Storyline

Strategic targets on Earth are being destroyed by an unknown weapon. Government security head Henderson suspects it's an "atomic ray" originating from the moon! He assigns Commando Cody, scientist and man of action with a secret flying suit, to investigate. Soon, Cody is battling Earth thugs in the pay of Krog the moon man and making trips in his experimental rocket to the moon itself, in a perilous and all but singlehanded effort to thwart the planned invasion of Earth.

Available in true stereo goggles DVD!
8 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

I just wanted to point out that currently this is one of two stereo goggles 3D movie serials

Can be viewed on either European or American format DVD player over most any television set using an inexpensive adapter and 3D shutter glasses.

The wired glasses are cheaper and more bullet proof than the wireless, and no expensive batteries. Battery door can eventually become loose and then lost, so wireless not way cool like wired's.

A real geek fun festival to be watching rocketman fly by wire in 3D!
