User Ratings: 1,365
Rating: 5/10 -- As such, it is a movie that takes a little too long to get going, before the real nitty-gritty of the action arrives in an admittedly pacey climax. Full Review

...The film has a blithe, tongue-in-cheek spirit....Karen Kopins radiates wit and elegance...

Rating: 4/5 -- There's something magical going on in Jake Speed, something that transcends the B-movie action and the occasionally clumsy moments. Full Review

...JAKE SPEED, A cross between ROMANCING THE STONE and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK and a whole lot more that vein, is fun...

Product Description:

Jake Speed, defender of justice, is on a new mission. He must save a kidnapped girl from the clutches of a greedy "white slaver." The funny thing is, as far as anybody knows, Jake Speed is purely a fictional character. But that doesn't stop the kidnapped girl's grandfather from placing the call and getting Speed on the case.

Plot Synopsis:

A 1940s pulp fiction hero comes to life in this light-hearted action-adventure. When a girl is abducted by white slavers, her sister turns to Jake Speed, star of a popular serial adventure series, for help. Together they write the latest chapter in Speed's hair-raising career as the fearless duo travels to exotic Africa to rescue the kidnapped girl.
