This film is interesting in that it covers some of the same territory as Scanners (psycho-kinetic empowered mutants who are outcasts in human society) as well as containing a touch of Star Wars and the Force (Kenobi-like ESP guru) before either of those movies were made. At times the dialogue is laughable, at other times it is rather profound (especially in the last speech by the villain). Goofy too (watch for the black heavy who dresses like Shaft but wears a white surgical mask that is never explained--at least in the dubbed version). Or the guy trapped in the car who uses his gun to shoot at the door lock--not the window--to escape.
Cheetah the german shepherd (and wonder dog) steals the show.
