One of the best superhero movies ever made (really)... Unjustly scuttled 20 years ago, it's a wonderfully weird cult classic whose time has come.
Rambunctiously entertaining... Philippe Mora's off-the-wall superhero action comedy was postmodern and self-aware way before it was cool.
All fans of the superhero genre are strongly advised to check it out... Arkin is wonderful, Lee is brilliant, and the fight in the delicatessen is one of the all-time classic comedy battles in film history.
—Eye For Film
One of the best and most underrated superhero spoofs... A clever and sophisticated parody whose basic premise was later taken without credit by HANCOCK.
There's nothing else quite like it... An indescribable action-hero movie that alternately recalls DR. STRANGELOVE and THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW.
