Aro Recommended Mystery Men


USA 1999, 121 minutes
Dir. Kinka Usher
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Comedy, Science Fiction / Fantasy

Topics: Superheroes.


Aroview: Doing for the super-hero genre what PLEASANTVILLE did for 50s sitcoms, this frequently hilarious spoof sets a rag-tag team of super-hero wannabes into serious action when conceited crime-fighting ace Captain Amazing is ensnared by dastardly super-villain Casanova Frankenstein.

In exposing the men behind the silly costumes, the sardonic script and gleaming production design recalls the spirit of Tim Burton, palling only during the few action scenes.
