Turning in a solid performance, Blue Demon shoulders the burden of stardom in this one- although longtime friendly rival El Santo manages to pop up here, as well. (The irony isn't lost of fans of these two: in more than one movie, they seem at odds with one another, although their seeming mutual distrust of one another is carefully balanced with a begrudging respect; still, it's this undercurrent of mistrust that lends their scenes together much of their humor.) Blue proves more than a match for "the powers of Satan," and, being (as noted) a credible enough performer, keeps things interesting both in the ring and out. Of all the luchadores, it seems to me, Blue Demon was perhaps the most interesting (next to Santo himself).
