LOS CAMPEONES JUSTICIEROS - Gustavo César Carrión - "The Champions Of Justice" (1971)

Tonight I've got a real Royale Rumble Saturday Night Special of a film for you starring the always popular culo-kicking Mexican wrassler Blue Demon!!
No time like the present to tell you that the cool music for this shindig was created by the Maestro Gustavo César Carrión, and it hits you like a cross between Dave Brubeck, Vince Guaraldi, and "Forbidden Planet!"  Here's a minute and a half to get you going!

This time he's got his whole crew along for the ride!!
Whether you want to call them The Champions Of Justice or The Avenging Champions doesn't matter! They might not have any super powers, but these guys would punch and kick some mutant ass to the very end!!

Blue Demon is the Captain of the gang because he has fought every conceivable enemy known to man including Satan, Zombies, Vampires, Wolfmen, Frankensteins, Mummies, attacks from outer space, and he has retained his championship each and every time!

Mil Máscaras is the third member of the Mexican wrasslin' royalty trilogy that also includes Santo, and Blue Demon! Mil has probably spent more time in the ring that a lot of people have even spent on the earth!

El Médico Asesino literally translates to "Medical Murderer" but I always thought his intended name was Dr. Death!

6' 3" and 240 pounds qualified as a giant back in 1971! Popular wrassler Tinieblas added some bulk to the team! Tinieblas traslates directly to "Darkness!"

The last member of the team is La Sombra Vengadora, or
The Avenging Shadow!

David (The Brainiac) Silva is the evil Mano Negro (The Black Hand)!
What a crybaby! "Blue Demon ruined my plans, whaa, whaa, whaa!"

Black hand has a few regular guys working for him like Black Shadow(not to be confused with good guy The Avenging Shadow), but most of his minions are a bunch of dwarfs! Black Hand has created ways to make the little guys as strong as ten men, so when the little shits gang up on Blue Demon and his pals, they really give them a hard time! Of course, it looks ridiculous as Hell, but what did you expect? They also never seem to get rich! He treats them like crap!

There's a beauty contest that includes all of the Champions beautiful God Daughters!

This guy looks totally batshit crazy as Hell!!

That diabolical cad Black Hand has kidnapped all the girls, freeze dried them and packed them in wooden crates to be shipped off somewhere for future use!
The little guys would like to try a frozen treat but Black Hand says no!

Black Hand has an amazing video monitoring system for 1971!

I thought the M stood for midget, but now that I think about it more, it's probably for the egocentric Mano Negro!!

Now if I was a police officer, and I stopped these guys, I might think that they looked a little suspicious, or is that just wrassler profiling?!

And I'll bet she couldn't live without that pool tile either! Wow!!

The Avenging Shadow wasn't a regular feature in these kinds of movies like Santo, Blue Demon, and Mils Mascaras!!! In fact he was only in one other movie! Maybe it has something to do with how totally stupid his mask can look at times and angles like this! Imbecile is right!

Classic shot of Mils Mascaras and Blue Demon in the men's room! 
"Dude, scoot over a little bit, you're pissing on my boot!"

No matter whether they are eating, sleeping, making love, or fighting, these guys are either wearing a suit and tie, or their tights, and they never take off  the masks!

This was the point where I had to back it up and watch this scene three or four times! Demon and the boys are having another long battle with the dwarfs, this time in Professor Black Hand's lab. I couldn't get a good shot of it, but they toss one of the little guys up and across the room head first into that electrical panel you see on fire! Totally toasted his ornery little ass! Unbelievable and hilarious!

To the victors go the spoils, and the girls are all returned to their families, because, after all this IS a family movie!!

If you ever want to have a party with nothing but lots of action and cool music on in the background, then "Los Campeones Justicieros" is the perfect movie for you! If they took out all the fight and chase scenes, this movie would be about 15 minutes long instead of almost an hour and a half! I found this copy at the Internet Archive, but if it's still there or not, your guess is as good as mine. Those things seem to come and go as fast as yesterday and tomorrow!
