Flying Low and High
7 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is my favorite episode of MST, there is just not one dull moment. Basically the film is a "Superman" rip off and oh boy what a rip it truly is.

One thing that surprised me is the fact that Donald Plesence is in this film, seeing him made me think what the hell is he doing in this piece of .... But that's a common thing in the mile long records of most actors and actresses, it's their job what are you going to do. But seeing him in this lame superhero film I can't help but think how cool it would of been if Donald was cast to play the super villain Brainiac if they ever made another good Superman movie sequel, what a shame.

But anyway there are a lot of hilarious moments, from seeing the mentor pin Puma Man down and the MST crew react thinking this is some sort of well you know moment. Seeing the flying sequence and Crow singing my favorite quote, yeah Crow I agree he flies like a moron; the flying sequence is just terrible as you can tell it's the background moving and he's on strings which are clearly imbalanced. But my favorite moment in that elevator lift and one of the character make a noise which reflect how unthrilling a ride up top it is, honestly the guy couldn't just construct stairs is it really that far up.

This episode flies high.
