Let me say right off the bat that at least for me, there were two things working in this film's favour even before I started it (as 2 nifty percent of my infamous Mill Creek 50-pack, 'Nightmare Worlds'): a) I love the old-time serials, a part a week at the theatres, each with a cliffhanger ending; and b) I'm a fan of Buster Crabbe, from seeing him previously both as Tarzan and in a Flash Gordon serial. Directors Beebe and Goodkind were masters at the format, and this is no exception (although since it's from the 30's, and with B-movie budgetary restrictions at that, I readily dismiss all negative comments from people complaining that for the 1950's, it's really crappy filmmaking--it's NOT from the 50's, but simply edited then into a feature-length film the company could then sell, most probably to television stations).

I enjoyed it, though I wish that instead of seeing this, I was watching the unedited, undiluted full serial that was originally made. I have read that the best and most exciting parts were edited out.

Very poor editing created a choppy story. This would be a good show once you had seen the original shorts.

From somewhere in the skies above us come, from time to time, flaming discs and weird phenomena--A charm of its own!!

Badly edited, but at least that has a reason (considering that it's pieces from a serial.) The acting, plot, and characters are pretty bad. The story doesn't come or go anywhere and things don't make a lot of sense. The film tries too hard to make decent characters that everything feels out of place.

Horribly edited, but still a lot of B movie fun.

Considering when this was filmed, it?s quite remarkable. Although the special effects are a bit crude, they weren?t back then and I am sure seemed rather amazing. The plot is a bit hokey, and the acting not the best, but it sure did entertain me.
