Jack Shepard: Stop that. You're singing the alphabet. That's not a power. And your voice is average, it's not super.
Cindy Collins: It is, too, super.

Needed to be about the kids
24 July 2014 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Jack Shepard (Tim Allen) is disillusioned bitter former super-speed superhero and sole survivor Captain Zoom of Team Zenith. Dr. Grant (Chevy Chase) exposed the team to Gamma-13 which turned older brother Connor/Concussion to the dark side 30 years ago destroying the team. Now General Larraby (Rip Torn) in Area 52 and Grant bring back Jack with the help of psychologist Marsha Holloway (Courteney Cox) to train a new group of kids. Dylan West (Michael Cassidy) is a teen with invisibility and clairvoyance. Summer Jones (Kate Mara) has telekinetic powers and empathic senses. Tucker Williams (Spencer Breslin) can blow up parts of his body. Little Cindy Collins (Ryan Newman) has super strength.

Tim Allen is too bitter and sarcastic. Chevy Chase is silly without being funny. He's just a pathetic shadow of his former self. The adults are the problem of this movie. This needs to be about the kids. The little girl is actually quite funny. The kids need more screen time to develop. This is simply a badly thought out comic book movie.
