Storyline

Quand le professeur Marchand, un célèbre scientifique, disparaît mystérieusement, le commissaire Juve soupçonne tout de suite Fantomas. Entre temps le journaliste Fandor se déguise en Léfèvre, assistant de Marchand, et il est enlevé par Fantomas. Mais également le commissaire Juve tombe dans le piège pendant que Fantomas, lui aussi, se déguise en Léfevre et ils se retrouvent tous à Rome à un congrès scientifique. Fantomas aura le dessus et les intéressés se retrouveront dans son antre, prisonniers et, semble-t-il, sans aucune possibilité d'échapper à leur destin, accompagnés par la musique d'un orgue joué par Fantomas. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

James Bondesque comedy
16 June 2001 | by vostfSee all my reviews

This episode is definitely the more entertaining of the series starring de Funès and Jean Marais. After the rather flat Fantômas (1964) and before a weird #3 where the evil genius becomes a base racketeer who occasionally kills a Lord in a Scottish manor, Fantômas se déchaîne is well packed with action and fun.

OK the directing is pretty lame and you'd better discovering this movie as a child since an over-the-top De Funès with all the James Bond toolkit spoofing can't make up for all the lack of rhythm. On the whole De Funès and Jean Marais are perfect to make the whole thing work throughout that good model of what was and is lacklustre yet popular French cinema.
