Sebastian (Dagoberto Rodríguez), once a loyal follower of Hitler but now conspiring with the Russians because he considers the Americans to be responsible for the Nazis' downfall, has Nazi scientist Dr Muller (Juan Gallardo) kidnapped to develop a brainwashing drug. You know, Sebastian has training camps set up in Santo Domingo, with the trainees all thinking they're just there for Judo lessions, none of them knowing they're actually supposed to be sent to the US for acts of terrorism - hence they need to be brainwashed. Now there's one problem with Dr Muller, his face is on a watchlist and is too prominent to be smuggled into the US - so Sebastian has ace plastic surgeon Dr Thomas' (Carlos Hennings) daughter (Elsa Cárdenas) kidnapped to force him to work on Muller.

This hasn't escaped the attention of Interpol chief Topacio (César del Campo), but since he hasn't got any evidence to go on, he turns to his top agents, Ana Silva (Lorena Velázquez) and masked wrestler Santo (Santo) to investigate. Sebastian's men soon notice they are being followed, and by whom, too, but since Ana is rather quick with the gun and Santo used to wrestle people down, they fail time and again to kill their adversaries. Eventually, Santo and Ana find a trail leading to one of Sebastian's training camps, this one exclusively for girls, and Ana infiltrates the camp, soon making friends with one of the girls there, Debbie (Patricia Ferrer), who just happens to be the sister of camp owner Otto (Guillermo Gálvez), who doesn't share his ideology though. However, Otto and his partner Elke (Roxana Bellini) soon find out she's a spy and thus make her their captive and bait for Santo. It almost succeeds, too, but nobody anticipated that Debbie would take the side of her friend Ana in this, and ultimately it's her who frees Ana and helps her and Santo overcoming the baddies and let them help their just desserts.

 

Mision Suicida is certainly not as mad or as campy as Santo's wilder horror-themed outings from the early 1970's, it's more a poor man's James Bond, but at that at least it's some fun, combining some rather sub-standard stunt scenes with gun-wielding babes, a stupid premise with stupid plot twists and the like. Not a great movie, probably not even a great Santo-movie ... but fun to watch nevertheless - at least if you're a fan of films like this.
