Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 1225 ratings.
If you like action in your films, this is a must. Harken back to the days when life was simple and Saturdays at the Bijou was the most important thing on your agenda. The film quality is as if it was recently filmed. Clear with good audio. Watch in wonder as Comander Cody escapes death time and time again. New technology has nothing on the masters from years gone by. If you don't buy the bulk pack, at least get Volume 2. It will leave you wanting more.
You have to buy this movie! How can you not like a serial...where guys hats never come off their heads, even during fist-fights and when they hit each other over the heads with chairs? The aliens have these great weapons but, for some strange reason, they are dependent upon a couple of local, small-time hoods to carry out their evil plan! What a hoot! In fact, the guy who plays the government agent who shows up in Commando Cody's office every episode or two is more threatening-looking than the aliens! Commando Cody's complicated flight controls for his flying suit are hilarious (as are most of the accompanying sound effects). Best shots are his spaceship gliding over the back lot and his initial "jump" whenever he's on the trail of the Lone Ranger and his henchman. This serial will keep you howling!
I bought this on a whim, not really expecting too much for the price. Surprise! This transfer is clear and sharp. The sound is good and the music score helps keep the pace brisk. The story itself is a good cliffhanger; Commando Cody is a well-rounded hero (scientist, pilot, plus boxer/wrestler) saving Earth from the impending invasion. Clayton Moore, later the lead in the Lone Ranger, play one of the regular thugs here. One thing to note is that this is only half the serial. This is also part of a box set (with The Phantom Creeps and Flash Gordon), so if you're a chapter fan you may want to consider buying that instead.
