It won't be for everyone by any means, but Captain Underpants: The First Movie would be easy to overlook as another kids-only waste of money. But that's not the case. The film subverts this every step of the way and constantly turns in new, unexpected directions in order to surprise and entertain its audience from the start to the end.
Captain Underpants is a very popular book series that doesn’t seamlessly translate to the big screen, and the filmmakers can’t solve this problem. The result is a cinematic wedgie: a little too dark, a little too nihilistic, a little too empty.
This Movie Is My Favourite Superheroes Movie Because It's Was Based Of An Book By Dav Pilkey (Even Dav Pilkey Was 52 Years old) The Voice Cast Was Amazing, The Animation Was Maded By Dreamworks Animation, And The Music Was Good! YOU SHOULD GET THIS MOVIE
Since the movie is based on a children's book, children under 10 will be the only ones who will find it funny. It's not entirely bad, but it shows that both Dreamworks and Disney are in need of a new creative impulse, not a technological one.
I was a fan of the books when I was younger, so even though I'm in my mid-20s now I was somewhat looking forward to this. But it ended up being a boring, lazily animated romp (it only cost $38 million compared to the average animated cost of around $125 million), and even the big name voice cast seems to be phoning it in. Kids in my audience didn't even seem to loving it that much, which makes sense seeing as this movie is 15 years overdue...
