Good movie
15 September 2005 | by montecristocountSee all my reviews

Considering the time when the movie was made, it's special effects, sound, and style will be found good.

El Increible Profesor Zovek is considered the best escape Artist in all history in Mexico (a Houdini like), but in addition he was an extraordinary athlete, he performed in a live TV show 17,800 non stop sit ups in 8 hours (no tricks on it)and did the last 200 carrying his secretary on his hands over his head; he made another record by swimming more than 8 hours (uninterrupted) for another TV program, he could drag a series of eight cars using a biting piece and his teeth and he did it. He was a Martial Arts expert and even an instructor of the Mexican Army Military Police (he broke concrete blocks, woods and other stuff, which is not very surprising today, but the way he did it make it interesting, because before breaking his targets, he first stood in one foot over the targets lifting a woman, and that was a proof of the clean free-of-tricks exhibition). He was able to escape from chains, strait jackets and handcuffs without tricks or keys. So he became in late 60's early 70's a national hero, all kids were dreaming to be as strong and wise as Professor Zovek.

Producers took advantage of his popularity to start a series of movies with Zovek as a star (the first contract was for nine). They could make 1 and a half because he was killed in a very strange accident in March 1972; the audience respected and admired the Professor and they continued cheering his adventures in this movie and in "La invasion de los Muertos" (Mexican version of "The night of the living dead") with the Professor as central character so he was acting himself in both movies.

He couldn't finished the making of "La invasion de los muertos" because of his accident so they rewrote the script and called a Mexican wrestling star "Blue Demon" to finish it.

People knew that most of the amazing actions they saw on screen performed by Zovek were somehow part of his repertory.

You gonna enjoy watching this movie where Zovek demonstrates his abilities fighting a crazy scientist, Leobardo Druso (Jose Galvez) Nobel price in physics who wants to conquer the world using some kind of telepathic orders.

Dr. Druso has to kill to colleagues by placing a bomb in an airline flight, and he does because he needs to be free to continue with his experiments. Zovek is involved because he has been following the process of their work using his telepathic skills.

When Dr. Druso realizes that the Professor sent his secretary Virginia (Nubia Marti) and his driver Chano (German Valdez "Tin-Tan")to follow his men, he order his kidnapping to investigate and use the powerful mind of the professor.

Mexico 1971. Dir. Rene Cardona Screenplay Chano Urueta
