This movie we saw for free in the movie theatre with passes given to us at a convention. My wife and I took our two sons (age 6 and 4) at the time, and they absolutely loved it. Guess what, so did the other kids. As a parent it was silly, though not as stupid as say Sponge-Bob, but it was appropriate. There really wasn't anything in the movie that a young child shouldn't see. And no, I don't let my kids watch Transformers or Lord of the Rings at this age. They threw in a little religion in there, but in a non-forceful way, and with no real denomination. It is a movie I can properly say I felt good that my kids watched it.

Okay - I am a little biased, I adore the corny super-hero genre! This is LOW budget movie that is completely charming. My kids and I laughed and watched it several times...it is just cute and reminds me of the old TV shows I grew up watching. Light entertainment at its best!

Let me start off by saying how much I hate this movie. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it! I really hate this movie. I know what you are thinking, "Why the heck did you give the movie a 5-star rating then?" A totally valid question given how much I hate this movie. I felt obligated to give this movie a 5-star rating because of my 4-year old son's opinion of this movie. He absolutely loves this movie. He saw it once and was an instant fan, such a fan that he started to quote little phrases that he heard once. I am pretty positive this movie was made for children, maybe not toddler aged children, but none the less, children. Being such I had to rate this movie as my son would.
When the movie first started I thought it was going to turn into one of those really awfully made Christian empowerment movies, I am not comfortable showing such things to my toddler son so I was about to shut it off, but he was really enjoying all of the really bad jokes so I decided to ride it out a bit. From my perspective, the acting is bad, the sets are bad, the costumes are bad, the story is bad, the sound track is bad, but all of those things I hate my son loves. It has been months since we have seen this movie and he still talks about it like we saw it yesterday so I bought it for him.
My advise to parents who get this movie for their children, go do chores while your kid watches this film and let them enjoy it.

This movie is bad, and don't just take my word for it: 0% critics score and 13% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Super Capers missed the mark for what it was trying to achieve. Ray Griggs wanted to make a campy superhero movie a la 1960s Batman, but with '80s style as an homage to the films he grew up loving, Star Wars, Star Trek, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Back to the Future. Instead, it feels like a modern lampoon parody movie with homages to classic movies that are so blatant they feel like knock-offs. I wanted and was expecting a cheesy movie, but the cheesy dialogue was cooked too fast on a burner that was too hot. The movie stops way too often to admire it's own work or explain the bad jokes. Delivering good cheese should be done the same as a cool guy with a huge block-buster explosion. Never. Look. Back. Drop the bomb; keep moving forward. Imagine how bad 'Airplane' would have been if after every subtle joke Leslie Nielsen would turn to the camera with a look that says, "How about that one, folks?"

Yeah, this is a safe-for-kids movie, but I can't call it a kids movie. Who is the hero that the kids are supposed to look up to? It's not the main protagonist, Ed Gruberman. He's a schmuck who becomes an accidental con-artist that manages to weasel his way out of bad situations with dumb luck when he realizes he's about to get caught. That's not exactly someone I would want kids aspiring to be. Granted, if Justin Whalin could have delivered this character, then I would have really liked this movie, but remember, I'm a jaded adult. Plus, none of the other cast members truly redeem themselves either. Incompetence prevails is the main theme of the movie, which is not typically the lesson parents want to see in children's entertainment.

This movie made me sad. I loved the old Batman tv show with Adam West, but this in NOTHING like that. The jokes are stale the plot is boring and nobody involved in this project cared about it. It feels like it was some rich kid director that wanted to make a film and had his parents pay for it. What a waste.

It's a goofy, give your brain a break movie. I think people expected too much from it, if you want a movie to throw in to entertain your kids, or something that will make you laugh while watching something with them then it's the perfect movie for you.

Somewhat of a parody of superhero movies as it doesn't take itself seriously. A lot of the actors were in either superhero movies or TV shows. For instance, the lead actor played Jimmy Olsen in Lois & Clark on seasons 2-4. If you are looking for a serious superhero movie with stellar special fx then this isn't for you. If you like to have fun while watching a movie, give this a try.

4.5 out of 5 stars. Fun Fun Fun Fun Fun. Clean & for the whole family. Play find the homage to your favorite movies & tv series. Also, stick around thru the end of the credits for an additional scene. Thanks, from me, to all the people who allowed them to use your stuff or parody them. Helped make it great. Honestly, I bought the movie because of Danielle, whom I met back in March @ Horror Hound Weekend. She was really sweet so I am slowly buying her stuff. I was expecting a kids movie. However, it turned into more of a movie like FANBOYS for me. Enjoy.
