| Worth watching only just for the great Steve Reeves...
The five stars I gave this are for it's exaggerated value because it's really pretty baaaaaaaad. I mean, Steve was always quick to admit that he was never a GREAT actor but I always thought he was pretty good, but honestly - with dialog like this, what was he supposed to do?

When I first heard of this, I thought it was a pilot for a film, but it's the first of what would have been 13 episodes of a serial. What makes this even peculiar was that its producers wanted to make a classic, old-fashioned serial for TV, complete with cliffhanger endings, only they were shooting for a time slot of just 15 minutes (!) and so the leftover we have is just 12 minutes or so. This is it unfortunately, and so we will never EVER know what happens next as this was the only episode actually filmed, because they lacked the funding to make any more of this. So that's it.

Conclusion - It's fun to watch, though, even if Steve swings from a vine that looks suspiciously like a rope. I just wonder how the rest of the story would have turned out .... Worth watching only just for the great Steve Reeves...

Rated this 5/10
