Diabolik (John Phillip Law) is the criminal mastermind who has just pulled off a huge heist. He spends most of his free time with his girlfriend, Eva (Marisa Mell), in fond embrace. The police minister (Terry-Thomas) is approached by Valmont (Adolfo Celi), a master criminal who proposes to use his underworld connections to catch Diabolik for the police. In between their gratuitous lovemaking, he and the exotic Eva are chased by police and the mob in this plodding crime drama. ~ Dan Pavlides,

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
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.
Way too much like something left over from the Adam West Batman series to impress me the way it was supposed to.
For Bava as for Daibolik, aesthetic beauty and tactile sensation trump emotional connection and spiritual depth.
A super-stylish live-action adaptation of the popular 1960s European comic-strip.
Looking at the film on Paramount's superb new DVD, it's clear that a neglected masterpiece of the genre has now emerged.
... a surreal mix of spy movie, heist thriller, and anti-establishment satire, all with delirious style and tongue firmly in cheek.
Pulpy late-60's spy silliness.
