Effective Soviet sci-fi thriller
19 November 2019 | by marshalskriegSee all my reviews

This is a story-set in the 1920'- about engineer Garin- a rogue-ish mad scientist intent on controlling the world with his death ray invention. Through many intrigues across international borders , we witness Garin scheming w/ double dealing government agents and business tycoons. Who will win this evil race to conquer humanity ?

The dialogue is adequate and sometimes tense. Nothing here is symbolic or surreal- what we get is a straightforward James Bond- esque plot to rule the world. But how it all ends for Garin is a most brilliant ironic piece of poetic justice that has left me with a powerful lingering image ...
