Storyline

After an accident, a government agent Daniel Leight, gains the ability of super-speed and goes after an old friend turned Nemesis. Lightspeed's scaly nemesis is a mutated terrorist half-man, half-snake called Python. But when Leight's radiation treatments are sabotaged, he discovers that he has the ability to move at hyper speeds only by risking potentially fatal metabolic damage.

Should have been Called 'Python'
26 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For starters,if I had to venture a guess, I think Stan Lee only created the characters, which are pretty good, in general. The director, while highly competent, can't save this terrible screenplay. For Pete's sake, this was written by the same scribe as Jack-O. Ecch! How do these guys get into the business? Anyway, this entire film would have been much better if the Python character became the superhero (He could have fought crime by night and then shed his snake skin the next day). A highly forgettable hero, poor sound, lame fights, a story line that depicts events that should have happened at night going on in the day, and the lack of any discernible city-scape work are too much for solid actors and nice make up to overcome. Better luck next time, folks.
