An excellent pilot show for its time. ;)
7 April 2004 | by bluesnaggletooth316See all my reviews

I remember this movie quite well, as it was shown in the "The Flash"'s timeslot on CBS's Thurday night lineup. I like the story's concept similarity to Sam Raimi's "DarkMan", which was really fresh at the time, and the style worked very well in the early 90's, the dark "Anti-hero". It would've been great to have Raimi helm this as a series, or even the team that brought us the "Flash"'s series, too.

I really liked the show's return to the hat and trenchcoat look for a 90's hero (what I'd call "neo-pulp") and would've liked to at least seen a 13 episode run of this show, if not just for Judge Cain's costume and the beautiful Maggie Han! :)
