    This sci-fi TV movie has stayed embedded in my subconscious ever since I was a kid and I was desperate to find and watch it again. I loved superhero movies and the like back then and I was oblivious to cheesy films, terrible plots, laughable dialogue and poor acting. Obviously this film holds a certain nostalgia for me and therefore I am somewhat biased towards it. It's very 80's, especially in terms of it's special effects, even down to the catchy electronic music score which sounds a little like John Carpenter. However inept and ridiculous the film may get it's still an enjoyable piece of trash.
