Steel (1997)

This a Covid-19 2021 minireview!

“Well, I’ll be dipped in sh*t and rolled in breadcrumbs! ” – Uncle Joe

Number of Times Seen – 1 (19 Aug 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A military scientist becomes a superhero in order to stop someone who stole his latest invention.

Bottom Line – terrible superhero movie that doesn’t work on any level. Shaquille O’Neal is horrendously hilarious as the main character and everything he says or does doesn’t feel realistic or plausible at all. The special effects are terrible and that also takes so much away from how the story plays out.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In the comic book, Steel was directly inspired by Superman when the Man of Steel saved his life (both literal and metaphorically). After Superman’s death at the hands of Doomsday, Irons built a powered suit of armor. Sporting Superman’s shield as an homage to Kal-El, he began fighting crime in the slums of Metropolis. The movie doesn’t mention Superman, but John’s tattoo references the last son of Krypton. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
