Storyline

In the quiet city of Sugar Land, one man fights to keep his city safe. Unfortunately, he's the one causing half the crimes, and Action Man is warned that if he steps out of line one more time he'll be put under house arrest. In comes Mark, a news intern looking for a story to get his work on the News, and Action Man seems like an interesting case. That is, until a murder is reported and the new duo suspects Jonathan Magnum, a suspicious millionaire who just moved in down the block. Can Action Man stop his first real villain, or is he in over his head? Written by Anonymous

Legend of Action Man - very creative
2 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I couldn't disagree more with the first 2 reviews. I was at the screening in Houston with 2 of my friends. We all thought it was really funny. It obviously wasn't aimed at the demographic of a stodgy old reviewer. It was a great parody. I can see how they would have missed a lot of the contemporary references, but they must have been the only ones in the audience that weren't laughing almost constantly. I can agree with some of the technical issues such as sound at times. I attributed that to the very low budget they were working with. I hope they are working on something else. We would love to see it!! Action Man 2?
