Storyline

The discovery of a miraculous serum capable of giving youth, health and superhuman powers arouses the interest of Marcus, a megalomaniac billionaire bound to a wheelchair. He sends his assassins to seize it. But the discovery is no longer in the laboratories. While the young man tries to escape with his girlfriend, the beautiful and mysterious Electra comes forward, determined in her turn to get the serum. And the fact that the beneficial effects are now transmissible only through sexual intercourse does not worry her.

So where's Dyna-girl?
9 July 2004 | by JonDubya2004See all my reviews

Shannon Tweed should really stick to soft-core erotica, because this "superpowered" film isn't that good. The premise alone is icky: Shannon plays Electra, woman trying to seduce her own stepson so she can get her incestuous hands on some type of super-hero formula that was injected into him. Ew! Meanwhile some paraplegic businessman named Mr. Roach (the lamest villain EVER!) wants the formula too. So eventually Roach becomes taken with Electra and HER magical abilities (the superhuman ability of being a slut) and teams up to take down Joe, the stepson and his cute but sensible girlfriend. The sad part is that despite lamely choreographed fights straight out of "The Six Million Dollar Man", obvious special effects, and a tacky subject matter, it's STILL a better film then Superman 4 or Batman & Robin. Barely. So fans of both DTV action films and fans of Shannon Tweed's rack will get some guilty thrills out of this poorly done, yet entertaining fare.
