0903: The Pumaman

MST3k, Experiment #0903

The Pumaman.

Low-budget superhero flick about a young man given a mystical medallion by a South American shaman, in order to become a puma- empowered champion like his father before him. In trying to locate the young man initially, the shaman has the nasty habit of pushing candidates out windows to test them.

This is an awesome epsiode! The host segments aren't the greatest, but they are very good... which is always a plus. The riffing is fantastic. The movie, however, is a piece of work. I don't know why the makers of this movie even felt it was watchable. The characters' personalities aren't even remotely consistent. The lead guy is all "suave" one moment, and then after he puts on the belt, he's suddenly a whiny little idiot. Well, to be fair, he was an idiot before... but he wasn't whining all the time.

Anyways, the "special effects" are a travesty of mankind... Let's just say this movie is dreadful.

I do like Mary Jo, errrr... as Shelli the nanite hairdresser, errrrrr......

Favourite line: "Oh who am I kidding? I can't build a cat."

  1. I dig his powerful hands, but is heart is evil. When he didn't get the answer from the bad guy he just let him go to fall to his doom.
    The music score is too upbeat for the intense drama unfolding.
