Fair serial - routine except for Clayton Moore
26 May 2002 | by (Hamilton,Ontario Canada) – See all my reviews

The standard plot and acting are acceptable but the fight scenes lack the excitement of the earlier Republic serials because they are not under-cranked. Even the runaway coach scenes (the same shot repeated twice in the same serial for two different chases) are relatively unexciting. The shooting angles don't provide a sense of motion. Just look at the Lone Ranger serial by Republic and compare the riding scenes in the earlier serial to this one.

Best thing about the serial is George J. Lewis, playing a good guy.
