Santo Salvation.
3 January 2010 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

Santo, the favorite Mexican action hero (besides Mario Almada) gets into a new and more dangerous quest. This time he should face a super evil villain who is not the diabolical ax as suggested but oh well, you hve to watch it to understand!.

Santo's origin and purpose is explained although not in a satisfying manner but it should please some die hard fans. Think about "Batman Begins" but in a less fashion way.

Santo looks badass and even when walking slowly while investigating inside the castle.

He has now more magic tricks. As if his wrestling techniques weren't enough!

Sure, you can say all you want about the cheese factor but this time it tried to be less obvious. I mean, the direction, cinematography, and f/x were intended to be stylish and that's always something good.

Not the best Santo effort but it's a great addition to his great legacy.
