Michael Rooker also says "Bunch of schmucks. Hey, what do you think you're doing? The movie is not over yet. Get back here and sit down and watch this, and don't forget to pick up your popcorn when you leave." There is also an additional scene and says "to be continued". See more »

Ed Gruberman: Hey! Why don't you use your, uh, mind thing and pop open the trunk?
Herman Brainard: No problem.
[Herman makes mind control sound effect]
Ed Gruberman: What are you doing?
Herman Brainard: I'm making a sound effect. No superhero can use his powers without a good sound effect in the background. Come on, help me out.
Ed Gruberman: Really?
Herman Brainard: I'm not doing it without!
Ed Gruberman: Alright! Okay. Uh...

somewhere between boring, unfunny and stupid
8 January 2012 | by dienSee all my reviews

When I first learnt about his film, I was intrigued. When I saw the trailer, I was more than interested. A funny superhero parody, with movie references and comic style drawings? This was going to be sweet. Unfortunately, it wasn't.

Basically, nothing works here - the jokes fall flat, the parody is barely present and the is replaced by unbearable campiness. All the funny moments can be seen in the trailer.

The actors did their job, cashed their pay-checks and went home immediately forgetting what movie they had just been in. The best one is b far Adam West and he's in it for about two minutes. That should tell you about the quality of acting.

Whatever the authors intentions were, they didn't succeed. For me the worst part were the constant movie references - after about 30 minutes they got incredibly annoying.

I can't recommend it to anyone. It's bad. Not in a good way, more in a "how long until the end credits?" way.
