Simple and not exactly deep but entertaining
7 August 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is the sort of film you could easily imagine folks (especially kids) enjoying on a Saturday morning at the theater back in the day. While the film has very little depth to the plot, it is the sort of action film that would fit in nicely with the movie serial and B-western crowd.

A boy (Junior Coghlan) is sent to live with a crusty old sea captain. The old guy seems pretty nice EXCEPT he has a bizarre hatred for fliers...and his niece has fallen for one of them! But before the pair can elope, some baddies show up and try to steal the strongbox...and when they can't find it, they kidnap the girl! So, it's up to her brave fiancé and the boy to spring to the rescue.

The film has lots of wild stunts near the end and works well as a silent film. While it's characters are very thinly written, you don't really need a ton of depth to these folks in an action film...and this film is full of action and well choreographed stunts.
