Storyline

Naturally, after his last experience, Inspector Juve winces under such rebuff as the substitution of Valgrand and the escape of Fantomas. Eventually a mysterious crime puzzles him and his assistant, Fandor. To the chief of the Criminal Investigation Department, he reports that the body of a woman, found in the house of Dr. Charles, cannot be identified. Papers bearing the name of Lady Beltham had been discovered in her clothing. Was the body that of Lady Beltham, the accomplice of Gurn, or was it the intention that people should believe that she was dead? Juve wondered why the body was found in the house of Dr. Charles. He concerns himself to watch the house, and the patience of Fandor and himself is unexpectedly rewarded. One day Dr. Charles leaves the house, and the car in which he rides is followed. Charles makes a false move. The man who leaves the closed car is not the Dr. Charles who got in. He is now a young man, with a black moustache, whereas Charles is a middle-aged man with...

"Fantomas" Continues...
10 February 2016 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

While I found part one to be a great film, part two seems to be when things really start to get interesting! Part one certainly has its amazing moments, but this continuation seems to be nothing BUT amazing moments! In fact, I was shocked at how entertained I was during all of "Juve Against Fantomas".

At the beginning of the film, there's this huge sequence on a train, and the amount of tension, suspense, and sheer epic quality of that sequence actually gave me goosebumps. This film is so amazingly awesome that it will give you goosebumps. How often do you think a film over 100 years old will do that? Not very often.

"Juve Against Fantomas" proves that bias against such old films is absolutely unnecessary, since quite a few films made in the 1910's still seem great and thrilling as ever!
