Worse Than the First One, Even With Mario Bava Directing
16 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dr. Goldfoot (Vincent Price) has a new plan for world domination: he is going to send beautiful women after military men... except that when kissed, these women explode! He has also relocated to Italy, though this does nothing to stop SIC from tracking him down.

You can read pretty much any review or look at the rating on IMDb and you will get the idea that this is a bad film. Now, I do not think it is as bad as most people do, but I do accept a number of things: it is not as funny, the continuity from the first film makes little sense, Goldfoot keeps breaking the fourth wall for some reason, and Mario Bava is better than this.

Really, all you have is everything from the first film toned down a few notches. And as much as I enjoyed the first one, it is not really what one might call a great film. What made it work (besides Price) was Susan Hart, so without her the sequel was not going to be as good no matter what you did. Throwing in two bungling, unfunny Italian comics does not make it okay.

Troy Howarth has written a fine overview of the film (which he rightly calls "a mess") and reviewed it. His words are worth quoting. With regards to Price, Howarth thinks "this sort of material is quite beneath his talents. All told, this film represents an all-time low for both Price and Bava." I am inclined to agree.

According to Howarth, Bava "had no enthusiasm for the project and tried to pull out of it" but he was "under contract for one more film". The biggest problem, among many, was that the project "was to be edited into two completely different films" and the "American version, widely hailed as a bomb, is not the work of Mario Bava, as it was re-written, re-scored and re-edited without his participation". I have not seen the Italian version, but it is not rumored to be any better.

If you liked the first Goldfoot, I would recommend giving this one a chance, as long as you are aware that the American version is a sequel to this while the Italian version is a sequel to an Italian film, and both were cut from the same film. Despite all this it still makes sense, but the quality is understandably bad.
