Organ traffickers hold the city in a grip of fear. It's up to Lucha Superstar Dos Caras Jr. to stop them.
While this movie is mediocre at best, it's worth a look for one of the earliest film appearances of former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio, who by this time was still known in Mexico as the masked Dos Caras, Jr. A weird blend of action, suspense, crime and a little horror here and there, the film follows Caras Jr. befriending a couple of orphans whom he take under his wing. Meanwhile, somewhere in the underbelly of Mexico City, an organ trafficking ring is kidnapping young people to supply their leader, a ludicrous masked villain (veteran Mexican comedian Jose Natera), with the stuff he needs for his customers willing to pay the price in the black market. The noble, heroic Caras Jr. will eventually cross paths with the villains. The movie is terribly acted, with tons of inane dialog and bad taste moments (the evil doctor has a secret) and ultimately and unintentionally campy. Kudos to the producers and director for trying to capture the look and feel of the vintage Santo/Blue Demon/Mil Mascaras film adventures but those ones are miles ahead of this train wreck. Strictly for fans of Del Rio, fans of the beautiful Julieta Carpinteiro (who plays the unsuspecting sister of one of the doctor's henchmen), or fans of string-budgeted, grade-Z action flicks.
