Storyline

The Power's kids have been given superhuman abilities, but that doesn't necessarily mean that adjusting to a new home will be any easier. Alex still needs to find his science book for class, Jack loses his retainer down the drain, Julie's room is a mess, and the youngest Katie just wants to be invited to play with the neighborhood kids. They each subtly use their powers to get by, but not with the approval of their parents who wish for the children to act normal enough so as to not attract undue attention. A typical day at school soon finds Jack accepting a challenge; to go into the abandoned spooky mansion of former circus owner Dr. Mobius. There Jack and his friends are soon startled and leave, but not before Jack picks up a medallion lying on the floor. Soon the object begins taking its toll on the Power's kids with an ominous storm overhead, and the phantom of Dr. Mobius beaconing for its return. Now Alex, Jack and little sis Katie have to enter the creepy mansion of Dr. Mobius if... Written by -Written by Nolan Hubbard<nohvarrmarvel1@gmail.com>

Probably a good thing it never became a full series
18 April 2016 | by peefynSee all my reviews

The "Power pack" pilot, considered a movie by IMDb, is not very fun or entertaining. Maybe it's unfair to judge a show made for kids in 1991, but other shows from that time (and before it) still holds water, to some extent. This one does not.

Instead of an origin story, you find the family (where all four kids have superpowers) moving into a new area. But other than the youngest kid staring out of a window a bit, this does not really affect the rest of the plot. The plot of the episode is that one of the kids (secretly) uses his power to get himself and some kids he has just met into an abandoned house. In there they find lots of spooky stuff, and the kid steals an amulet. When he comes home, the amulet starts calling out to him, and together with two of his siblings, he goes back to return it to the house. The last sibling (who has super speed) only uses her power to do chores.

The only highlights in this that I can think of, are the special effects used on the shrinking power, and the super speed power. Both look quite neat, compared to the rest of the relatively cheap production.
