Our masked superman can't hold on to this terrible movie much longer!
9 April 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

A hero IS nothing but a sandwich! Especially when a guy in black tights can't show off his boldness and super strength like every other comic book marvel! I'm glad I caught this obscure superhero film on late-night TV, though. In fact, SUPERARGO would have been, at the very least, a camp classic had it been aired on MST3K. It's quite a shock that movies were actually getting better by 1967, but still, this atrocious experience in crimefighting offers the "BIFF!"s, "WHAM!"s, "SOCK!"s, and "POW!"s in a distorted array of action-packed excitement. A horde of "faceless giants" goes after our demented hero, and nails them down with fists, only to make the movie look terrible. And where did the story go? If this is the kind of originality you'd expect for a movie like SUPERARGO, you'd probably think the actor wearing a red suit would've done the same like Popeye The Sailor. But this is a superhero-style movie, and it has a small hint of visual effects. It's a pity that it's no better than the famous legends of Batman & Company. Until the final round comes, this flick's gonna be knocked out cold in a matter of a first few minutes! Give it a shot if you desperately love movies without good taste.
