Blankman plays it light and silly but not so broadly that the movie collapses into chaos.

Steve Crum

Sort of inspired, but really lame, superhero premise.

Clint Morris

Damon Wayans loses credibility in 90 minute movie shocker!

Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle

The title Blankman should be warning enough: There's nothing here.

This isn't the worst superhero parody ever created, it's just one of them.

Scott Weinberg

Aims for the most simplistic sort of slapstick ... and fails even at that.

Rita Kempley
Washington Post

Wayans's attempt to take a bite out of crime doesn't really work. In fact, he's shooting a blank.

Austin Chronicle

Blankman's use of the cheesy effects from the Batman TV show, including Polito trying to imitate The Penguin, was initially a good idea but the execution is simply horrible and this is what winds up ruining the film.

Some of this is mildly amusing but there is a mean spirit that undercuts the laughs and the violence is surprisingly harsh.

Love Damon Wayans, but this was terrible.
Logan Gossett
An unfortunately unfunny, unlikable, uninteresting, uninspiring, unbelievable bad film that makes me sad due to the talent behind the camera.

A cheapass mindless Superhero flick - which I rather enjoyed. Funny stuff. Damon rocks!
Joseph Eastmond
Off-Color Humor by the master himself! What can I say Wayans puts the Whacked in the "W" in Wayans. I enjoyed alot more than I thought I would.
Jason Spencer

Pointless, the entire cast's acting was just awful and the whole movie was made entirely from comedy/super hero cliches. Even though, this could very well… More
