    Synopsis


    The Meteor Man
    Robert Townsend's superhero action comedy underwent much tinkering during post-production, employing four editors to whip the film into shape. Townsend wrote, directed, and produced this urban fable and also stars as Jefferson Reed, a meek substitute teacher in an inner-city neighborhood dominated by a gang of leather-jacketed, peroxided blonde goons who call themselves the Golden Lords. The residents of the neighborhood feel they can do nothing about the gang. But then a meteor hits Jefferson, who finds that he can fly, has super-strength, and can retain all the information in a book in thirty seconds. As a result, Jefferson, who normally is afraid of heights and runs from danger, becomes a reluctant superhero. The word about the "Meteor Man" gets back to the Golden Lords, who intend to rid the neighborhood of this milquetoast crime-fighter. The Meteor Man contains a cornucopia of cameos appearances, including Bill Cosby, Luther Vandross, Sinbad, Big Daddy Kane and Nancy Wilson. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

      It's A Bird, It's A Plane, It's A Really Bad Movie

      I think Saturday Night Live comic David Spade best summed up this film on his 'Hollywood Minute' skit by saying something along the lines of "Look, it's a bird, it's a plane...no, it's 'Meteor Man,' and he has incredible superpowers, one of which is the ability to disappear completely from the box-office in just over a weekend". Widescreen and full-screen with no bonus features. Skip it.

      Always loved Meteor Man. Nice movie for younger generation, but I'm young at heart. Robert Townsend did a good job with Meteor Man.
