||A ragtag group of characters with special powers accidentally acquire an orb which is capable of destroying the universe, and in turn it is stolen by an evil entity who intends to use it for that purpose. They therefore have to risk all to get it back and save the galaxy.
||The guys move from one elaborate set piece to another chasing the orb, they are in space craft, prison, the lair of a mad collector and elsewhere. Fortunately even though the girls are either red or green they appear to be physically the same as Earth girls, so there is a bit of smooching, but nothing to offend. Many explosions and much gunfire with space weapons.
||Seeing bits of the trailer I could not see how such a collections of characters could be coherently presented, but they were and they were fun, even though I had a job to follow exactly what was going on. Liked a lot by critics and the general public but really only worth viewing if you are a Marvel Comics or an SF fan.
