It is about this cop who is in the Florida Everglades going to deliver a parking ticket. He gets caught in some radiation test that NASA is performing and develops super powers. The big catch about his powers are they disappear when he sees the color red;it is the color the sky turned during the radiation test. If you are a fan of the Greatest American hero television show this is a great movie for you. It is very cheesy but entertaining. One of the best scenes is the super-cop catching his partner and the fall being so great they go deep into the ground and end up in China!
It stars Terence Hill (know for some 80s westerns, not the TV show), Joanne Dru, Ernest Borgnine, and Marc Lawrence. If you have an afternoon to go to a video store and yes I said video store(this one is not on DVD yet) rent it!
This movie is screaming for an Owen Wilson remake, he could be great in this one!

I actually remember watching this movie at a New Year's party when I was a kid. It and some dumb horror movie. Basically, our parents put on the tape so we kids would stay busy while our parents played poker and got drunk. I have to say, even as a kid, that movie was pretty damn bad. If you want a cheesy old superhero movie, I'd go with Swamp Thing or, hell, even the TV movie of Dr. Strange.
