It's really Mandroid 2 in disguise
6 January 2004 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Essentially a sequel to the lackluster Mandroid. During a scuffle with Drago, Benjamin Knight was accidentally rendered invisible and his pals are allegedly trying to restore him to normal. Wade certainly wasn't working too hard on the problem. He was busy developing a pair of special sunglasses that enable the wearer to control the Mandroid. Meanwhile, Zanna went from brunette to blonde. Drago, thought to be dead is very much alive and has set up shop in an old asylum. There he finds a small army of empty-headed lunatics willing to do his bidding. For reasons that escape me, he kidnaps women and imprisons them in the asylum. He forces them to do table dances for him and his men. The ugly Drago still wants the formula for the supercon element. Drago is not alone, a doctor at the hospital that Ben was in reports to Colonel Petroff, the local police chief, about Ben's invisibility. Petroff wants the secret so now he and Drago go after Zanna. It's up to wheel chair Wade and the Invisible Ben to save her and foil the evil Drago and despotic Petroff.

This movie is cheesy, corny, and misleading. It's full of improbable villains, pseudo cliffhangers, and sci-fi hokum. Based on the title one would expect it to concern Benjamin Knight and his invisibility. Instead, it's a continuation of the boring Mandroid story, tarted up with peripheral adult subject matter and a nude scene. It aims to deliver fast-paced action and a minimum of technobabble and succeeds to a degree. On the other hand, it suffers from too many subplots and horny lunatics are not exactly my idea of comic relief.
