Mediocre Man
5 April 2021 | by view_and_reviewSee all my reviews

This movie would've been bad in the 70's where it belongs. It is exponentially bad for 2007. It was so obviously bad that I just went with it, like clearly this movie is going for ludicrous. The fight choreography was amateurish, the cinematography was high school level, and the plot was paltry.

"Mirageman" is "Kick-Ass" minus the novelty. "Meteor Man" minus the superpowers. "Blankman" minus the laughs. "Batman" minus everything. It was a 70's, low-budget, American-made, kung-fu movie in Spanish.

A masked man named Maco Guttierez (Marko Zaror), who barely speaks the entire movie, decides to fight crime in Chile in a cartoonish fashion. He even runs like a Japanese anime character. He fights crime in a place where people in groups attack him one at a time, and he has a thing for a pretty news reporter named Carol Valdivieso (Maria Elena Swett). If he was younger with a shell he could be a teenage mutant ninja turtle.

Maybe in Chile this movie was a hit, and even still they'd had to have been devoid of U. S. cinematic entertainment for years. This movie was neither creative, entertaining, or good.
