If you have a liking for B genre movies with action, a female heroine, a quasi story-line, and some nudity, then I would recommend this movie to you. The movie starts in the real world then does a rather quick shift to a sci-fi futuristic world. In a scene set in 1975, a cop-father tells his daughter, who later becomes the Scorpion, a story about a scorpion riding on a frog across a stream. Joan Severance's acting is a little weak in the beginning of the movie but improves as she dons a costume and becomes the Black Scorpion. One of the highlights is when a disrobed Joan rides her cop-partner to ecstasy, masked as the Scorpion. Hence the Scorpion takes the frog for a ride.

Please be warned that there are two different editions of this movie on DVD and I've yet to find a retailer who can confirm which they're shipping. The one with "Roger Corman Presents" accros the top of the cover DOES NOT include the interview or commentary.

Having never seen the tv-series, this movie makes me wish I could. Cool-looking superheroine who looks like a model for products out of a bondage magazine combined with a clunky-looking, yet high-tech, morphing car makes for fun superheroine adventure. There is some nudity, though from the editing I suspect a double was used for Severance, and even a ...scene perpetrated by the frustrated heroine! (naughty, naughty, Black Scorpion) Don't expect too much in terms of a believable plot, especially the mechanics of her and the car's transformation into a crimefighting duo. Severance's performance and visual appeal in heroine regalia is pleasing enough; but as for her daytime role of a police officer, not only does she come up flat, it's hard to forgive that the 35-ish actress/model is trying to play a character 10 years her junior. Overall, superheroine lovers should still be relatively satisfied. Beware: the DVD claims it includes a feature commentary but I could not find it.

Sexy Joan Severance puts on black hooker clothes to battle crime as the super-heroine Black Scorpion complete with her own super-powered car. This is great stuff if you love comics and B movies.

If you love B-movies, comic books, or women dressed in bondage gear who fight crime this is your lucky day!You'll love this one! This is the perfect flick when you're looking for escapist fun as super heroine Black Scorpion battles the evil Breathtaker and his army of asthmatics the wheezing warriors! It's a blast! Joan Severance is fantastic, seductive and beautiful and her commentary and interview segment on this DVD are a delight. She is so cute and seems like she really had a blast making this movie. If you enjoy this one check out the sequel and the tv show. This is fun stuff!

When looking for a fun action film, a good choice would be a film called Black Scorpion that stars Joan Severance. This movie was followed by a sequel and a television series.
Black Scorpion is the story of a young girl raised by a policeman father whose tactics cause him to ruin his career. Later in life as a cop herself she finds herself in a position where she needs to find justice and the Black Scorpion is born. Using some clothes from an undercover gig as a prostitute, and a few other additions, a costumed vigilante is created. Just as she starts to make her mark a super-villain called The Breathtaker threatens the lives of everyone in the city. It is up to Black Scorpion to save the day.
This movie is a well-balanced mix of action, adventure and humor. The police chief and a con called Argyle (played by Garrett Morris) really help to make this a very enjoyable movie. At the movie's end the viewer is left wanting to see more Black Scorpion adventures. Unfortunately, this is the best that the series gets. This is an R-Rated film for good reason so despite its comic-book feel, this is not one for children.

I tell ya, I'm a sucker for a descent superhero movie. (I'm not counting super bug budget, no storyline Batman's either)
A couple of my favorites are The Phantom and a budget movie called The Demolitionist. The Black Scorpion can be added to that collection.
If you've seen the Demolitionist then get this movie. It's basically a copy of that heroine. (It even stars the same guy in both movies)
If you haven't, then let me explain...a cop's father is murdered and she seeks vengence. She laces up the black outfit (a sexy catwomanish, skimpy outfit that looks absolutely great on Joan Severance) and goes out to kick some booty.
It's a fun, action packed movie, mind you, you may not wish the kids to see it...without screening it first to see if you approve of the pretty graphice sex scene Severance has in it. Which in my opinion, was a bonus (alright, give it an extra star <grin>)

Black Scorpion always makes me smile. It's a fun movie with a great leading lady and a good sense of fun. I've watched this on more than one rainy Sunday afternoon. A black leather clad superheroine battles the Darth Vader like Breathetaker who wants to make the entire city asthmatic. Silly and sexy cult entertainment.
