5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD for a Serial or Cap Fan, December 27, 2003
This review is from: Adventures of Captain Marvel (DVD)
The Big Red Cheese never looked better - this DVD release of the 12-episode serial, "The Adventures of Captain Marvel" is truly excellent. While remembering that this is a 1940s-era serial, the overall production values are remarkably high. Much has already been said about the flying effects, which are surprisingly good - a full-size dummy was used in daylight photography to make a truly realistic-looking effect, even with other moving subjects in the frame. The action is strong, and Cap reminds you that (1) this was made in the 40's, and is quite a bit more brutal than the PC adventures of Superman, and (2) he really was a kid, and seemed to actually enjoy the action! The secrecy of the identity of the Scorpion was maintained well throughout the serial, as they constantly tried to redirect suspicion throughout the group of scientists. One final question: just what was Whitey's role in all this? Answer for yourself when viewing this terrific serial!
