A film that should never have been made with as much money. The car is great and the concept of a funny take on a serious super hero is, on paper, a good chuckle. I’m convinced if this was a low budget affair there would have been more time spent on the direction and laughs and it could have been a cult classic. Why not?

Well, the result is a long-winded, overly ambitious action feature that doesnt sit comfortably in any camp so you just get bored. Seth isnt the guy to deliver the lines here and there’s no buy-in to anything. I just didn’t care. Even Christoph’s attempt to ham it up wasn’t enough to save anything.

Stick to the radio show.

Keep DVD?


Watch if on TV?
