuclear weapons and use them to blow up the base. After making the bomb, they stow it away in the hacked computer, but are attacked by a ninja. The ninja is easily killed and they rush off.
At the entrance to the base, they are stopped by Shriff Aha and Boris, whom they fight. They take down the villains, but don't have enough time to escape the base. Com 50 saves 007 and himself by teleporting them back to CIA headquarters. 007 congratulations Com 50 on a job well done.
Production History Edit
Just like the previous two Com 50 movies, this film was made on the fly with no script and only a vague idea of where to go. However, a few scenes were planned prior to filming, such as the fighter jet sequence and the presence of Shriff Aha.
Unlike the other two films, this film was shot over multiple days, as the hotel scenes, the airplane sequence, and the scenes with 007 were all filmed at vastly different times. Most of the story elements, however, were just based from Cal Pada from the previous films. After some time editing the footage, this film was released on July 29, 2004 as part of the Com 50 Collection DVD set.
On July 20, 2012, as part of the "From the Vaults" collection, this film was re-released as an entirely new cut that geared the style towards Com 50 and Com 50-3: Raid on Central Island. It features an original soundtrack, enhanced special effects, new sound effects, and more.
Audience Reaction Edit
In its original release, it was well-received by those that had been in the film. However, in its re-release, the film got almost no attention. This led to the cancellation of the re-release of Com 50-3: Raid on Central Island.
- Plot Hole: If Com 50 has a teleport remote that can send him anywhere in the world, why does he need to take a fighter jet to get to the Cal Pada base? Some could argue that the teleport remote has a limited range, but he uses it at the end of the film to get back to headquarters, trumping that logic.
- Continuity Error: When Com 50 is inside the fighter plane, he is wearing a helmet. However, when he lands on the ground and pulls off his parachute, the helmet is gone.
