5.0 out of 5 stars Stinging Good Fun April 26 2004
Format:DVD
When looking for a fun action film, a good choice would be a film called Black Scorpion that stars Joan Severance. This movie was followed by a sequel and a television series.
Black Scorpion is the story of a young girl raised by a policeman father whose tactics cause him to ruin his career. Later in life as a cop herself she finds herself in a position where she needs to find justice and the Black Scorpion is born. Using some clothes from an undercover gig as a prostitute, and a few other additions, a costumed vigilante is created. Just as she starts to make her mark a super-villain called The Breathtaker threatens the lives of everyone in the city. It is up to Black Scorpion to save the day.
This movie is a well-balanced mix of action, adventure and humor. The police chief and a con called Argyle (played by Garrett Morris) really help to make this a very enjoyable movie. At the movie's end the viewer is left wanting to see more Black Scorpion adventures. Unfortunately, this is the best that the series gets. This is an R-Rated film for good reason so despite its comic-book feel, this is not one for children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beware this scorpion's sting May 17 2001
Format:DVD
Having never seen the tv-series, this movie makes me wish I could. Cool-looking superheroine who looks like a model for products out of a bondage magazine combined with a clunky-looking, yet high-tech, morphing car makes for fun superheroine adventure. There is some nudity, though from the editing I suspect a double was used for Severance, and even a ...scene perpetrated by the frustrated heroine! (naughty, naughty, Black Scorpion) Don't expect too much in terms of a believable plot, especially the mechanics of her and the car's transformation into a crimefighting duo. Severance's performance and visual appeal in heroine regalia is pleasing enough; but as for her daytime role of a police officer, not only does she come up flat, it's hard to forgive that the 35-ish actress/model is trying to play a character 10 years her junior. Overall, superheroine lovers should still be relatively satisfied. Beware: the DVD claims it includes a feature commentary but I could not find it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Friend of Joan Severance April 14 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Goodday. Black Scorpion has been on Swedish TV for atleast two times. I instructed Joan Severance to make the movie when she still had the manuscript on her desk. Then she lived neighbour to me for five years from 1995-1999. I know she doesn't want to be a p-star but she was dragged to the scene when she was 23 years old in a plastic bag and raped. She started her career as a photographer but was fooled and raped. Please Joan Severance contact me. I don't know if she has been trustee of my fund "Your Contract with Laura Bush" which is a betting fund that always win. I know Joan Severance was no friend of Lady Diana even if Joan Severance was quite pleasant when she and Lady Diana and Prince Charles met at my appartment in 1996 I think it was.
Yours Sincerely
P.S. You are allowed to shorten the resumee down because you may not want to print everything I write.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot better than it has any reason to be. Feb. 2 2001
By KJV
Format:DVD
Remarkably well done as far as recent Roger Corman-produced product goes. Joan Severance goes all-out and gives an excellent performance that puts her co-stars -- Bruce (Re-Animator) Abbott and Rick (Roxanne) Rossovich among them -- to shame. So the movie's a low-budget made-for-cable superhero flick -- that's no excuse to not give it your all.
The DVD looks really good, which is surprising since 50% of the movie is shot in dark L.A. alleys. The full-screen picture is clear and sound is great.
Amazon.com has neglected to include a couple of details about the DVD in it's technical description. The DVD contains a short (10-15 minute) introduction, as well as a feature-length commentary, both by Joan Severance. There's also a few trailers for other Corman movies, including Black Scorpion II.
