OK, It's Old
11 June 2011 | by (Arroyo Grande, California) – See all my reviews

You have to be "into" these old serials before you can really enjoy them. It takes some work. You can't just watch it and be entertained by the "boom factor", like say, The Matrix. Nor will you be amazed by the story or acting. It was an older time and a different mindset. Fans of modern CGI will be especially displeased by the silly effects evident here. Watching a little toy plane on a string "fall through the sky" just doesn't make it today, but that's what they had then.

As far as these serials go, this was a pretty good one. The level two actors gave their best, and the writing was OK, but it's hard to get past those effects. If you're willing to totally suspend your disbelief, this will work for you. If you're a 21st century kid with zero tolerance, pass it up.
