El triunfo de los campeones justicieros (1974)

Yet another masked wrestling movie I saw in Spanish with out subtitles.

This one concerns small people from space trying to take over the world and the masked wrestlers who try to stop them. It all takes place around a circus so we get scenes set in the circus. The villains also turn their slaves in to a green goo when they wish to dispose of them.

I'm not sure what I think.

I know its an amusing 80 minutes if you know what you're getting. Certainly this is lower budget and more silly than the black and white Santo films they used to run dubbed on late night TV and on the USA network. I liked it, but I wish that the fights didn't seem as staged as they do. Perhaps this may have been better had it been dubbed or subtitled, but I think not. I some how think this is just a very silly, but entertaining, film aimed at kids.

Look for it in the nearest dollar bin.
