| Another dreary Cisco Kid film from Monogram
Arturo and his sister, Maria, are an odd casting choice, as he has a very strong Mexican accent and she has none! Carmelita might just be the stupidest supporting character, as repeatedly she says the wrong thing and has trouble reading her lines. Such are the characters you'll find in this installment of the Cisco Kid franchise from poverty row studio, Monogram Pictures. Like most of Monogram's films, this one features poor writing, acting and a slow and leisurely pace. Don't look for too many exciting moments in this film--you just won't find any.

The film is about a gang of thieves who just happen to be the sheriff and his friends. So, while many crimes are quickly solved, those involving the gang are suspiciously unsolved. So, it's up to the Cisco Kid to come to save the day and expose Arturo and the rest for the scum that they are. In other words, it takes a bandit to catch a bandit.

If you liked the older Cisco Kid films with Warner Baxter and Cesar Romero, the Monogram films just can't compare. My advice is just stop watching them when the franchise switched to Monogram--they just didn't seem to care if the films were well made or not.
