Martians - men and women with long white hair, silver boots, belts and capes and ridiculous helmets - come to earth - Mexico that is - to threaten it's annihilation should it not give up war altogether and start living in peace. Naturally these earthlings will do nothing of the sort, so the Martians spread terror using their disintegrator ray. But there's one man who stands between the Martians and the destruction of earth ... the masked wrestler Santo of course, who wrestles down the Martians every time he meets them.

And what do our Martians do ? Use their disintegrator ray on the wrestler to get rid of him once and for all ?

Nope, they decide that they must capture Santo and his brilliant scientist friend Professor Ordorica (Manuel Zozaya), who has an answer to everything, alive and take them back to Mars.

But no matter what the Martians try, be it to face him in the wrestling arena or be it by sending him two beautiful female Martians who try to hypnotize him, Santo always escapes their traps and finds out more and more about their weapons ...

Still, the Martians are quite successful in abducting other people - including eventually Professor Ordorica - and soon not only have quite a collection of specimens, but they also have struck fear into the Mexicans, and soon nobody dares going out anymore ... nobody but Santo thta is, who lures the Martians into the wrestling arena for a final bout - where he steals their breathing pills and one of their teleporter belts, and soon enough he has entered their UFO, freed all the humans and blown up the UFO.

And with that threat gone, the earthlings can once again wage all the war they want ... hey wait a minute !


Two things up front: Santo films are always a bit silly (but often in a good way), and alien invasion flicks are also a bit silly most of the time (but silly in a good way as well'), so when Santo battles an alien invasion, it's hardly surprising that this is not a film to take too seriously ...

Still, if you like Mexican wrestling pictures and silly sci fi, you might find this one quite amusing (despite an over-reliance on wrestling that is not imminent in all Santo movies), and if you haven't forgotten how to laugh, you will be entertained.

Best seen with a few beers and a few mates.
