In a ruined future Los Angeles, a wheel-chair bound man is swept up into a shelved government military/science project.

An awkward movie that's a little too bad to be campy. I'll keep it around, but only because it's almost collectable. Not exactly awful, but not recommended.

The moon mysteriously de-orbits, but a plucky team works to correct it. Special thanks to the communist Chinese for being awesome somehow. Possibly because the communist Chinese had their fingers in this movie.

Pretty rushed and bland. It has characters we don't care enough about, and there are random Chinese for some reason. Overall not horrible but not recommended.

A renown robber is caught, but actually getting him to the law is complicated and dangerous.

A good tone, and I think I would recommend this to fans of westerns, but I'm not one of them.

A weak man's family gets killed but a strong man seeks revenge.

It makes zero sense so many times throughout the movie. It's also not proper within any of the universes of the previous movies. If you do or if you don't like the previous movies in this series, pass on this.

When super-soldier technology is discovered in the hands of terrorists, a former super-solder is brought back into service.

Decent!

An optics specialist is sent to investigate the unusual readings the military is getting from his equipment.

A solid movie all around. Great action and a good world, but with enough fuzzy science and The A-Team-style jury-rigging to rivet it solidly to TV-movie quality.

Supergirl supers superly.

Oh my god this is trash from every angle. Bad writing, bad acting, bad .. just bad everything everywhere always. It has no high points. Disney can suck a dick.

A crazy old man appears in a war-torn city to correct the misconceptions of the retelling of his adventures.

It's a great fluff fantasy movie. I didn't see it back in the day, so it has no nostalgia for me. Left with what it is at face value, I can't recommend it except for people who like the old 80s style of kids' practical effects fantasy movies. Think The Dark Crystal - (1982 movie) or The Neverending Story - (1984 movie).

A boy is abused, gets hit on the head, is institutionalized and has a daydream.

Raises the bar for acting with this character. A good movie, but definitely not traditional. Riveting without a particularly obvious thread. It could have been a whole lot better, but it would have needed to delve into the true and far darker roots of the main character; his mother, and you can't do that because she's a woman.

After watching this movie I just realized I didn't see the earlier one. Whoops.
