Much Better Than Expected!
13 February 2003 | by (California, but not where the cool folks live) – See all my reviews

This Universal serial was never much discussed by fans of the genre and was thought lost. Released on DVD and VHS by VCI in 2003, it at first was overshadowed by the also-rediscovered JUNGLE JIM. Now that the dust has settled most fans seem to prefer it to JIM, and some say it's among the best Universals, on a par with the three Flash Gordons. Henry Brandon's performance as the heavy is one of the most memorable in serials, and production values are above average for a serial. Entertaining and fun, it provides absolutely no food for thought.
