Storyline

The ever-so mellow Agent Sam Casey is in a satellite explosion and the radiation turns him invisible. He gets a watch that keeps him visible, and he can use it to switch from visible to invisible. He is given two assignments - The first is to transport a chemical, Tripolydine, purported to be the most efficient fuel. After the cover is blown on that, and Casey uncovers and stops the Tripolydine fraud, he must then stop terrorist Robert Denby from blowing up race cars. Written by Rebo Valence <rebo1234@aol.com>

Trivia

This movie was pieced together from two episodes of the failed Gemini Man (1976) TV series, plus some computer room footage and sound effects from the science fiction film Colossus: The Forbin Project (1970). See more »

Goofs

A villain cuts the brake line of the "Central Moving" truck that Sam Casey is driving. The truck, however has air brakes - which are engaged only when the brake system is charged - cutting the brake line on air brake would cause all brake shoes to engage and stop the truck dead. See more »

Did we need this "movie"?
21 December 1998 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

Certainly not. This, the Master Ninja stuff, and two Kolchak movies (Crackle of Death, and Demon & The Mummy) display the odd penchant for taking two bad episodes of a TV show and stitching them together into one crummy movie. The strategy behind this is the studio wants to save the good episodes for separate syndication, so whoever makes these movies takes the worst episodes and stitches them together. I'm old enough to have seen Gemini Man, and these _are_ the worst episodes of that series, which displayed a modicum of intelligence at the best of times. They deliberately pick out the worst episodes to save the best for syndication, and the result is this unwatchable crap.
