One of the best Mascot serials
28 June 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

One of the best Mascot serials concerns a couple of marines taking on the Tiger Shark a masked criminal who is trying to steal a gyro compass and prevent his hide out island from being turned into a military base. This is an action packed serial that is better in the chapters then it is in the cliffhangers. The cast is good (with great chemistry between the two leads), the action better. This is as good as Mascot gets, and in its way it might have rivaled some of Republics best work had it had a music track. Its a minor thing but the lack of music (something Mascot didn't really splurge for at any point) makes a little slow at times. That flaw aside this is one to watch. Its actually very good.
