Surge Of Power - Revenge Of The Sequel
Released in 2017, Surge, cinema's first out gay superhero, is back with more adventure and more celebrity guests than ever before.
His nemesis, the Metal Master, is out of jail again in Big City and is willing to play it straight - well, you know what I mean, but is tempted to go back to crime by Augur, the enigmatic arch enemy of Omen, the sage and fabled superhero of bygone days. Augur gives Metal Master a special mission that includes the mysterious crystal, Celinedionium.
Will Surge be strong enough in this epic battle of good, versus evil?
Surge of Power - The Revenge of the Sequel, truly a superhero and a sequel like no other! Epic battle? Really? Anyone expecting an X-Men or Avengers Assemble walk away now!
What Vincent J Roth and Antonio Lexerot have exposed us to is a good old fashioned bit of fun. Not ground breaking, no stunning effects, no controversy, just a bit of fun with little dose of campiness finished with whipped cream and a cherry on the top for good measure.
Although funny, at points the movie slows down too much with unnecessary and over extended scenes, making it almost a background viewing only rating, almost.
That said, you can't help but been drawn in by Surges power of likeability (credit to Roth) and enjoy the ride with him. And then there are the countless, yes countless of celebrities putting their name to this project, this really is an incredible feat, only comparable with the Sharknado series, but Surge wins this "epic battle" of the celebritometer hands down.
Surge of Power - Revenge of the Sequel, a nice film and a nice way to spend 1.1/2 hours, maybe it should have been 1 hour?
