Movie Info

A wannabe superhero joins a team of bumbling heroes-in-training on a time-traveling mission to thwart an evil plot in this high-flying comedy featuring Clint Howard, Adam West, Tom Sizemore, and Doug Jones. Ed Gruberman (Justin Whalin) may not possess any actual superpowers, but his passion for fighting crime rivals that of even the greatest comic-book do-gooders. When Ed becomes a member of The Super Capers, an oddball team of aspiring superheroes, it seems as if his dream of fighting crime for real is about to come true. Upon discovering evidence of an evil plot involving gold bullion, an alluring femme fatale, and a powerful criminal mastermind, Ed travels back in time to prevent a disaster the likes of which the world has never seen.

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.

March 20, 2009 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

March 20, 2009 | Rating: 0/4 | Full Review…

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.

March 20, 2009

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

March 20, 2009 | Rating: .5/5 | Full Review…

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.

March 19, 2009

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.
