Copying Tim Burton's Batman but with a beautiful actress and in a B-movie: the result was not bad as you may expect
The Batman-style story of the super heroine (with the difference that she is originally a cop, not a millionaire) is nice and it is well done, especially if you consider the TV B-movie budget.
The action scenes are not always the best and the special effects are generally poor, but these are not major problems either. The serious flaw is that most of the villains (precisely the most important ones) are ridiculous, badly developed and portrayed by bad actors.
It is worth mentioning that there is a strong influence of Tim Burton's Batman movies over this film, with scenes that are clearly inspired/copied, such as the one similar to Michele Pfeiffer's kiss/lick in "Batman Returns" and the one in which we can see an acid pool like that from "Batman" (besides, off course, the black mask, the gadgets, the father's murder, the customized car...). Though, there is at least one unforgettable scene which you cannot see in "Batman": what happens a little bit after the first hour of the film is amazing... She is perhaps the most beautiful and sexiest super heroine ever.
