Did You Know?

Goofs:
Audio/visual unsynchronized: When rockets are fired from the submerged Mighty Jack, the sound effect is that of rockets firing into the sky, not that of torpedoes being launched under water. Upon their detonation we also hear explosions that one would only hear in the open air. The sound of the laser cannon being fired and subsequent explosions continue this sound error.See more »

The Citizen Kane of Japanese Movies, 5 April 2002
Author: (mikec32001@yahoo.co.uk) from London

Well, maybe not, but my oh my, isn't Mighty Jack getting a bad press! The simple fact is, the "movie" (it's nothing of the sort) has been soooo hacked about from its TV origins it's all you can do but sit back and either turn it off or enjoy the ride. See above for the basic outline of "plot" proceedings but, yes, it's pure trash. But here's why I like this video: the Gerry Anderson style models and effects. Along with so many otherwise disposal Jap flicks, this one is festooned with tasty technology and nifty effects that the script (and acting) is frankly not worthy to be seen with. Like Anderson, this film fetishises the Skydiver-alike Mighty Jack with repeated, dare I say lingering shots of it's various functions and ticks. OK, this kind of stuff only suffices for a distraction but if you enjoyed Derek Meddings water/model effects in "UFO" or you're a model nut, this is worth a look. Just a quick one, mind.
