Trivia

There's a scene in Mandoras where a small airplane circles and then lands in order to drop off an Army general. The tail number (registration number) is visible in one of the scenes (N4328C). Upon researching it, that airplane, a 1955 Aeronca Champ 7EC, is still flying as of 5/13 and is based in Modesto, CA. However, as of 5/13, it's for sale. See more »

Quotes

Would Be Good For MST3K, Not So Great By Itself
18 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A group of fanatics on the island of Mandoras, in their attempts to eliminate all threats to their diabolical plot to conquer the world, kidnap a famous American neurobiologist, triggering a rescue search that blows their plan to bits.

Also known as "They Saved Hitler's Brain", which really gets more to the point than the "Mandoras" title. Where is Mandoras? Not sure... let's assume somewhere near Argentina, just for the sake of putting it somewhere.

Some of the lines are cheesy, but memorable, such as, "I'm a very good police chief. I always obey orders, most of the time." Tom Sharon, perhaps a Texan, is the only spirited character of the film. He saved the movie from being completely worthless.

Most other reviewers will trash this film even more than I would, so I won't bother to say too much... just be confident that it's not good.
