The film could definitely be better. Most of its scenes are edited weird, with abrupt ends and transitions. The story runs like Mary and The Witches Flower but gets boring/predictable towards the end. Its run time also seems drug out at two hours.

This film should appeal to anyone who has ever built a model from a Mechano set, and then smashed it to bits with a hammer. Lots of fun if you enjoy rampant destruction; and there is also the usual moralizing about Science being perverted by unscrupulous, greedy entrepreneurs. Not a great film, but it "blows up real good!"
