Some of the best film bad guys ever!
16 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

This film has two of the most devious characters ever to enter Mexican cinema: Dr. Krupp,who is as evil as he is fat, and his hapless sidekick Bruno. Dr. Krupp IS actually quite the evil genius. During a flashback in the film, we find that he is clever enough to disguise himself as pro wrestling bad guy The Bat(who would ever suspect a mad scientist could be a pro wrestler?!? It's pure genius!!)and escapes the Aztec Mummy and his own snake pit trap(He was probably very happy that built that secret escape and had his keys with him). And Bruno is one of the few VERY loyal sidekicks I've ever seen in any film. The guy puts up with being punched by the Aztec Mummy, having acid thrown into his face and becoming deformed, and tolerating a boss who thinks he's a wrestler. Besides in the dubbed version, Bruno delivers the classic line "You devil! You devil!" better than anyone!
