Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Spy Hard

Dick Steele (a.k.a. Secret Service Agent WD-40) teams with Veronique Ukrinsky (a.k.a. KGB Agent 3.14) to pursue sadistic criminal mastermind General Rancor, a man he thought he killed fifteen years ago in a helicopter explosion. Rancor, left armless by the blast, is keen for revenge. Before he destroys the world, he wants to destroy Steele. As a lure, he has strapped maverick agent Barbara Dahl - daughter of Steele's deceased love Victoria - to a missile of mass destruction set to launch in 36 hours. For her safe return, he demands the computer chip that controls his satellite so that he may control the world.

Armed with cool gadgets like Z-ray lenses and a micro-detonator, Steele rips off scenes from "Speed," "True Lies," "Pulp Fiction," and several other movies as he fumbles his way through smitten women and nebulous leads in search of the chip's inventor, Veronique's father, Professor Ukrinsky. A top secret file from Steele's driver Kabul leads him to spar with a beautiful but deadly martial arts expert, in whose weapon-laden purse he finds a condom that implicates the Coca Cabana, a presumed front for Rancor and his men. Veronique's pendant inscription leads him to the Museum of Natural History. Still no closer to his objective, and with Coleman at headquarters lambasting the Director for trusting him, Steele searches for a Russian jewellery district. This leads him to a warehouse and to the professor. Taking the chip, he stashes the professor "safely" with pint-sized agent McCluckey. But Veronique is kidnapped, sidetracking Steele to a convent to rescue her. They manage time for a hot love scene before multiple agency leaks cause McCluckey and Ukrinsky to be nabbed and taken to Rancor's evil headquarters on Kikiree Island. Here, stripped of their weapons (slingshot, tongs, ice cream scoop, kitten...) Steele and Veronique must combat the bad guys while the rocket timer ticks down.
