Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: When Puma Man and Kobras are fighting inside the castle, the shot of Puma Man smashing through the wall begins early enough that you can clearly see the hole in the wall has been cut for him, notably the "stone" cut perfectly around his head. He was obviously set up with his head through the wall (like a clown cut-out at the beach) and cued to walk through the flimsy cardboard, because no debris falls before the shot.See more »
Quotes:
Kobras:The man who control the destiny of the world will be here! When the world is mine, I alone will decide whether it is to be war or peace, life or death, according to the New Order which I shall establish!See more »

Is there a pumaman, 31 January 2000
Author: Umblezi from Brisbane, Australia

This movie is perfect in every way. The music is great, especially when pumaman flies. And the way he flies is so realistic, I can't believe this was made in 1980. He has to be the best superhero ever- his flying, his puma vision, and his hands are claws. And Kobras - can you possibly imagine a better villain? His suit alone makes me nervous. And most of all, the acting is superb- the whole film is so lifelike, that sometimes I think there really are pumamen. 10 out of 10, no question.
