M.A.N.T.I.S.: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

M.A.N.T.I.S.: Season 1 (1994)



Critic Consensus: Carl Lumbly is a welcome superhero and M.A.N.T.I.S. boasts some genuinely imaginative flourishes, but chintzy production design and hokey storytelling derail the sci-fi serial.

Critic Reviews for M.A.N.T.I.S.: Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

Every season needs a controversy -- in this case, however, the controversy is more interesting than the show, and is likely to last longer.

Strictly for kids, or those guys who don't get out much on Friday night.

It serves as one of the most WTF relics of superhero television, but it never failed to be entertaining in its weirdness.

It's worth watching on its own merits.

There is virtually nothing here that hasn't been seen before, and presented with more flair. You've seen worse, but seldom anything more pointless.

Entertaining, but lacks strong enough storylines to make it really gripping.
