Superb action segments; weak chapter endings
5 March 2001 | by (Berlin, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

Federal Operator 99 has some of the best fight and actions scenes from any of the Republic serials of the era. This is an excellent example of using sound stages as "warehouses" with almost no props to stage a two and three level fight scene. Both Tom Steele and Dale Van Sickle are at the height of their athletic ability in this serial that stars a realatively unknown, Marten Lamont. The chapter endings, however, are among some of the weakest and contrived by the Republic studios. It is hard to accept some of them given it is a serial.
