Three TV episodes edited into a movie
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Three episodes of the show were edited together to make this movie for folks like me. I enjoyed Black Scorpion 1 and 2, but I hadn't seen the show. Sting gave me a chance to see what I'd missed. I watched and ended up enjoying it. Michelle Lintel is a doll. Scott Valentine is well cast. Frank Gorshin is superb. Sting really grew on me. I ultimately bought the complete TV show, but it made Sting obsolete. The same three episodes are included in that set too. I think the complete series is a great buy. You might want to get that instead of Sting. It's more expensive, but a great collection for Scorpion fans."
The TV show, Inspired by Movies, Becomes a Movie

"Michelle Lintel revisits her television role as the crime fighter Black Scorpion. While this is a movie, it plays like three television episodes placed end to end. The film opens with her undercover and running into another undercover cop. The other cop becomes her new partner. He transferred in specifically so he could catch Black Scorpion.Black scorpion must first go up against Firearm, a villain with a gun for an arm. He is after the mayor because of a gun bill that was passed.Next Black Scorpion blinds a photographer who becomes Flashpoint, a villain bent on exposing Black Scorpions identity.Finally she must go against Clockwise, a villain improperly jailed for twenty-five years. Now that he is out he wants vengeance on all those who did him wrong (Frank Gorshin does an excellent job as this villain).At the film's end, you do not feel like you have watched a movie, but a television show. Nowhere near as good as the original film. The fighting is more professional wrestling than martial arts and the banter, especially in the Firearm battles, is so bad you have to hear it. Still, it is some reasonably good and fun crime fighting."
