Movie Reviews

A lot better than it has any reason to be.
Ned J. McWhirter | Racine, WI United States | 02/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Remarkably well done as far as recent Roger Corman-produced product goes. Joan Severance goes all-out and gives an excellent performance that puts her co-stars -- Bruce (Re-Animator) Abbott and Rick (Roxanne) Rossovich among them -- to shame. So the movie's a low-budget made-for-cable superhero flick -- that's no excuse to not give it your all.The DVD looks really good, which is surprising since 50% of the movie is shot in dark L.A. alleys. The full-screen picture is clear and sound is has neglected to include a couple of details about the DVD in it's technical description. The DVD contains a short (10-15 minute) introduction, as well as a feature-length commentary, both by Joan Severance. There's also a few trailers for other Corman movies, including Black Scorpion II."
Beware this scorpion's sting
toddbj | Winnipeg, Canada | 05/17/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Having never seen the tv-series, this movie makes me wish I could. Cool-looking superheroine who looks like a model for products out of a bondage magazine combined with a clunky-looking, yet high-tech, morphing car makes for fun superheroine adventure. There is some nudity, though from the editing I suspect a double was used for Severance, and even a ...scene perpetrated by the frustrated heroine! (naughty, naughty, Black Scorpion) Don't expect too much in terms of a believable plot, especially the mechanics of her and the car's transformation into a crimefighting duo. Severance's performance and visual appeal in heroine regalia is pleasing enough; but as for her daytime role of a police officer, not only does she come up flat, it's hard to forgive that the 35-ish actress/model is trying to play a character 10 years her junior. Overall, superheroine lovers should still be relatively satisfied. Beware: the DVD claims it includes a feature commentary but I could not find it."
Scorpion Rides the Frog
The Watcher | Connecticut, USA | 02/16/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you have a liking for B genre movies with action, a female heroine, a quasi story-line, and some nudity, then I would recommend this movie to you. The movie starts in the real world then does a rather quick shift to a sci-fi futuristic world. In a scene set in 1975, a cop-father tells his daughter, who later becomes the Scorpion, a story about a scorpion riding on a frog across a stream. Joan Severance's acting is a little weak in the beginning of the movie but improves as she dons a costume and becomes the Black Scorpion. One of the highlights is when a disrobed Joan rides her cop-partner to ecstasy, masked as the Scorpion. Hence the Scorpion takes the frog for a ride."
There are TWO editions of this movie!
David Deakin | Herne Bay, Kent United Kingdom | 02/26/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Please be warned that there are two different editions of this movie on DVD and I've yet to find a retailer who can confirm which they're shipping. The one with "Roger Corman Presents" accros the top of the cover DOES NOT include the interview or commentary."
