Mister Freedom (John Abbey), the all American superhero in a red, white and blue football uniform, is called to Freedom headquarters, where his boss Doctor Freedom (Donald Pleasence) informs him about the (alleged) spread of Communism in France, and since the French superhero Captain Formidable (Yves Montand in a mini-role) has just been killed by baddie Red Chinaman, it falls upon Mister Freedom to preserve the Freedom in France - or at least what the Americans understand as freedom, since Mister Freedom is a racist, misogynist and egomaniac bastard who tries to bluntly force his ideas of freedom on the French, and when somebody opposes him - even if its Jesus (Sami Frey) -, he lets his fists or his guns do the talking.

Soon enough all of France is in an uproar against the Freedom Movement, so eventually, Mister Freedom sees himself forced (?) to bomb 50 present of the country to Kingdom Come, just to teach these Frenchies a lesson and make them see how important his vision of freedom is ... as a result, everyone turns against him, even his French liasion officer and girlfriend Marie-Madeleine (Delphine Seyrig), and the whole thing ends with his headquarters being destroyed and his army slaughtered, and as retaliation, Mister Freedom has the country nuked ...


As a satire on American Imperialism, this film is just a tad too blunt and too self-assured while not being all that good in delivering its subtler tones and comic moments - but that said, many of the film's ideas like the US-embassy being just a supermarket are nothing short of great (even if even this idea gets a bit overstrained in the course of events).

What makes the film remarkable though is that while it was conceived as a Cold-War-satire, it hasn#t lost any of its relevance nowadays, when the USA under George W.Bush has started an unprovoked war against Iraq and now wonders why it's so hard for the Iraqis to just respect their ideas of freedom ... To a great extent, the film looks like an exact satire on the Iraq war, only done 24 years earlier. Maybe someone should have showed the Bush administration the film before they made their big mistake ...
