The City of Angels is falling apart, and crime pervades the city to the core. The mayor is corrupt, the police are inept, the city needs a figure to take control of the situation. Then in the light of day Darcy Walker is a cop, but in the dark of night she becomes the Black Scorpion. She does with a mask what she can’t do with a badge. This is vigilante justice, old school style.
The Black Scorpion tv series is great! It is cheesy as hell…BUT it has Black Scorpion!
Michelle Lintel in THAT costume is a real stunner if you love masked heroines! And the show offers nearly everything: Attempted unmaskings, self unmasking, unmaskings…..
(attempted unmasking, self unmasking, unmasking, secret identity discovered)
It has (nearly) everything! Great scenes! Even it would be great if more villains would care who she is behind the mask. Only Flashpoint and the Gangster Pranker wanna find out.
And Steve actually never tries to unmask Black Scorpion, even as he is “invited” by her.
But that is complaining on a high level 😉
Cheesy as hell. Action is ok. But it has a lot of female villains and sexy fights!
Looks goods, covers enough of her face, secured with a wig. All in all a pretty good disguise!
Rest of the costume
Great suit, nice cleavage, sexy pantyhose. Only the boots could be more….elegant. Perhaps some black leather boots with wedge heels?
Michelle Lintel (Black Scorpion / Darcy Walker): Acting is solid, looks really cute/sexy in both identities.
Easily the best dressed female detective in the movie history 🙂
A reboot of that series with better stories and action scenes…oh man!! That would be the holy grail for me!
