Behind the seemingly normal doors of a mansion resides Sumuru who with her army of women is hell bent on taking over the world by eliminating those in power and replacing them with one of their own. But the British Government are aware that something is going on, calling in a favour to use American agents Tommy Carter (Frankie Avalon) and Nick West (George Nader) to try and get to the root of the problem. Using their charms they set about turning some of Sumuru's women against her.

Before sitting down to watch "The Million Eyes of Sumuru" I didn't know what to expect, yes I had seen the low rating it had on another popular movie site but sometimes those low ranking movies can be just as entertaining for being bad. Unfortunately this is not only deserving of the low rating it gets but it isn't one which is entertaining for being bad. Nope all that "The Million Eyes of Sumuru" is is one big mistake from the word go.

Now I am struggling to work out whether they wanted to make an intentionally bad movie or it just happened but it is the outcome. From Shirley Eaton ripping through the scenery with her over the top performance to the hilarity of Frankie Avalon and George Nader playing a couple of agents whose weapon seems to be their lethal charm and their poor wise cracks. None of it is any good and that is when you want something more which you don't get because the whole secret agent thing combined with female world domination is incredibly weak and uninteresting.

What this all boils down to is that "The Million Eyes of Sumuru" is one of those bad 60s movies which fly through the point of being enjoyable for being bad and hits the point of being really bad. Trying to find anything in "The Million Eyes of Sumuru" noteworthy is a hard task and about the only positive I can say is that at least the image quality is good although maybe that isn't such a good thing in hindsight.
