Did You Know?


For a while, people confused this character for Iron Man in numerous comparison videos revolving around the evolution of the character. It wasn't until recently (as of May 20, 2018), people have began to realize this isn't Iron Man. See more »


The label on a flashing red warning light inside the exo-helmet is misspelled "MALFUNTION." See more »

I remember this movie!
24 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

I was quite a young child but remember this movie. I recall the handicapped man visiting museums and studying chain mail while designing his special armor. He would climb into a tanning booth-like device that would encase him in the suit. Once in it, he was able to walk and, of course, fight crime. Ah, the 70's! ;)

For years I had assumed it was a short-lived series...I had no idea there was only one movie ever made! Apparently there was a lot of studio wrangling that prevented this pilot concept from taking off. Too bad. It's interesting that this idea has since been used in other film productions.

Search YouTube for "Exoman" and you'll find a five-minute clip. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0KSqelmgN8
