  • Plays like an anthology of the best parts from all the Saturday matinee serials ever made. show more

  • An adventure film that plays like an old-time 12-part serial that you see all at once, instead of Saturday-to-Saturday. It's a modern "Thief of Baghdad." It's the kind of movie that first got you excited about movies when you were a kid. (Translation for today's children: It's better than anything on TV.) [12 June 1981] show more

  • Has all the right ingredients: a smart script, a likable hero, a dash of romance, more than a touch of comedy, and a lot of fast-paced action. show more

    It was exciting...but the violence was a little flat and pathetic. But wonderful job!
