Slower than a glacier at the South Pole. More powerful than the strongest insomnia cure. Able to empty theaters with a single frame. It's a turkey! It's a Hindenburg! It's Super Capers!

[A] woefully toothless send-up of superhero silliness. Indeed, Super Capers is in need of its own creative rescuing.

Even if you manage to suspend your disbelief and to check your brain at the door, Super Capers still feels lazy, dull, painfully juvenile and void of any real thrills, laughs or even unintentionally funny moments.

[B]rutally stupid... consistently mistakes wholesale theft -- from beloved geek favorites from Star Wars to Back to the Future to The Matrix -- for creative cleverness...

The movie's only strength is the fabulous comic book/MAD magazine cartoon imagery by humorous illustrator Tom Richmond.

Superhero comedy is age appropriate but only so-so.

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.

Too much of the time though is wasted with moronic shenanigans and B-level acting by a cast that was obviously hired because they were affordable.

The first 10 minutes of this mirthless mess was interminable, and it didn't get any better. I'd feel cheated if I'd rented this one from the red box at Mickey D's.

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.

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.

Nothing here works.

Super Capers doesn't ever come close to justifying its existence.

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.

A witless send-up of pop-culture detritus like light sabers, Batmobiles and "Hasta la vista, baby."
