Trying to ascertain the plot of this movie is like driving behind a camper, uphill, with no opportunity to pass. For six hundred miles.

Mighty Jack, more like Mighty Crap. Mighty Crappy film if I do say so myself! Where was the plot? Hot Ice? Big Deal, what's the big deal? All I could really get out of this film was Mr. F's legs WOOOW lol, all the bank turns in tha movie, and slow,slow,slooow the plot down! Oh course there was no plot sooo...yeesh!

So, I have a question. Did anyone who watched this episode on its initial airing actually think there was something happening to the SOL in the opening segment?

I love the Oceans 11 reference before the George Clooney remake.

Seriously, this movie makes Fugitive Alien look like a masterpiece.

I love this episode, but the four minutes of them making sounds like he's trying to hold pot smoke in really gets annoying after about fifteen seconds.

1:23:25 He fired like five shots before they ducked. Is it the Sandy Frank editing that screws everything up like that or is it the original Japanese editors?

36:00 "Hey, give me a turn at that. Wooo, it's fun." Best bit of the episode.

I wish they hadn't had so many riffs during the opening scene that explains the plot. I at least gathered that Mighty Jack is a team put together to combat an organization called Q, but they spoke over all the other details.

I love how most of these riffs are based on old references. I just wonder how the under 30 crowd get some of them? I hope they do!

The weed smoking scene had me rolling on the floor with laughter! Best riffs in the episode by far!

I love how the Japanese-German guy has an accent, but it's neither German nor Japanese. Though that is, by far, the least troubling thing about this film.

I think the opening host segment is a graphic representation of the damage inflicted upon watching this "movie." I mean, Crow says it best. "What the heck was that thing? I'm blind! I'M BLIND!"

Okay, so I'm trying to piece together the plot from this one.

There's two rival organizations, Q, and Mighty Jack (should have done some work on the name for that second one). And there's something about a scientist developing some technology that makes ice...hot...or something. The words "molecular manipulation" were in there somewhere. And there was an evil plot to use this technology to melt some island somewhere. And that one guy's son turned out to be a villain, and then he died, and there was a lot of weird submarine stuff. That's all I got out of this. I could watch it again to try and figure it out, but it's pretty painfully plotted.

The best part of Mighty Jack: (paraphrased) "the island is made out of ice, yet it's submerged in warmer waters. That defies all the laws of physics!"
The laws of physics determine the melting point of water? Astonishing! Fascinating! Why does it get dark when I close my eyes? Because of the laws of physics! How do plants grow? Photosyn--I mean, the laws of physics commands them to grow!

I just noticed in one of the host segments Joel mentions speilberg is doing old cartoons into movies like the flintstones crow goes, yeah right what next Casper. It would have been 3 years before they made Casper so I am wondering if they knew it or another example of them predicting things

Thanks Michael Bridgman- this is the first episode of MST3K I ever saw- a tape in 1993 while paying the board game Risk.

I just watched Hellcats, and then this (both for the first time). I've got to go see something, anything, with a semi-cohesive story, before I suffer any more brain damage.

I'm always impressed when they avoid the easy, obvious jokes: You've got a character named "Atari" here...This episode COULD have been wall to wall video game jokes, but they limited themselves to one or two quips about Pong. A lesser show would have grabbed for the low hanging fruit, so to speak.

They are killing each other over ice that doesn't melt. Seriously? Aside from whiskey sours, the value would be... what? Do the Japanese sprain their ankles THAT often?

I don't understand why all the japanese movies they rip on don't get as many views. They're the funniest by far.

Do you think it was this incomprehensible in the original japanese? Or was it the dubbing that made it so confusing? We may never know or care.

Seriously, Elel. So true. I just gave up trying to follow the plot after a while and focused only on the guys.

WHA?? I think I've suffered permanent cognitive damage from trying to decipher a plot here-- but the guys made sure the deaths of those synapses were not in vain.
