Critic Reviews for The Return of Doctor X
What makes this one worth a peek is that the role of a pasty-faced zombie-vampire is played by no less than Humphrey Bogart!
Embora superior ao original (o que não é difícil) e mantenha um bom ritmo ao longo de seus 62 minutos, o filme vale mais como curiosidade por trazer Bogart em um dos desempenhos mais absurdos de sua carreira.
Audience Reviews for The Return of Doctor X
No Lugosi or Karloff kinda detracted from this, but we do have Bogart in this one. A murder-mystery, this one had less humor as the original (but there was some that was a bit out-of-place). There was some Expressionism present (reminiscent of the earlier German school) which actually didnt seem out-of-place. I didnt like this one as much as the first one, though it was interesting seeing Bogart in a role like this.
This movie is supposed to be the sequel to Dr. x, but it strays so far away from the original that it's a different story altogether. Bogart, who wasn't in the first movie plays an evil scientist, and it's not his best performance. I didn't like this movie.
The Return of Doctor X (1939) -- [5.5] -- The best thing about this movie is Humphrey Bogart's creepy turn as an executed baby killer brought back to life by the science of Dr. X. He makes a great villain, but unfortunately, no one else in this movie can match his screen presence. Overall, the sequel (in name only) is definitely better plotted and paced than the 1932 original, and benefits from a full musical score and a better cast. It's not a bad film. It's just not a very memorable one, either.
