What a junk movie...
20 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is pure cheese, with no explanation of how the folks gain their powers. Freezy is assaulted and frozen in a block of ice. Suddenly she comes back to life with the power to create ice. The whole movie is like that. The special effects aren't very special. In fact they're horrible. Yes, I've seen the 1978 Superman. The effects there were way better than they are in this movie. The difference is Superman the Movie is approximately 25 years older than this film. Lots of goofs in this film too, for example, the guy with the hostage is wielding what is OBVIOUSLY a 6-shooter, yet he fires 7 shots at Captain Barbell.

This movie isn't made to be taken seriously of course, but they should have put more effort into it. If I trusted someone to do justice to my creation in film, they'd better do it right. Mr. Mars Ravelo is probably rolling over in his grave because of this film.
