Part Captain America, part Evil Dead doofus Ash, the anachronistic Blackheart is a genetically enhanced World War II soldier who wakes up in modern-day New York to fend off a well-organized creature cabal. But despite the promisingly cheeky setup, Blackheart is done in by a truly pun-laden script by Twin Peaks scribe Robert Engels and some horribly hokey effects. Hardly smashing stuff.
