Embittered by Superman's heroic successes and soaring popularity, Lex Luthor forms a dangerous alliance with the powerful computer/villain Brainiac. Using advanced weaponry and a special strain of Kryptonite harvested from the far reaches of outer space, Luthor specifically redesigns Brainiac to defeat the Man of Steel.
Well for one thing, this movie is not weird. It has the Filipino blend of comedy. Meaning it would be wacky, tons of slapstick, hilarious dialogue and of course a song or dance scene. This spoof of the popular Batman and Robin characters never let me down for a knee slapper. The costumes are poor imitations from the old Batman television series.
Joey De Leon's antics as Batman and his real life son as Robin was nothing but classic Filipino comedy.
Joker was the best villain in the movie. The laugh of his was immortalized by the late Rene Requiestas. While Tiyo Paenguin was played by one of the Philippines' top comedians, Panchito. The tandem works well and the on screen performance is nothing but short of laughs.
However corny or cheesy the movie gets, Filipino's comedic innovation is at its worst and best.
