Critic Reviews for Super Capers

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7)

Super Capers begins as a campy tribute to comic book heroes and their 1960s and '70s TV incarnations, but quickly descends into an ineptly paced, toothless lampoon of sci-fi and fantasy films.

Featuring the production values of a commercial for a local used-car dealership in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Super Capers is a pathetic grab bag of spoofs.

A bizarrely misguided attempt to revive -- and spoof -- the classic B-movie, Super Capers is the kind of experience that makes you want your 93 minutes back.

Top Critic

Intended as a campy riff on comic-book antics, Super Capers is instead a monumental negative achievement: a super catastrophe.

This first feature by Ray Griggs wears its Mad Magazine influences like a badge of honor but fails to round up enough laughs to save the day.

You'd have to have X-ray vision to find a semblance of a plot here, yet you'd have to be blind to overlook the cheapness of the special effects and the ineptitude of the direction.

Audience Reviews for Super Capers

Super Capers begins as a campy tribute to comic book heroes and their 1960s and '70s TV incarnations, but quickly descends into an ineptly paced, toothless lampoon of sci-fi and fantasy films. the trailer is better than the movie-what does that say?

This might be the most disappointing movie I've ever seen. I was very very very excited to see it. I love superheroes and I love the cast. But this film was simply terrible. It was beyond cheesy and just terribly written all around. How Ray Griggs got the people he did to agree to be in it, I'll never know.

I wish this film had had a heart... And a brain... And really a full body transplant altogether.
