It's 1994! Marvel was still making straight-to-TV and video movies in the mid-90's, DC was pumping out increasingly iffy Batmans, and studio heads were greenlighting the costumed heroes of their youths. In an era before X-Men, Spider-Man and Iron Man reset what we thought of as superhero entertainment, we got some pretty interesting stuff!
Starring Alec Baldwin, Penelope Ann Miller, John Lone, Ian McKellan, Jonathan Winters, Tim Curry, Peter Boyle - and more!
It's a Post-Batman splurge into the pulp world that spawned the very idea of comic book superheroes! Delve into the 1990's grappling with early 20th century takes on Eastern Mysticism! Watch Alec Baldwin try not to be handsome! Behold: Penelope Ann Miller!
I had forgotten Taylor Dayne had a single supporting the film! Here's the video - which contains scenes from the film and Ms. Dayne herself.
