Surreal, silly and charming
24 June 2019 | by chazzarbSee all my reviews

Of all the bad old superhero films, the Starman series are probably my favourite. Not a good film in the traditional sense, but highly amusing if you like bad films. Lots of ridiculous costumes, poorly dubbed dialogue and absurd plot combine to make a highly amusing bad film that is great to watch with friends. There is something charming about a lycra clad superhero flying after alien Salamander-men in their flying-saucer and foiling their absurd plans to destroy the world. Perhaps the best part of this film are the fight scenes which are the most ridiculous and absurd I have seen since watching Turkish Starwars. There is clearly little-to-no fighting choreography, so it is just a horde of Salamander-men literally dancing around Starman before he Karate chops them into the next dimension. Starman is so untouchable and overpowered it is a wonder the Salamander-men even bothered to try and fight him - and the best part ... the Salamander-men explode after being chucked into water (for some reason)! These films are a great source of unintentional absurdist humour. If you enjoyed this be sure to watch the other Starman films, they are all great and are available for free on youtube.
