El Cheapo-Sleazo!
16 April 2002 | by SuperwonderscopeSee all my reviews

Filmed in glorious Schlock-O-Rama, it's inept from B to Z. Hilariously inept, shall I say.

I must admit it's my first Santo experience (beside the other hilarious but decently done LAS LUCHADORAS CONTRO LA MOMIA) and, boy, i don't think I'll go further. This fiendish plot of paying ransoms for each barrel of petrol produced to a secret organization who wants to rule the world with robots (?????) is WAY beyond any fiendish plot ever made. The songs are crappy, looong and the lipsync bad enough to make you laugh and forget about the watch.The catch fights are very looooong (the first one last for more than 7 mn) and obviously some stock shots from previous santo movies have been used.

More holes in the plot than any swiss cheese (who cares about the pllot in a Santo movie anyway?), near-zero budget -the switchboard the girl uses at the beginning is same used but three different girls in three different places in the movie), bad acting, bad hairdos, El Cheapo!costumes, El Sleazo! big-breasted heroines, bad FX...depending on the mood you're in, it's either boring and annoying or cheesy fun. As for me, I began with choice n°2 but quickly the n°1 took over.

Superwonderscope says : 2

PS : the mexican copy has another title : Santo en el Oro Negro
