Movie review: Lightspeed

When his funding is cut-off Edward experiments on himself and becomes Python, a snake-man who blames his problems on Daniel. When an accident gives Daniel super-speed powers and turns him into Lightspeed, he goes after Python.

Jason Connery (Daniel Leight/Lightspeed), Nicole Eggert (Beth), Daniel Goddard (Python/Edward), Lee Majors (Tanner), Michael Flynn (Dr. Findlay).

This is a Stan Lee comic book theme made into a movie and although it is called Lightspeed, this movie never moves beyond a crawl. Beyond the meeting of two superhero’s, the plot in this one just never really develops.

Action is dull and flat, as is acting. Special effects are unimpressive to say the least. There is no chemistry between the actors and although I can see potential for Connery as an actor he was absolutely the wrong person for the role of Lightspeed. Even more experienced actors, Eggert and Lee, were flat, dull and lifeless in this film. Add to that the problem of Python being very difficult to understand this one wasn’t just boring, it was frustrating.

The movie was so uninteresting it took me 3 days to finish it because I kept falling asleep.

I am not sure what this is rated but I don’t recall any nudity or serious foul language so preens and above should be find watching this one and the younger kids may be the only ones to even enjoy it.
