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.

Stan Lee has too much free time
2 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

Lightspeed is about a superhero, not unlike the excellent TV super hero, Flash, but with a lot less "flash". Python, his nemesis has great makeup, terrible lines and not a great super villain, who provides the typical strains of a bad guy gone rampant. Lightspeed is one of the worst movies I have had the displeasure of watching since Alien Apocalypse. Mr. Lee is one person I have the greatest respect for, especially with his Spiderman and Hulk movies showing some excitement, but Lightspeed is a dud at best. I had trouble watching the poor acting, and the actor, Connery, although Sean Connery's son and a good actor, just couldn't make this movie click for me. The plot was typical and droll, and the imagination of the special defects ( I mean effects) are silly and graphically lacking anything close to exciting. I would think Stan Lee could have done more with it and maybe have done a remake of Flash with a bit more flair and improved special effects, a plot, and better acting. All in all, Lightspeed is not worth watching a second time. Stick to Who Wants to be a Superhero, this movie is not even laughable, but leaves one to only groan and remain disappointed.
