A Power Hit of Entertainment!
10 April 2002 | by (Ramsey, Illinois) – See all my reviews

J-Men Forever is the epic tale of the Secret World War waged by the J-men against their alien nemesis, the Lightning Bug. Armed with trance inducing rock music and a nebula of hash smoke, the Lightning bug seeks to change the world's lifestyle before our very eyes.

The J-Men field a constellation of our nation's greatest heroes. Under the inspired leadership of Admiral Ballsey they struggle to thwart this menace.

The film features some fine stunt and model work.It's a real power hit of entertainment.

If you ever get an all too rare chance to view J-men, and you're not Mrs Grundy, grab it.

(It's so good i have to ration viewings for fear of wearing out the tape!)
