A delightfully outlandish comic strip directed by the master of the Italian B movie.

Bava lets the action play loose and big, but a sly subversion lurks beneath its camp exterior.

Infantile junk.

Although it's too long and eventually loses track of Itself, Danger: Diabolik is very nearly the movie Barbarella should have been.

Way too much like something left over from the Adam West Batman series to impress me the way it was supposed to.

Audience Reviews for Danger: Diabolik

Bava's direction is what truly makes D:D stand above other similar cinematic affairs. Morricone's super groovy soundtrack helps a lot too. A shame Adolfo Celi doesn't get as much screen time as he could.

Not quite the campfest I expected. Mediocre, but worth a watch.

Super Reviewer

james bond meets the pink panther with a whole lot of sixties pop style. the weak script and cheesy acting don't keep this from being great fun. really cool score and groovy set designs but bava could make most anything look great! campy cult classic
