This flick is so bad it's actually funny!

"The plot stinks, the dialogue is awful, and the acting wooden, yet this movie has its moments, i.e.,when the women kick butt and take names, and save the men (for once!) This is almost unheard of in the sci-fi & horror, or any other genre, for that matter, which makes it all the more enjoyable. Another great moment is The Golden Ruby's response to the little policeman when he tells her that he and his buddy with protect her. This is almost worth the price of the movie. If you like your action fast and cohesive, don't bother buying this movie. If you have a well developed sense of humor (or an equally well developed sense of irony) and don't mind sitting through the dull parts, or just like collecting cheeseball flicks, by all means, grab it."
The "Hidden Gem" of Mexican Cinema

"A magnificent work from our brothers and sisters to our south. Truly riveting in it's expression of 1960's contemporary Mexico. By that I mean a mad scientist's dream and a city's nightmare. Not many films of this era effectively use strong women to "defeat" evil as they did in this film. A risk taken full force with no hesitation. A true film noir treasure. Not to mention the ominous meanings in Gomar's "Special Equipment" and the good natured bafoonery of Tommy. He truly lightened the intense feeling of this film. Watch it if you dare!"
