Quotes

Professor Morgan: Why must you persist in this reckless folly? What advantage can you gain from the illusion of power you can neither understand or successfully control? Don't you realize that moral forces greater than yourself will ensure that your attempt at usurpation of supreme power must fail?
Gulik: You dream, old man. And it's a bad dream! Morality, what the hell is that? Good over evil? Morality is finished. It's over! So naive. Who? Who will stop me? Not this foolish man in red with the blue face. Not this ...

All hail the mighty Supersonic!
19 March 2002 | by (Saint Louis, Missouri) – See all my reviews

Me and my high school dog pack caught this movie by chance one late night on Channel 44 in the Bay Area. Perhaps by devine intervention, I hit the record button and got the whole film on tape. It provided us and our respective families with endless laughs. We even composed a song/chant out of some of our favorite lines that we would recite religiously in the park at night (This is true San Jose-style recreation!!) Highlights? The terrifying killer robot that displayed the speed and swiftness of a cheetah! That devastating glare of Supersonic's evil nemesis as he monitors his underlings' treacherous deeds. The timeless beauty and personal complexity of Supersonic's love interest, Patricia Morgan. And the special effects -- especially the balsa wood steamroller, realistic-looking toy helicopter and the seamless camera work the director achieved whenever Paul morphs into Supersonic. To the uninitiated: May the forces of the universe be with you in your quest to see this movie!!
