Satch's Thick Skull Saves the Day
1 January 2007 | by (Flushing, NY) – See all my reviews

The gang finds out that Satch's skull is thicker than an ordinary person's. Slip decides to put use of this by entering Satch in a wrestling match where he can win $1000 for staying in the ring for 10 minutes. Satch uses his head to knock his opponent out and now is pitted in a series of matches for the title. However the power in his head is temporary and the next match the power is in the flick of his finger. The power then moves to his elbows, then toes. After defeating the champ, Taylor and his gambling syndicate try to kidnap Satch to find out where his power is now before a scheduled rematch with the former champ Hombre Montana, even using Taylor's girlfriend Rhonda. Can Satch discover his power before his next fight? A little bit above average compared to the latter films of the series, since it has the crime element found in the earlier Monogram series. The best sight gags are the ones where Satch is discovering his powers. Great last line in the film by Hall referencing the newest location of his power. Rating, 6.
