Trama e commenti: - «Studente specialista in computer entra in contatto, a distanza galattica, con Mestena, grande mago dagli occhi al laser, che lo costringe a una serie di 7 sfide mortali per liberare una fanciulla prigioniera. Alla povertą dei mezzi corrisponde, purtroppo, l'indigenza dell'ingegno».

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - «...The story, such as it is, involves a computer nerd who has a pair of glasses that can cause traffic lights to change when he gets near them. His girlfriend is jealous of his computer. At night, an evil demon wizard sorcerer demon steals them away, chains the girlfriend up, and instructs the guy to face a bunch of "challenges." The nerd is powerless to refuse, but they stand there amidst some fire and have some really stupid dialogue about it anyway. Then the nerd gets zapped into a series of different worlds. In nearly every one, he wins the "challenge" by shooting lasers out of his wrist computer band thing. Poof, he's in a cave with gooey monsters. Zap, zap, zap. Poof, challenge over. Poof, he's in a glacier with frozen gooey monsters. Zap, zap, zap. Poof, challenge over. Poof, he's in a rock concert. Zap, zap, zap at the band members. Poof, challenge over. The scary part is that each of these challenges was filmed by a different director -- I have no clue how seven directors were grouped together without any one of them having any talent. You'd think someone with a brain would have made the list by accident if nothing else. At the end of all this, the guy finally issues the demon wizard sorcerer demon a challenge of his own that essentially boils down to, "C'mon, fight me without your powers, what are you scared, c'mon!" Then they have a three second fist fight, and the demon wizard dies. Movie over...».
