All Critics (23) | Top Critics (4)

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.

October 23, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A feast for both the eyes and ears.

November 16, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's basically a serial, with multiple, disparate adventures stitched together - perhaps not unexpected, considering that the source material is a comic strip.

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.

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
