Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
Strategic targets on Earth are being destroyed by an unknown weapon. Government security head Henderson suspects it's an "atomic ray" originating from the moon! He assigns Commando Cody, scientist and man of action with a secret flying suit, to investigate. Soon, Cody is battling Earth thugs in the pay of Krog the moon man and making trips in his experimental rocket to the moon itself, in a perilous and all but singlehanded effort to thwart the planned invasion of Earth.

In Chapter 1, when Cody wins the shootout with Graber and Daly, they decide to flee on foot. There is no reason for this; if they had taken the truck, they could have gone faster than on foot. See more »

10 stars 'cause they don't make them like this anymore
George Wallace is fine as aerospace flier 'Commando Cody'. Albeit he's a little over-aged for the part, Wallace is better than Tris Coffin who portrayed the rocketman two years earlier in 'King of the Rocketmen'. Bill Bakewell (who looks and sounds almost exactly like Wallace) is adequately humorous as the laboratory sidekick, while beautiful Aline Towne with her sexy voice dresses up the proceedings. Clayton Moore (TV's 'The Lone Ranger') plays a bad guy.
12-chapter 'serial' in which Cody flies to the moon to attempt to shutdown enemy forces pointing lasers at earth in order to destroy cities in preparation for an invasion soon to follow. Good escapist stuff, though rocketman Cody never appears naked (the contemporary meaning of the word "commando" is 'nude').
