Spanish director Juan Piquer Simon (Pieces) took elements of current box-office hits like Superman and Star Wars and came up with this campy adventure-fantasy. Michael Coby is Kronos, a strange visitor from another planet who, disguised as a mild-mannered private eye, fights crazed mad scientist Dr. Gulk (Cameron Mitchell) and flirts with Lois Lane-manque Diana Polakow. Much of the film resembles those old Mexican wrestling movies, with some mildly impressive special effects to spruce it up. It's not really campy enough to be fun, but there is enough action to keep kids and undemanding genre fans interested.
