Routine PRC Oater
3 April 2013 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Lash and Fuzzy take on a gang led by a mysterious mastermind intent on grabbing land from local owners. Not much to distinguish this oater except a couple energetic fist-fights that are also well choreographed. Then too, we wonder who the mysterious mastermind is, but 50-some minutes is not enough time to develop a real guessing game. Too bad the lovely Jennifer Holt doesn't have more to do than pretty up the screen.

No doubt about it, in that snappy black outfit, Lash is the best dressed of all the matinée heroes. Here he cuts the proverbial dashing figure. It's a PRC production, so expect a lot of familiar LA- area scrublands as background. Fortunately, Fuzzy's not too silly as comic relief, but catch those leg contortions at fadeout. Nothing special, but enough for matinée fans of any age.
