“This is the second Santo film, shot in Cuba the same time as the first one.  A secret agent infiltrates a gang of drug smugglers and Santo appears out of the ocean to deliver some choice haymakers.  That’s pretty much the plot.  It’s a total mess of a movie filled with mistakes (wait a minute… the police lieutenant is the boss of the drug smugglers?), the implausible (2 cops purposely shot by undercover cops.  Crazy, right?  Implausibility in a Santo film), filler (did we really need a 4 minute long scene with Mr. Cury when his only purpose in the story is moving a book of matches 10 feet across a room?), characters that never materialize (the fuck happened to Mr. Canseco?), and scenes repeated from the first film (really I’m just uploading these things to try and get Lo Que Quieras Tu by the Trio Servando Diaz permanently embedded in your brain).  As with Santo film #1 this was mostly shot on actual locations and has some great footage of Cuba, including a final showdown at the deserted Coney Island Park (!).  Also features the fetching Gina Romand who would meet up with Santo again in Profanadores de Tumbas, where she gets attacked by her own wig.” [NickTheCreep]
