User Reviews

 
Great parody of Nick Carter the pulp magazine detective
30 September 2000 | by TomiManSee all my reviews

A movie with great effects that make you wonder how it was possible at those days. Specially the fall of Nick Carter from the balloon. Director combines real actors and the great skill of animators in his country. This very campy movie was released in Slovakia (1996) on VHS in PAL-format.
