PS: When is Superargo vs. Diabolicus going to be released to US DVD.
The Superargo film also called "L'invincibile Superman" and "Superargo vs. The Faceless Giants" is an sequel to "Superargo Vs. Diabolikus" and both are Italian made and both were originally shot in Cinemascope or 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Unfortunately I have never seen a home version of this film in it's original aspect ratio and that is too bad because the 1.85:1 crop leaves a lot of scenes where you have to guess what is going on. Moreover, what really leaves you wondering what is happening on the screen is the truly horrible condition that the print is in. I'm not talking just pops scratches and splices. I'm talking almost the entire film being "pink" due to vinegar burn. I'm not kidding the movie is really that unwatchable.
I'm not a big fan of Sinister Cinema but they do have a better print of this film and I advise you to get that version. It's still cropped at 1.85:1 but it is a night and day difference compared to this crappy print.
One day maybe Superargo fans will get both films in their original scope and from the original negatives. Until then if you want to see this movie get the Sinister Cinema version please!
This is a great camp superhero movie, with all the fun you might hope for from a sixties European action film. A mad scientist, groovy girls, and sped-up action. The hero, whom we never see unmasked, also has a spiritual/guru sidekick who sort of manages to be Yoda and Robin in one. One of those surreal kinds of films that make it feel like 3 AM no matter what time of the day you watch it.
