Derivitave junk
28 July 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is The Great Stan Lee we're talking about so I hesitate to say anything bad. Nonetheless Mr. Lee has decided to do trash for cash. First of all the music throughout the whole film is low grade 80's movie synthesizer. This music is so bad and so distracting it makes your eyes roll. It also sets a tone of b-movie cheapness. Honestly I do love cheapo b-films but you have to be able to laugh at it. Lightspeed tries so hard to take itself seriously but has nothing good or fun to offer. The script is horrible, the acting is a joke and the characters are preposterous. Worst of all, ALL the superhero elements are derived from other comic book characters to create an uninteresting amalgam with no unique abilities. Again, I love Stan Lee and comics and b- movies, but this is one to avoid.
