Not the best movie in the series, but still fun
23 October 2002 | by (Saint Clair, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This movie really marked the decline in the fabled Dr. Mabuse series, at least for me. I think it was the inclusion of the invisibility schtick...Dr. Mabuse works much better with realism and realistic devices (his multitude of video and audio pick-ups, his mind control drugs, etc.) than fanciful items out of science fiction.

This film also suffered for not having Gert Frobe in the picture as Commissioner Lohmann to counterpoint Lex Barker's suave FBI agent (who this time does not even attempt to confuse us as to which side of the law he is on).

Still, there is a lot of good action in this film, and the cinematography is excellent as well. Definitely worth a look.
