Movie Reviews

Not for children! Terrible movie! Flash knock-off sucks!
U2 Fan | Charlotte, NC United States | 01/17/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This was an absolutley awful knockoff of The Flash from DC Comics.

Stan Lee should be ashamed that his name is plastered across the DVD box cover.

The acting is poor, the villain is just annoying (not scary).

This is a very bloody and brutal movie that should NOT be shown to children.

How on earth could they have gotten it so wrong? Well they did.

The costume even sucked. I could have found a better costume on eBay!
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! Buy The Flash TV series instead!"

"Stan Lee fans will definitely come away with mixed feelings from this 2006 extremely low budget Superhero B-movie. Believe it or not this is not the worst B-movie I've ever seen, that honor still goes to "The Warrior of the Lost World" with Robert Ginty. Make no mistake, this is a low budget made for Television production that suffers from very poor acting by Jason Connery and most of the cast. Jason Connery may share the same last name as his famous father, but great acting ability isn't in his DNA.

Jason Connery stars as Daniel Leight, a government agent and member of the elite ghost squad trying to capture the Python. During a covert mission Daniel is confronted by Python and is almost killed in an explosion. Daniel undergoes experimental treatment and after a radiation overload he discovers he has the ability to move extremely fast and after buying a wind suit from the local sports store he becomes the Superhero Lightspeed.

I think this movie could have worked if someone other than Jason Connery had played Lightspeed and it had more of a story ,better special effects and Superhero costume . Jason Connery appears as if he's not very athletic and given the amount of hair loss he just doesn't seem to fit the role at all. The one bright spot and only thing saving this movie from complete disaster is the role of the villain played by Daniel Goddard. In my opinion his acting is really good and he plays the part of the cold brutal killer out for revenge perfectly. The costume and make-up for the Python is really well done, it's too bad the costume for lightspeed didn't receive the same deluxe treatment.

This is the only Movie that I've seen the hero buy his Superhero costume right off the rack. The acting from Lee Majors is nothing special and he comes off as very stiff and stale in his role as Tanner and he probably did it for a pay cheque. The part of Beth played by Nicole Eggert only confirms she definitely can't act and her role on Baywatch is about as good as she gets.

For a made for Television movie the picture and sound quality are really good and everything else about this movie is average at best. In my opinion this movie is not suitable for young children due to the amount of senseless graphic violence. I would compare this film with "The Phantom" with Billy Zane and "The Shadow" with Alec Baldwin, just not as good as them.I just picked this up at the Walmart boxing day sale, so fortunately I didn't pay very much for the movie."
Poor Stan Lee

"Poor Stan Lee. His name is attached to another Sci-Fi stinker. The Sci-fi Channel is making itself infamous by producing the worst films in the history of the industry, and Lightspeed is right up there.

Do not see this film. It is horrendous in every way.

It opens with 15 minutes of mindless and pointless gunfire, and then the "story" kicks in."
