Dangerous criminal Lemmy Caution (Eddie Constantine) has just escaped an American prison and has made it over to France, where his first mission is ... to raid a gambling boat run by crooked Govas (Michel Nastorg), shoot him, and spring free kidnap victim Miranda (Claude Borelli), a rich but slightly clueless heiress who didn't even know she'd been kidnapped yet. After Lemmy has dropped Miranda off at her hotel again though he's lured into the den of crime kingpin Siegella (Grégoire Aslan) by charming Constance (Colette Deréal). Now Siegella was Govas' boss, and he isn't too happy that Lemmy has spoiled his kidnap scheme, but Lemmy convinces him that they're actually on the same side, they both want to kidnap Miranda, and if they work together, using Lemmy's natural charms and Siegella's manpower, they could easily get their hands on the girl ... but the girl gives them the slip and Lemmy only eventually catches up with her at a fashion show in Paris. He charms himself into her confidence, and before long they're an item and he persuades her to let him take her on a trip to the countrym, to a hotel conveniently peopled with Siegella's gang. However, Lemmy finds another source of resistance in the gang around Dora (Jacqueline Pierreux), who's fiercely loyal to the deceased Govas, and who want to have revenge for his death - and Lemmy persuades them to work with him and against Siegella.

Once in the country, despite the best of preparations, none of Lemmy's plans work out, Miranda is kidnapped by Siegella and gang who have somehow dropped him out of the picture, and Dora's gang gets eradicated. However, before her demise Dora has somehow gotten her hands on a briefcase containing evidence against Siegella that could send him, who has always maintained the facade of a legitimate businessman, to prison for life, a briefcase Lemmy now uses as bargaining chip. But then Lemmy sees to it to get himself arrested ... as he really isn't a hardened criminal at all but an American superspy, and he and both American and French authorities want to get their hands on Siegella. So he has Siegella's gang spring him from the authorities, in an attempt to that way lead the police to the gang's hideout - and here's where things start to go horribly wrong ...

 

Of course, This Man is Dangerous, second in the Lemmy Caution series, isn't a particularly great movie that has set out to reinvent the genre, quite the contrary, it stays firmly within genre territory and tells a story that's a bit over-convoluted and not always 100% logical - and it's also lots of fun, with Eddie Constantine being at his charming and self-ironic best, lovely ladies, colourful villains, all packed into a fast-paced narrative that's light-footedly directed and leaves little time to fully figure it out. Not the reinvention of the wheel perhaps, but good entertainment for sure.
