Well, well... Here's part two of Lang's trivial adventure hokum and as it is evident from the start that it's even weaker than its predecessor, one's glad that this Feuillade wannabe wasn't fully realized.
The succession of hair-raising stunts and long dull sequences of hollow travesty is almost hypnotic in its banality. But even as pure entertainment, the pic's a misfire.
But no worries: Just a few years later, Lang would strike cinematic gold one movie after another. (He could never fully shake off the pulp roots of this early work, though.)
