Surface level earth is threatened by Atlantis (which incidently sits
just off the Pacific coast of Mexico), so some international security
organisation sends all-around genius professor Gerard (Rafael Banquells)
to Mexico to get in touch with the organisation's local top agent - who
just happens to be championship wrestler Santo. Santo is presently in the
midst of a match against his friend Blue Demon, but then Blue Demon is
kidnapped by the Atlanteans halfway through the fight. Later though, Blue
Demon returns and claims he has escaped Atlantis, but it soon becomes
apparent he has been brainwashed by Atlantean leader Olvrich (Jorge Rado),
a former Nazi out to create a new master race. Santo defeats Blue Demon
when Blue Demon wants to kidnap him, but Blue Demon escapes.
Santo is contacted by fellow agent X25 (Magda Giner), a beautiful blonde
who tells him she knows to Atlantis and leads him there - but once in
Atlantis, Santo is captured, and X25 turns out to be an Atlantean top
agent. Santo is soon prepared for hypnosis ...
Professor Gerard readies
his missile defense system to thwart an imminent Atlantean missile attack,
when Santo shows up to crash his lab. Then another Santo shows up and
kills the first Santo. Turns out the original Santo has been saved from
hypnosis by Juno (Silvia Pasquel), an Atlantean girl with a conscience -
which doesn't quite explain the fake Santo who crashed the lab, but never
mind. Soon, Blue Demon shows up and starts a fight with Santo, but Santo
defeats him again and then the professor puts him out of his hypnotic
state. Now, Santo, Blue Demon, Juno and the professor all head to Atlantis
to blow it up for good. Juno has to die her hero's death in the process,
but other than that, everything ends happily - with a blast.
this film is stupid as hell, a cross of science fiction and espionage
elements forced into the context of a Mexican wrestling movie, and its
special effects, lifted from Japanese monster flicks like Atragon, Kaiju
Monster Zero and Godzilla vs the Sea
Monster, don't sit too well with the rest of the movie,
stylistically - but that said, the film is also immense fun thanks to its
nonsense plot, its low budget approach to a big budget topic, and its
insistence on masked wrestlers to carry the story. Of course, that doesn't
make this film an intellectual masterpiece of any kind, but a great party
movie best watched with a couple of mates and a couple of beers.
