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.

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.

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.

If you love B-movies, comic books, or women dressed in bondage gear who fight crime this is your lucky day!You'll love this one! This is the perfect flick when you're looking for escapist fun as super heroine Black Scorpion battles the evil Breathtaker and his army of asthmatics the wheezing warriors! It's a blast! Joan Severance is fantastic, seductive and beautiful and her commentary and interview segment on this DVD are a delight. She is so cute and seems like she really had a blast making this movie. If you enjoy this one check out the sequel and the tv show. This is fun stuff!
