Awesome crime satire!
I did enjoy this watch: to me, clearly a humorous take onto crime solving. The characters are vividly displayed (even if the femal leads remain rather dull and dump… by intention) and the storyline is a huge quest of “who is the actual murderer” as we don’t know the face of the perpetrator as an audience.
Personally, I was especially drawn in by the set design with various historically accurate (and inaccurate) gadgets, such as secret doors, car telephones, underground pipelines, miniature submarines and (my highlight) a security system hidden in a taxidermied bear mounted to the wall with blinking eyes and switches pulled inside the bear’s ear.
The movie is well paced, with many entertaining highlights, dialogues, chase scenes and those strange incidents that make you question who might be the ‘bad man’ in disguise.
Fun to watch! For me as film history student it was a must, but I’d recommend it to anyone who is in for a retro detective fun ride based on old stories transported to the 60s.
The most famous of the Wallace adaptations, still no good
“Der Hexer” or “The Wizard” is a German black-and-white film from over 40 years ago and it is another Edgar Wallace adaptation. Director Vohrer and writer Reinecker worked on several of these and there are more typical feature for this film. Lead actor is Joachim “Blacky” Fuchsberger who is in the hunt of a dangerous killer again. Damsel in distress is Sphie Hardy this time and as usual the identity of the killer is not revealed until the very end. The film runs really short for films from the Wallace series, barely makes it to the 80-minute-mark. I have seen a few of these films recently and I have to say they don’t do a whole lot for me. The stories are usually unrealistic and it is never edge-of-seat material. In this one, there are a couple baffling moments too, for example when a whole lot of policemen let the suspect just run out of the door in the end. Distracted by a woman shooting blanks? Really? I don’t buy it. Another aspect: Early on it is told us that all the Hexer wants is his revenge and yet he tries to kill the investigators on several occasions, for example with a poisonous snake? Doesn’t make sense. Like a couple other things in this film. The only reason why this film is so popular and way higher rated than it should be (also here on IMDb) is maybe because its unusual ending (the bad triumphs somewhat). But this ending really only happens because the detectives turned out to be complete idiots, including Fuchsberger’s who is depicted as the smartest all the time before and in other Wallace films too. I cannot believe it. This was not even a remotely good film. Not recommended.
