Damon Wayans Has done it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
18 May 2002 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Blankman is what you would call a parody. And what I mean by that is that this is a spoof of the famous Batman television series from the 1960's. The kind of stuff it spoofed was: a relative being killed, a gangster wanting to take over the city, having a dumb sidekick, bringing a journalist to the hide-out, ect. It was still a hilarious movie with some memorable moments though.

Science nerd Darrel Walker (Damon Wayans) has been working on some pretty stupid inventions lately. He even has a stupid robot named J5. Anyway, he and his older brother Kevin (David Alan Grier) live with their grandmother. When she is murdered by crime lord Michael Manellie (Jon Polito), Darrel becomes so depressed that he makes a costume and creates stupid weapons, he turns himself into: BLANKMAN! A crime-fighting super-hero that will stop at nothing until the streets of Detroit are safe again! He even meets the sexy reporter Kimberly Jonz (Robin Givens). Kevin eventually joins him, but in the mean time, Kevin is more than annoyed by Darrel's behavior.

Written, produced, and starring Damon Wayans (My Wife & Kids), Blankman is a hilarious spoof that will leave you cheering!
