Storyline

The organization Mighty Jack is formed to combat the criminal syndicate known as "Q", and are given a large array of advanced weapons, chief among them being a high-tech submarine. Harold Hatari is abducted by Q, and Mighty Jack is dispatched to rescue him. Hatari is interrogated and threatened with blinding lights, but the Mighty Jack crew rescue him in the nick of time. Later, Q is discovered to be using "hot ice" (water that remains solid at room temperature) to create weapons and a secret ocean base disguised as an iceberg (though it's not precisely clear how hot ice could be a major world threat). Q then attempts to take over the Mighty Jack sub. Written by Leo L. Schwab <ewhac@best.com>

Your jaw will drop at the stark badness of this film. Really.
10 January 2001 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

I can't tell you how many times I've watched this trying to make out the "plot". I'm used to watching bad Japanese movies so I can stomach that part, it's the rest of the film that amazes me. I honestly can't believe how a film this bad could be released. Obviously this was made out of a bad TV series, but that show had to make SOME kind of sense, didn't it? I've heard only the first and last episodes were used for this, what happened to the others? Didn't anybody care enough to at least give some indication of those? (Well, actually, I wouldn't have cared that much, so the decision is mostly justified). Besides the "story", the dubbing is totally sickening, the special effects weren't even passable, and it's just the whole experience. A real exercise in bad movie-making, avoid at all costs.
