Further evidence, if any more were needed after Space Jam, that basketball players should leave the acting to the professionals. Shaquille O'Neal would have done well to heed that advice before wandering into this comic-book travesty.
Shaq plays John Henry Irons, a military weapons designer whose gadgets fall into the wrong hands (those of dastardly villain, and former Breakfast Club-er, Judd Nelson). Irons' only real option is to turn to Uncle Joe (Richard Roundtree) for help forging a super-suit.
Pathetic effects, woeful miscasting, and ill-considered political messages leave this feeling more like a spoof than a serious attempt at a superhero movie.
