Impressively worthy dialogue
23 February 2013 | by scorpivsSee all my reviews

When I can't decide whether something is cliché, or if it's classic, I term it 'clichassic.' That much having been said, I found the dialogue of "Lightning Strikes" to be refreshingly unoffensive yet current, conscious and stirring, and the furthest thing from 'canned.' This is particularly important in an industry plagued with nonsensical artifices such as 128 mph kicks to the face at approximately .03 cm per second enhanced or replaced by an over-priced piece of software and a cameraman who can't hold still. For that matter, anyone who enjoys B-movies on the face value of laughing at B-movies would understand what I mean when I say this feature did not have me laughing. On the remote chance it is but a string of over-spun network-surplused-chatter -- which I am not suggesting nor do I have any reason to believe, it certainly is worth watching ... and at worst, well-conceived. A good 'listen.' That it has Kevin Sorbo in a serious part is simply a good sign and a healthy indicator of the state of the 'entertainment' industry. I fully intend to not only add "Lightning Strikes" to my personal collection, but to watch it again. Enjoy!
