Super Capers begins as a campy tribute to comic book heroes and their 1960s and '70s TV incarnations, but quickly descends into an ineptly paced, toothless lampoon of sci-fi and fantasy films.

Intended as a campy riff on comic-book antics, Super Capers is instead a monumental negative achievement: a super catastrophe.

Slower than a glacier at the South Pole. More powerful than the strongest insomnia cure. Able to empty theaters with a single frame. It's a turkey! It's a Hindenburg! It's Super Capers!

Featuring the production values of a commercial for a local used-car dealership in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Super Capers is a pathetic grab bag of spoofs.

[A] woefully toothless send-up of superhero silliness. Indeed, Super Capers is in need of its own creative rescuing.

Even if you manage to suspend your disbelief and to check your brain at the door, Super Capers still feels lazy, dull, painfully juvenile and void of any real thrills, laughs or even unintentionally funny moments.
