Movie Reviews

A very poor transfer
Jeffrey B. Griffith | Fredericksburg, Va United States | 08/02/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this as I enjoyed Dave O'Brien in the Captain Midnight Serial. Unfortunately the print for this DVD is very poor. Most images are washed out to the point identifying the different actors can be difficult at times. In fact it finally got the best of me, and I did not finish watching it. Old serials like these from the non-surviving studios must be rare and good prints even rarer. It is doubtful it would be economically viable to restore this one or others like it. The main hope here is if one of the volunteer projects funded by donations and a few of the studios decides to tackle these. Until then I would not recommend this one to anyone except for the collector that just has to have every serial available."
Very poor quality
Ray Doyle | West Chester, PA United States | 07/14/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Under the best of circumstances this would be difficult to follow as the plot jumps all over the place. This dvd edition had not been remastered and is dark and murky to the point that the characters can not be identified. Save your money. Buying this is a total waste. It is not very good to begin with and the difficulty one experiences in trying to watch it is very frustrating."
