"Super Capers" is...not AS bad as I thought it would be...??
20 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

I just watched this off HBO GO last night, and just looking at the overall production values (and the fact I never heard of it in the 6 years since it was released), I thought it would be absolutely horrible. Now it was bad, don't get me wrong, but not AS horrible as I thought it would be. It's got a great cast- Michael Rooker, Justin Whalin, Clint Howard, Tom Sizemore, Adam West (not as "Batman", but as "Manbat" LOL), Danielle Harris, etc.. and I did chuckle every now and then (that Arnold-imitating robot- stupid, yes, but I couldn't help laughing at it- more so than with it.. o.O ).

Well, the funniest stuff in the movie for me (other than the silly robot) was some of the stuff more at the beginning with like Clint Howard and Tom Sizemore, but...if you want to see a super-hero comedy dealing with the sorta super-hero mythology, and playing around with that, see something like "Mystery Men" (1999) or, better yet, 2008's wonderful Peter Berg-directed "Hancock", starring Will Smith. This movie TBH seems to be more of a "kiddie movie"...
