Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The finale of the Fantomas thriller series, it has people trailed all over Belgium, a bizarre scene in a belfry, and a off-the-wall prison escape."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"Isn't up to the same level of mad, proto-surrealist invention. [of] anything else in the Fantômas series."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"For something that's now 97 years old, it's a terrific, hugely entertaining film."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
