Much like part one, I have to say how impressed I am for what they were able to accomplish in 1913. The picture is crisp, the story is well-done, there is plenty of action. We even have some rather basic special effects.
The focus shifts in this second part to be more on Juve (the detective) rather than Fantomas (the thief). This gives it a feeling of a chase, and indeed on the train there is plenty of movement and pacing. Juve is always on the move, even if he never knows if he is going in the right direction...
This whole series is incredible, and I highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in silent film.
