| Another cheezy, B+W tortilla of Mexican wrestling
Another cheezy, B+W tortilla of Mexican wrestling hokum with Wolf Rubinski as the black masked super scrapper Neutron. This sadly dull, nearly lame episode opens with night club singer Margi (Gina Romand) butchering a tune. Then, after refusing to bail out her skag sister (in debt to mobsters), the sister is kidnapped by a bad guy dressed like Zorro who then murders her with a big knife and films it!! (early Mexican snuff?). Margi then goes to the police and we watch the plot unravel (it's about a maniac, a mental hospital and a mysterious..... nothing) and then Neutron shows up, nearly punches people, seldom fights extra's, watches the parade of quirky suspects go about their business, doesn't wear his patented lightning bolt mask (why? why?) and sits on a lot of desks while chatting to the person sitting behind the desk. Margi also belts out a few more numbers to extend the running time of what's barely enuff story for 30 minutes. And, despite the appearance of a 'fake' blind man, a doctor with a funny pointy beard, more snuff murders and the line "Don't move, I'm a master of Judo and all that jazz" this is a limping entry, even by Neutron's standards. Where's Dr. Caronte? Where's the atomic bombs 'n' wrestling zombies? ZZZzzz.
