Action Packed and Funny Too!
20 June 2007 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

As far as I am concerned, Flash Gordon set the standards by which all other serials or chapter plays are measured. Having said that, "Holt" holds up pretty well.

Well, first off, you have to accept a guy that looks 60 as a robust fighting hero. Then you have to be able to believe that ANY man can knock the stuffing outta eight husky men and leave them in a pile.

Then you have to be able to believe that when our hero refuses a blindfold, when he is about to be shot by a firing squad, and states: "Are you kiddin'? this is the only thing in life I ain't seen before!" Well, you don't really have to believe all this stuff, but you can have a lot of fun laughing at it, and the rest of the 'drama' presented here.

Only if you take serials seriously (no pun intended!) would you be disappointed in "Holt of the Secret Service." This one is a lot of fun.
