Return of Captain Invincible ★★½ Legend in Leotards1983 (PG)

Arkin is a derelict superhero persuaded to fight crime again in this unique spoof. One liners fly faster than a speeding bullet. Lee gives one of his best performances as the mad scientist. Musical numbers by Rocky Horror's O'Brien and Hartley sporadically interrupt. Made on a shoe-string budget, offbeat film is entertaining but uneven. 102m/C VHS, DVD . AU Alan Arkin, Christopher Lee, Kate Fitzpatrick, Bill Hunter, Graham Kennedy, Michael Pate, Hayes Gordon, Max Phipps, Noel Ferrier; D: Philippe Mora; W: Steven E. de Souza, Andrew Gaty; C: Louis Irving, Mike Molloy; M: William Motzing, Richard O'Brien.
