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>

Oh no, what is happening, fire lasers, I will just close my eyes...more random things!
13 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

This film is another put together television show like Time of Apes and is once again done by Sandy Frank. Although I am certain he let a child do the editing, because while I was able to get a feel for what was happening in Time of Apes, here at times I had to ask myself "What is going on?". Still, there was enough randomness to really take your mind off the fact there was very little effort made to make this into a coherent plot. Mighty Jack is the name of an organization and its giant flying super submarine that turns an awful lot. Their opposition is the deadly Q organization, which is lead by a vaguely Italian man with a white kitty cat, because if your bad you are going to have a kitty cat or something to that effect. Well during the first part of the film, this evil organization kidnaps a man with intricate knowledge of Mighty Jack, and you will learn in this segment that apparently Japanese men have to open their eyes at some point no matter what. During the next segment, Q has developed an ice that does not melt...the fiends! At the end of both segments battles occur as the deadly submarine jet thing bombs places to smithereens! Then you have way to much people doing this or that, scenes seemingly randomly put together, and just an all out bore. Hard to say if this one would be more entertaining had it not been cut up or not. I can say this version though is bad and very confusing.
