Movie Info

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,

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.

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.

Stylish lightweight silly tongue-in-cheek B movie caper film.

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.

... one of the best films from the late Italian director Mario Bava

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.

July 5, 2005 Full Review Source: St@tic Multimedia

An outrageously funny and cheeky comic-strip-style movie.

Pulpy late-60's spy silliness.

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.

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

Danger Diabolik - A outstanding movie from 1968. Diabolik was taken from an Italian Comic, much like our marvel comics. Diabolik movie was made about the same time as Batman (adam West) Appeared on our TV screens, good thing we didn't see Diabolik as we would have never turn Batman Back on. Move over Batman, Austin Powers, and James Bond. Bava and Diabolik are king. If you haven't seen or heard of this movie give it a chance.
