The death knell of Dr Mabuse is more like it.
2 August 2000 | by (on an island full of spies) – See all my reviews

From 1960 to 1964 the Germans released six thrillers focusing on Dr Mabuse. I loved five of them.Guess which one I hate.Hate may be too strong a word.But after wanting to see this for so long the actual viewing is a disappointment.

The writers/producers/director strayed from the original source material of Dr Mabuse. James Bond was extremely popular at the time and it heavily influenced this film.

What we have is a hodge podge of too many smart spies running around an island. They're all looking for the latest person possessed by Dr Mabuse. Mabuse has gotten his hands on a death ray and is ready to start World War III.

If it wasn't for a very tenuous three minutes at the beginning of the film and the last two minutes you wouldn't know you were watching a Dr Mabuse movie. You'd chalk it up to a really bad James Bond rip off and do something else. Smart move.
