Okay serial, more plot and characters than usual.
1 December 1999 | by (Blacksburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Okay Universal serial is interesting for casting, such as "slow burn" 2nd banana Edgar Kennedy as the sidekick, Milburn Stone (Doc on Gunsmoke) as the action lead, and dependable Nazi Martin Kosleck as one of the baddies. Anthony Warde is his usual menacing self, and Marjorie Weaver is lovely, as is the uncredited blonde secretary. An abundance of stock footage and cheezy special effects, but hey---you've gotta suspend your disbelief for most serials anyway. Just the thing for a long winter evening.
