YMMV / Danger!! Death Ray

  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Many. Including:
    • The aforementioned sub and 'copter scene with its... shall we say...simple model work.
    • Scarface the hitman taking a flying leap off the balcony when lunging for Fargo.
    (Bart defeats Scarface, rips off his fake beard, and mocks his lousy ambush attempt while opening the balcony doors in his hotel room...)
    • The very last scene wherein the edit shows a crewmember's hand dropping the watch into the pool.
      • The really funny part is that whoever it is dropping the watch is wearing a hideous plaid leisure jacket. Ah, Italy in The '60s...
  • Ear Worm: Even though the film's soundtrack seems to consist of two tracks, be warned that they will be stuck in your head for days. Bup Ba Dup Ba Daa Daa!
  • Fake American:
    • Many of the cast were given American-sounding names, not only for their characters, but even for their credits (e.g., Nello Pazzafini, who played Frank, was credited as Ted Carter; and Massimo Righi, who played Al, was credited as Max Dean).
    • It fails when they credit Tullio Altamura (who played Dr. Carmichael) as the not-very-American-sounding Tor Altmeyer.
    • Averted with the hero himself, who was played by actual American and former-Tarzan Gordon Scott (though his character name was still terrible).
  • Foe Yay: At times, it seems Bart and Al have more chemistry than Bart and Whatsherface.
  • Follow the Leader: One of many, many films to try and ape the spy-craze of The '60s.
  • Narm:
    • The emergency alarm sounds like a high pitched pogo stick.
    • The final shot of a hand tossing Bart's watch to the water. This isn't in all cuts of the film, but it's in the version used in MST3K.
  • Padding: So much. Long shots of people walking down hallways, long shots of people watching people walking down hallways, lots of shots of Fargo reloading and reloading and reloading...
  • So Bad, It's Good: It's almost worth watching for the soundtrack alone.
  • Special Effects Failure: Oh my, yes; the helicopter and submarine scenes, especially. Mike and the bots utterly lose it.
    • Then there's Scarface's fake beard that makes him look like Abraham Lincoln or an Amish man. To be fair, even Bart thinks the Paper-Thin Disguise is ridiculous.
    • There's another scene where Bart's car drives off a cliff and into the ocean that has model work at least as bad as the submarine and helicopter scene. It's short, but the model work is just that bad that it's still obvious that it's a toy.
