Movie Info

Are you ready for a new kind of superhero -- a thirty-something virgin in long underwear? Darryl Walker (Damon Wayans) is a bright but socially inept man with a gift for inventing things but little skill for functioning in the real world. His brother Kevin (David Alan Grier) works on a low-class tabloid news show featuring beautiful anchorwoman Kimberley Jonz (Robin Givens), whom he secretly loves. The Walkers live in Metro City, Illinois, a city that's been hit with a massive crime wave after

Blankman plays it light and silly but not so broadly that the movie collapses into chaos.

The title Blankman should be warning enough: There's nothing here.

Wayans's attempt to take a bite out of crime doesn't really work. In fact, he's shooting a blank.

Sort of inspired, but really lame, superhero premise.

This isn't the worst superhero parody ever created, it's just one of them.

Blankman's use of the cheesy effects from the Batman TV show, including Polito trying to imitate The Penguin, was initially a good idea but the execution is simply horrible and this is what winds up ruining the film.

Damon Wayans loses credibility in 90 minute movie shocker!

Aims for the most simplistic sort of slapstick ... and fails even at that.

Some of this is mildly amusing but there is a mean spirit that undercuts the laughs and the violence is surprisingly harsh.

Audience Reviews for Blankman

A cheapass mindless Superhero flick - which I rather enjoyed. Funny stuff. Damon rocks!

Super Reviewer

An unfortunately unfunny, unlikable, uninteresting, uninspiring, unbelievable bad film that makes me sad due to the talent behind the camera.
