Super-cool character...who does not much of anything!
20 February 2012 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

After escaping a hanging for stealing the British Royal Crown, mysterious super-thief Kriminal (Glenn Saxson) sets his sights on some jewels being taken from London to Istanbul. Everything goes smoothly until he subdues the courier (Helga Liné) and finds out her jewel box is empty. He figures out that the owners were looking to swindle the insurance company, so he heads to Turkey to blackmail them and also steal the real jewels if at all possible. Close on his heels is Inspector Milton (Andrea Bosic).

Oh man, Umberto Lenzi adapting a popular Italian comic character who dresses like a skeleton? Filmed widescreen in England and Istanbul? This has to rock, right? Uh, no. While watching this I realized around the one hour mark that I'd heard a lot of talk about diamonds, but very little actual action. It isn't until the 70 minute mark that the plan goes into effect and is laughable at best, relying on a bank actually letting a guy enter their safe deposit box vault with his head wrapped in bandages. What I was hoping would be in the vein of DANGER: DIABOLIK (1968) ended up being more along the lines of very dry Bond knockoff. One problem is there is very little action that one would expect. A car chase? Hell, a foot chase? Nope. The Kriminal costume is very cool, but he only wears it three times throughout the movie and never during actual robberies, just when he likes to creep up on women. This is the film's other major problem as Kriminal is a pretty mean character, even for an anti-hero. I figure the filmmakers want you to root for him, but it is hard when he slaps women around and tries to blow up his ex-wife. Saxson is handsome as the lead, looking a bit like Richard Harrison. He returned in the sequel THE MASK OF KRIMINAL (1968) a couple of years later.
