Trivia

The live action elements were shot over a six month period between June and December of 1987. Apart from one week of location work, all of the footage was shot in one big old building in western Toronto that used to be a bus depot. Not only were the sets build right there, but also the miniature work. According to the actors, it was unbearably hot during summer (crewmembers had to stand by with buckets of ice and wet towels) and freezing cold in winter. See more »

User Reviews

my favourite childhood serial
7 April 2001 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Captain Power and the soldier of the future was transmitted on Italian t.v. at the end of 80'.I think that this and Visitors was the best series of 80'.In this serial appears for the first time the use of digital special effects for example to create the unforgettable Soaron. The atmosphere is dark, but the plot has a good development. Certainly the actors are not perfect, sometimes seems like they are children who are playing. The best idea was the Power suits, when I was a child I dreamed to have one.This serial didn't have a lot of success in Italy, so it was transmitted just once and I'm still waiting for another. POWER ON
