Low budget all the way
26 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had hoped this might prove to be a decent movie but it wasn't. The production values and sound effects and staging of this movie are at about the level of an early 1950's Superman TV program - only the color (at least in the print I watched) has shifted to a nice shade of yellow-orange. Maybe this film could have been better if it didn't shriek 'cheap! cheap! cheap!' at every turn, but it does. Save your time and watch something else. It does have one interesting aspect, though - this is one of the very few movies I have ever seen where the opening credits say 'and introducing... (someone - in this case, Peter Graves)' where you actually heard from the person again later. Usually, when a movie credit says "... and introducing..." you never hear from the person again. It's a miracle that this movie didn't turn Peter Graves into a truck driver.
