Not when there are currency shipments to steal from under the noses of snooty government officials and priceless jewels to lift from the boudoirs of the superrich. The elusive scoundrel finds plenty of ways to live up to his name in this tongue-in-cheek, live-action caper inspired by Europe's popular Diabolik comics. He clambers up walls, zaps a press conference with Exhilaration Gas, smacks a confession out of a crimelord while freefalling with him from an airplane, and pulls off the heist of a twenty-ton gold ingot. Impossible? No, diabolical - Danger: Diabolik, to be exact! ...Danger: Diabolik ( Danger: Diabolik! ) ( Diabolik )

4.0 out of 5 stars Total Eye Candy - Fabulous 17 Mar 2008
This movie was taken by Mario Bava from an Italian comic book, and turned into a fantastic late 60's explosion of colour, swinging music and speeded up car chases. The lead character - Diabolik - is a master criminal with an incredible underground hideout, which makes the bat cave look like a pot hole. John Philip Law, who plays our anti-hero, is incredible to watch. As Diabolik spends a lot of the time masked up in black PVC, with only his eyes and eyebrows on view, Philip Law brilliantly portrays a man on the edge by constantly moving and twitching. Always on the look out for the cops or other criminals. He's ably accompanied by the beautiful Melissa Mell as his partner in crime - and she certainly makes the most of the rather skimpy wardrobe she has. And then there's the groovy soundtrack by Ennio Morricone. Great stuff. The only drawback to the film is the lack of structure. It watches like 4 or 5 different issues from the comic it was taken from. There's a number of different heists that, on their own are great fun to watch, but as a whole don't lead anywhere. They're just the latest in his string of master crimes. But if you're willing to accept that as a whole, the film doesn't really have any beginning or end, then you should be ready to squeeze into that PVC cat-suit, jump into the nearest E-type, and speed off into the psychadelia horizon with a beautiful chick by your side. Italian crime caper at its best!

I wish they made more of these films. Excellent rival for those early Bond films filed with action and some humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars bona fide cult classic. 2 Jun 2010
danger diabolik is a movie from the golden age of cult cinema-the mid sixties.The director,mario bava,is known more for his stylish horror masterpieces like mask of satan,black sabbath,and the girl who knew too he spoofs the bond movies and heist film such as rififi and spoof spy films like modesty blaise..the result doesnt make much sense but its style and sixties "grooviness" put it up there with the very best cult movies.And terry thomas,as ever,is brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Escapist Fantasy 9 May 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Purely escapist and infantile cult film of the late Sixties of the last century. I remember seeing it as a school boy and wowed the adventures in the film.

You are a handsome young thief,robbing not just petty cash here and there but millions of dollars, you have a sexy girl friend oozing the eortic of a Barbie doll,who helps you escape in a sports Jaguar after robbing those millions. You have a futuristic house and you make love to your girl friend on a bed full of those robbed dollar bills. What more puerile fantasies you want to live out?

British comedian Terry Thomas has two scenes appearance worth watching.

A Saturday afternoon film when you have finished your shopping,come home,unpack your take away,seat with the family and enjoy the film.

Stylish 60's comic-book version of a more morally ambiguous James Bond character-good slightly camp, old-school action thriller spy fun from the Italian cheap horror master.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diabolikly Good 13 Oct 2011
By Andy H
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is pure 1960's. It has everything-action, girls,cars. What more can you want? From the first frame it doesn't disappoint and what's more our hero remains faithful to his girl-not a womaniser like 007.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 70s camp classic 5 Mar 2009
Danger Diabolik is fantastically campy, has great production design, a hot sidekick and some truly hilarious scenes. It's highly recommended! Not only does it bear the trademark 70s look and feel and attitude, it's also a great little story and a movie that made quite an impact. The DVD offers the film in really nice quality and hosts a set of really interesting extras. If you discover this film for the first time, or if you've seen this when you were young, this disc is the way to (re)discover it. Enjoy

4.0 out of 5 stars First-rate nonsense! 11 Sep 2008
Joyfully ridiculous from end to end - bursting with extravagent sets, daft costumes, impressive photography and typical "international" dubbing, this is utterly irresistible! John Philip Law, Michel Piccoli before he got all serious, the villain from "Thunderball", Terry-Thomas, E-Type Jags, Morricone - what's not to like? Throw away that copy of the misbegotten Halle Berry "Catwoman" and get the real thing!

For those who are not Italian probably this movie means nothing. For those who knows Diabolik and agree with it's motion-picture this is a cult movie. Anyway. *****

This is a film that does not take itself too seriously. Horror director Mario Bava was funded by Dino De Laurentis to direct this arty Italian response to James Bond. Read more
