I always wanted to see an El Santo movie. And I got my chance. With that, I can?t lie, it was long but kinda fun. It is great to see that the Mexican film industry in the mid 60?s put things out that was exactly as it would have been from Hollywood. It was kooky and interesting in it?s jumpiness. This movie has a near complete wrestling match in the middle, a great scene where shirtless martian people in capes decide to disguise themselves by entering a smoke room and turning into shirtless greek gladiator looking people which they never wear anywhere else in the movie, can-can dancing, asian luchadore martian, and a complete lack of explanation. It?s campy with no qualms, and good at it.

There's one scene where the martians say that, "they have to change their looks so that they won't scare humans while trying to abduct them" Now, their original "look" is normal humans just wearing silly silver-ish clothes and hindu type of hats. They change that to roman-style clothes that cover their bodies even less than the previous clothing, then they say "now we are ready!" I shit you not, also, be sure to have plenty of beers if you ever try to watch a Santo, or any other mexican wrestle-xplotation movie. The drunker the better.

Sometimes, there's nothing that will put you in a better mood than a great Mexican Wrestler movie, and Santo vs. The Martian Invasion IS A GREAT MEXICAN WRESTLER MOVIE!!!
