THE PLOT:

The city is protected by Captain Amazing, a self centered hero only wanting fame and fortune. But when this glory hound is kidnapped by the twisted and evil genius known as Casanova Frankenstein. Who will stop his mad plot? The wanna-be heroes, who only want to help people.

Lead by Mister Furious, the team must find a way to get their strange and somewhat lame powers working or risking losing the city to a madman.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I like to use the original comic from a comic book movie for the backdrop of comic book movies, but for the life of me I couldn't find anything with these characters on it. Mystery Men is a real comic that's for sure but I think that these characters were never in said comic. Plus only the Bowler had a real super powers, the rest were just lame. It would have been cooler if Mister Furious got stronger as grew angrier, instead of just looking like a child throwing a tantrum. But on the other hand it does have a great cast and it is exciting and funny, 7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd again on this one, cute movie but why? The story is interesting if not somewhat annoying, the acting was good and the cast does a great job. But makes you wonder what the writer was thinking. 7 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ COSTUMES (They were cool.)
+ STORY (Cute.)
+ HUMOR (It was funny.)
+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- LAME POWERS (Most of the powers were just lame for the exception of the BOWLER.)
- ANNOYING (It does get annoying at times.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't one for comic book movies, then this isn't for you.)
