Biologist by day and super hero Relampago by night, a man helps his hometown to get rid of the evil, greedy rancher that wants to control the whole region.
3 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

Relampago may not be the best movie but it is close enough. It is too corny and cheesy to be taken seriously. Still, it is fun to watch. The script is especially bad and the action scenes are not awesome. The helicopter scene is pretty uninspired. Yet, the over the top acting by the love interest of Relampago combined with the worst one liners ever to grace Mexican cinema make up for the other issues. They loaded the movie with comics but waste them in inane characters. They also have serious actors who deliver their lines in a funny way. Maribel Laguardia is the prime example. The soap opera starlet creates a character that is irritant and funny for the wrong reasons, not the best characterization for a damsel in distress. Relampago has a black truck named Matilde - no kidding- and what you know? They kick rich, evil ass effortlessly. Another bright spot in the movie is the rich guy's brother. Apparently in Mexican B-movies is not enough to have hordes of hired guns and the police in your side. You also need an evil biker brother and his evil biker bang. I know there is a plot somewhere hiding but it doesn't matter because a)an evil rancher, evil biker and a truck named Matilde are more important than any plot and b)the plots do not make any sense. This movie is fun but don't take it too seriously
