A somewhat underwhelming start for El Santo.
13 September 2019 | by MonsterVision99See all my reviews

There isnt really anything special about "Cerebro del Mal" except for the fact that its the first Santo film. Its a very typical mad doctor flick with some luchadores thrown in. Decent performances by the main cast and entertaining fighting sequences are some of the best aspects of this movie.

Its very obvious that El Santo wasnt being made into a star yet, his voice isnt even dubbed like in later films, he just falls into the background for most of this movie. People driving, sneaking around and kidnapping others are some of the things that take most of the screentime, not the best or most enjoyable entry but its enough to keep you amused.
