If you are looking for a thought provoking masterpiece to inspire you this certainly is not the movie for you. This is the perfect getaway for those rainy Saturday afternoons when you are looking for mindless entertainment, and thats what this movie delivers. This Saturday serial is full of all the bad acting, worn out cliches and lousy special effects which makes it so fun to watch. People will find this movie quite dated, even "Ming the Merciless" is a nice guy by todays standards, but that only adds to the charm and innocence of the experience. This will never make any top ten list, but certainly it is entertaining and campy enough to make it cult classic.
