I was beyond ecstatic when I found Mystery Men at Tunes for $5. I had originally watched this movie when I was younger and it was the inspiration for the first book I ever wrote (which I later turned into a short story titled “The Warrior”, which was published earlier this year in Freedom Fiction Journal).
When the city’s most famous super hero, Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear) is captured by the villain Casanova Frankenstein (Geoffrey Rush) it’s up to seven amateur superheroes to band together and help save the city.
There’s the Shoveler (William H. Macey) who is the best shoveler he knows; Blue Raja (Hank Azaria) is a fork flinging, British mama’s boy; Mr. Furious (Ben Stiller) uses his anger to focus his powers; the Bowler (Janeane Garofalo) whose power comes from her fathers skull which is embedded into a bowling ball; the Spleen (Paul Reubens) whose power is silent, but deadly; the Sphinx (Wes Studi) who’s a philosophical guru and life coach; and Invisible Boy (Kel Mitchell) who can only perform his power of invisibility when no one is watching.
Together will the heroes have time to save Captain Amazing and the city or will they only face failure?
Filled with action and adventure, Mystery Men is a humorous comedy that shows you don’t need super human powers to save the city.
