Blackhawk was one of my favorite comic book characters as a child and this serial was eagerly awaited when announced that it was coming. We were all a little disappointed with the results. The lack of flying action was surprising and the planes were very ordinary. Kirk Allyn and John Crawford were great as the two lead Blackhawks but the casting of the others was off. This serial is average at best but probably good for Columbia. Sam Katzman definitely saved a few bucks by using the same locations over and over.
