Easily the greatest Mexican wrestling film I've seen
27 June 2008 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

"The Champions of Justice" is one of the most ridiculously entertaining films I have ever seen. Its easily the greatest Mexican wrestling (known in their homeland as "Lucha Libre") film I've encountered. I mean the plot involves wrestling, beauty contests, mad scientists, super strength machines, and midgets - yes, this is insanely loopy! Like the best Mexican schlock, its borderline surreal and zips by at a lightning-quick pace. Its a mind-numbing laugh riot that needs to be seen by any self-respecting fan of psychotronic cinema.

Alright, I need to get a hold of myself. I guess on any "technical level", this isn't a great film. The direction is bland and Mexican wrestlers are well-known for their general lack of screen presence. However, on a pure entertainment level, its a stunning success. There's so many nutty plot elements, lousy special effects, inappropriate musical cues, and horrific acting the viewer can't turn themselves from the screen. Few other films manage to capture the feel of a good comic book as well as Mexico's brand of schlock, and "The Champions of Justice" is one of the country's finest exports. This needs a massive cult following! (8/10)
