Consider this plot:

The protagonist is ordered by his boss(or hired by his client) to go into a potentially dangerous situation. He makes precautions to insure against something going badly. Along with a female companion he ventures forth. They fall into a trap set by the villain and are captured and imprisoned. By luck, guile and force they manage to overcome and kill the villain. It sounds like many of the Matt Helm plots, for example. It also happens to be the plot of Hansel and Gretel.

And DR. NO.

Let me add: and both Austin Powers.
