Factual errors: Diabolik steals a 20-ton ingot of gold. The ingot is shown to be about the size of a VW minibus, but, because gold is so dense, a 20-ton block would take up much less space: a little over one cubic metre (36 cubic feet, or a cube-shaped block 39 inches each side).See more »

Danger:Diabolik, 16 August 2006
Author: kashimanotachi from United States

Considered to be the finest adaption of a comic book to date, Danger:Diabolik is to my my knowledge Bava's biggest budgeted film and looks it. The cast headed by John Philip Law as the suave super thief Diabolik and Marisa Mell as his beautiful girlfriend/accomplice Eva Kent do a superb job. There's also some strong supporting performances by Michel Piccoli as Diabolik's nemesis Inspector Ginko and Adolfo Celi as the degenerate crime lord Ralph Valmont here as well. On the technical side of things, Bava does his usual masterful job of directing. Pace is kept lively and never falters. The musical score was written by Ennio Morricone and is one of the best. I highly recommend this film.
