Stan Lee has too much free time
2 September 2007 | by LRPharm54See all my reviews

Lightspeed is about a superhero, not unlike the excellent TV super hero, Flash, but with a lot less "flash". Python, his nemesis has great makeup, terrible lines and not a great super villain, who provides the typical strains of a bad guy gone rampant. Lightspeed is one of the worst movies I have had the displeasure of watching since Alien Apocalypse. Mr. Lee is one person I have the greatest respect for, especially with his Spiderman and Hulk movies showing some excitement, but Lightspeed is a dud at best. I had trouble watching the poor acting, and the actor, Connery, although Sean Connery's son and a good actor, just couldn't make this movie click for me. The plot was typical and droll, and the imagination of the special defects ( I mean effects) are silly and graphically lacking anything close to exciting. I would think Stan Lee could have done more with it and maybe have done a remake of Flash with a bit more flair and improved special effects, a plot, and better acting. All in all, Lightspeed is not worth watching a second time. Stick to Who Wants to be a Superhero, this movie is not even laughable, but leaves one to only groan and remain disappointed.
