Filled with ambition, but tragically amateurish. Seems they couldn't afford a camera that recorded sound so every line is added in afterwords. This is carried out by two men calling themselves Edward G. Robinson and Eddie Constantine, though the latter only dubs/narrates 5 minutes or so.
The biggest weakness is that the narrator "dubs" scenes, i.e. narrates them as if he was in the situation at hand and talks to the individuals, it's obviously incredibly out of sync and comes off as plain silly. To make things worse we get badly staged scenes, like a climax fight, while "Robinson" continues to narrates is thoughts and supposed dialog, often presented through weak or badly done jokes. It's obvious that they are trying to make something special, but this is just plain bad.
