Release Date: 1992
Weirdly, even IMDb doesn’t have much info on this release, which is why I have barely any info in the credits section.
Also, this isn’t really a documentary like I had hoped it would be. It sort of starts out as one and then it is just a collection of trailers from old school action serials.
Now I love old school action serials and I have reviewed more than a dozen since starting this site back in November of 2016 but I would like to know more about them, their development and how the whole system worked from a production standpoint.
This “documentary” doesn’t tap into that and unless you want to watch 90 minutes worth of trailers, it’s sort of a waste of time. Honestly, I’d rather just watch the serials themselves.
So it’s hard to review this but I wanted to let everyone know what this is if they happen to come across it streaming for free on Amazon Video.
If anyone knows of a good documentary on old school action serials, please let me know in the comments. I’d love to see one and review it.
Pairs well with: The actual serials it features.
