One of the most action-packed films in the Santo series!
11 December 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This Santo film is loaded with well-choreographed fight scenes both in and out of the ring, and is one of the most action-packed films in the series. The plot revolves around a phony swami and his unlikely gang of wrestler/thugs who concoct a phony seance to defraud a beautiful young woman out of her inheritance.

Santo and his two wrestler-buddies (referred to in the film simply as "Gray Mask" and "Black Mask") take on the swami & his thugs in no less than six individual fight sequences during the course of the film. In one scene, the thugs all decide to jump into the ring during one of Santo's wrestling bouts and beat the daylights out of him in front of thousands of amazed spectators!

The fistfights seem to go on interminably, and by the end of the film, every character has taken an incredible amount of physical abuse. Santo is pummeled, kicked and bumrushed so many times, I lost count. During the course of one melee, a cowardly little pistolero even puts a bullet into him!

In the finale, the phony mystic dresses up one of his thugs (the always entertaining Mexi-wrestler Benny Galan) in a Santo costume, and Santo comes busting into the seance and takes on his surprised clone mano-a-mano, while Santo's buddies kick butt on the rest of the goons.

This film is just loaded with well-choreographed action (reminiscent of the old Republic serials of the 1940's) and just never lets up.
