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.
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.
