Storyline

A distant planet teleports a young man and woman from an apartment building to compete in a gladiatorial contest. For the aliens it's just an amusing jungle reality show, but if the humans fail, Earth will be destroyed. The woman is desperate to save Earth, but the man is a vicious, petty crook on the run, who has little to lose, but doesn't care about humanity's fate. Written by David Stevens

Great fun for Nick Adams fans
23 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nick plays an ex-boxer teamed up with Nancy Malone to do battle on a distant planet with two aliens. Good scarring make up on close ups of Adams who plays a Terry Malloy type from "On the Waterfront." Adams did his obligatory usual "freak out" scene, and there were few better in Hollywood at the time that could lose it as good as "Johnny Yuma" could. Adams was an authentically tough and athletic man whose passions included playing semi-professional baseball and he was also an avid practitioner of the martial arts. This fine actor left us far too soon and catch this if you are a fan of his as it is a great period curio of a time long gone.
