Just because he cares for his limping girlfriend Narda (Vilma Santos),
Ramon (Zandro Zamora) gets into fight after fight with the local ruffians.
Then though he gets paralyzed by a survey ray from a UFO and
questionedabout the identity of several key humans, an atomic scientist, a
metal specialist and two philosophers ... now it's not as if Ramon would
have any special knowledge, but he knows the names from a magazine he has
read at Narda's the other day. Narda, seeing him caught in the ray, turns
into scantily clad superheroine Darna (she can do that), frees Ramon and
chases the UFO away.
Narda does her best to get Ramon to tell her what
he has told the aliens without him finding out she is actually a
superheroine, then visits the people Ramon has mentioned one by one, and
wouldn't you know it, she saves them all from being kidnapped by sexy
female aliens in eccentric skin colours.
The alien girls are
commandeered by Elektra (Rosanna Ortiz) and are from planet Arko Eris, a
planet where a immortality formula was found and now the planet is grossly
overpopulated. Thus earth has to be dragged into Arko Eris' galaxy to
house a bunch of immortal aliens, and thus the alien girls need the
scientists, the philosphers mainly for propaganda purposes - after all we
earthlings have to be explained why it's good for us to be dragged to
another galaxy, right?
Of course, Darna stands in the way of Elektra's
plans, so she (who other than Ramon knows that Narda and Darna are one and
the same very well) kidnaps Ramon and puts him into a trance to lure her
to her lair. Once there, Darna is chained up so she can't interfere
anymore - but Darna offers the aliens her help - should Elektra be able to
beat her fair and square in a one-on-one fight. Elektra accepts and ...
well, it all ends happy for us earthlings.
Low budget superhero
flick that certainly has its moments and is kept alive by a slightly
ironic performance by Vilma Santos ... but somehow it just could have been
better. Basically, the film suffers from a weak directorial effort that
never tries to hide its budgetary shortcomings, or to milk the films many
campy elements to their full effect. What remains is still a fun film for
trash movie afficionados, but also one that falls short of its many
