'SuperGuy' an uproarious, well-thought-out movie
9 July 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"SuperGuy: Beyond the Cape" is an absolutely hilarious comedy exploring the societal absurdities of our time and pop culture's fascination with super heroes. There are great performances here, some of them by relatively unknown names. I have simply not seen a movie so consistently funny in a long time. The makers of this took the time to think out the comic and logical implications of their ideas and they exploit the comic possibilities to the max! The idea of exploring the ramifications of a super hero living in the 'real world' is so ripe with absurd potential it's a wonder no feature film director never took a stab at it before(to my knowledge, anyway). The satire of the current news media is particularly sharp here. I also got a kick out of the SuperGuy religious cult stuff and the portrait of the obsessive 'fan boy' sort. Some reviewers tended to compare this film to "Spinal Tap," which seems to have achieved almost iconic status in film satire. I think, however, that the humour in "Spinal Tap" was rather scattergun and a little too broad - I liked it, but I thought it could have been more. "SuperGuy," on the other hand, has a mercilessly tight focus. Some of the little touches are quite telling. Even the extras are up to the rest of the movie. It's nice to see people taking the time and effort to get things right. I totally recommend this movie. The laughs just don't let up. Greg Cameron, Surrey, B.C., Canada.
