George Wallace is Commando Cody, Sky Marshal of the Universe, although the title seems to be largely symbolic. He does not patrol the airways with a fleet of heavily armed, brutally efficient sky deputies at his side, riding the solar winds as he snuffs out all those who would stand in his way of preserving peace and tranquillity throughout the universe. He does, however, have two fairly loyal office assistants. When a series of explosions rock America's defense systems (by way of stock footage of dams toppling and trains derailing), the U.S. calls on Cody to investigate. Cody, with absolutely no evidence or information presented to him, immediately guesses that the attacks are coming from the moon. The government agent agrees and Cody and his pals are off on their wacky adventure, piling into a rocket shop equipped with office furniture(!). At first, Cody's curvaceous assistant Joan is instructed to remain on earth because of the danger, but she rightly points out that if she doesn't come along, the men won't have anyone to make coffee for them, so Cody, evoking his powers under the charter of the Sky Marshals union, grants her request. Inasmuch as the moon is only approximately 239,000 miles from the earth, Cody's rocket makes the trip in about three or four minutes, and - in a happy coincidence - just happens to land a few yards from the lunar city, which is movingly portrayed by the lost city from the early Republic serial DARKEST AFRICA. If you're hoping Bonga the Gorilla will be around, though, we're sorry. The depth and feeling he brought to his role are sorely missed by the actors in THIS chapterplay.
In the lunar city, Cody meets Retik, supreme leader, portrayed by Diana Ross. Ummm, no, wait, that was the OTHER Supreme leader.

It is easy to review the serial itself, but I shall review this particular release first.

The DVD's are great and it is very nice to have for watching this serial. If you are thinking of getting this serial, get this set.

Now, for the serial itself. Yes, it has elements that would be considered "cheesy" or otherwise not so great by today's standards. However, it has all the elements that are found in most movies. The fight seens are unrealistic, in that people have a slugging fest, and no one ever gets hurt (sometimes, they pass out for a couple of seconds). The fight seens of this sort are found all through out this time period (in cowboy movies especially). However, modern movies do the same thing in reverse, unrealistic fight seens with CGI and too much flair (and as always, fight seens are longer than real life).

The technology portrayed is from the 50's perspective. Judge it, and you have to judge every movie, even modern ones (in the future).

The moon is from the pre-moon landing era and is very earthlike. It is rocky and desert, but with a blue sky. This was not a problem back then, because no one actually ever was on the moon.

I got this because I watched this serial was I was very young (5-6) and I wanted to watch it again as an adult.

OK, a fun serial released the year of my birth. Moon men, Rocket ship/s, art deco design cool looking lab machines. a flying heroic scientist and inventor of the flying suit, when he wears it he is known as COMMANDO CODY, Sky Marshall of the Universe who ' flies 'in long shots by the same method created for the 1941 serial ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN MARVEL, a lifesize mannequin sliding down (or up depending on the camera trick) a wire but it looks cool to me. Moon men want to invade the Earth and send their first group to prepare the way. Only ONE man can hope to stop them (since this serial does'nt have Superman, Batman or any other heroes): Commando Cody who by the way is a basic human BUT maybe more of a 007 James Bond type human so he stands a chance. Glorious B&W with slam bang action but NOT modern movie hairy chested action mind you. Kids may watch lots of R rated movies today but in 1952, there were hardly any movies like these then and Cody was a family type action adventure movie in 12 or more parts with cliffhangers. A cliffhanger was where at the end of a part, someone usually the hero or one of the hero's friends looked like they might die and so you had to see the next part to see what happens. If you ever get the chance, see KING OF THE ROCKET MEN too, the first Commando Cody serial.

This review refers to the Whirlwind Media DVD of Radar Men. I gather from other reviews that there was a Roan version which I'm sure was better. As for the serial itself, if you grew up watching Commando Cody and dreaming of flying with your own rocket suit, you'll enjoy this. Acting and dialong are, well, passible and there are some great Art Deco props left over from Flash Gordon & Buck Rogers. Alas, the video quality is wretched. Perhaps not as bad as a Madacy DVD but close. Still, the flying scenes are great--Commando Cody is surprisingly graceful.

My VHS transfer of Radar Men From The Moon, which is twenty years old, puts this DVD version to shame. This low resolution print is noisy and washed out. Commando Cody's next adventure should be to find and destroy all the existing Whirlwind DVDs.
