FBI agent Brad (Daniel Stephen) is told by his boss to investigate a money forgery operation working out of Santo Domingo to flood the market with fakes to destabilize the Dollar - and he insists on bringing good-natured crooks Steve (Steven Martin) and Sal (Sal Borgese) along for the job, as in their red and black bullet-proof costumes, they're known as the Three Supermen. In Santo Domingo, they soon meet up with their contact Diane (Gina Gas), who is to get them in touch with the forgers, but the forgers have long gotten wise to the three Supermen and have put up a nice trap for them, and take Diane captage. Of course the trap doesn't spring, but Brad is soon in a bind with the American ambassador while Steve and Sal do some sleuthing to find out the mansion the moneymaking machine is situated in. Eventually, all three Supermen storm the mansion, actually get to the machine, and remove its heart - but somehow Brad gets captured in the process. Steve and Sal celebrate having the machine's heart by hiring two prostitutes, but they're secret agents for the baddies and knock out our heroes and steal what they believe to be the heart - only to be whipped silly back home becauise Steve and Sal tricked them. Steve and Sal free Brad, and the three get a squad of pretty girls to sneak on board the baddies ship in drag to steal the rest of the moneymaking machine - successfully of course. But now the baddies hold their girl squad hostage - but led by Diane, they pretty much free themselves before the Supermen can even intervene ...

 

Three Supermen in Santo Domingo, last of eight Three Supermen movies, above all shows how out of time the concept has fallen over the years. While the original The Three Fantastic Supermen from 19 years earlier was more or less a spoof of the then current Eurospy genre as a whole, with a few hints from the then current Batman TV-show thrown in, neither were much of a thing in the 1980s anymore, and sperheroes as such were pretty much box office poison back then. Also, Italian action comedies as a whole had pretty much run their course in 1986, and the rather second rate action direction in this movie wasn't really in any position to revive the genre. With that in mind, but even with that not in mind, this movie is a bit of a mess, a slapstick superhero crime comedy with a story too simplistic to raise even an eyebrow, with story elements, costumes, and props (just look at the moneymaking machine) seeming nothing if not old-fashioned in the 1980s, and a cast that's not exactly first rate (only Sal Borgese's performance as mute Sal actually leaves some of an impression). It's amusing still mind you, just for all the wrong aspects.
