I just saw this,I'm so glad a lot of people opened their eyes and stop comparing this team to the Setlzerberg team.Sure,the movie relies a little to much on pop culture references,and they don't leave time between one gag and the next.But overrall is funny enough to make you remember why you liked the SCARY MOVIE's and the Z.A.Z. spoofs,and also why you like superhero movies(irony,right?).
 
I give this 6/10.

Typical Hollywood. Their movie gets a few postive reviews for test audiences, then they already plan a sequel before a single ticket is sold. And that is why we razz them!

Yeah, when you're copying from books that are in segments, stuff will be left out for later. However, "Star Wars" was meant to be a stand-alone movie (Lucas thought it was going to be an epic failure). It wasn't until the movie became a success that the sequels came to be. But nowadays, Hollywood skips that part and goes straight into three-movie deals in which the first movies are full of plot holes and they aren't sure if it will be a success to begin with ... like a book that has missing pages, it's doesn't make a for a good read.

But that means half the movie is missing. Do you pay for books that have missing pages? No, so why pay for movies with missing scenes that explain plot and characters? When this stuff is missing, the movie is flawed and imcomplete, and having a sequel afterwards is no excuse. It's poor writing, plain and simple.

I honestly thought story-wise, the film could have been its own original superhero-comedy movie like Hancock. I really liked the story but the jokes were unfunny. Take out all of the pop culture references in the other spoof movies and replace it with toilet humor and you get SM.

I would say not nearly as over the top in terms of gross out humor. If you like all the superhero movies of the past decade, I guess you'll get a chuckle out of it.

It's not as low brow as Selterberg, but it's just as stupid.

Spoof-off of Superhero Movies, and unlike those other superhero movies, this was NOT a Box-Office blockbuster; hey, wait a minute, there have been other superhero movies that weren't Box Office blockbusters either.
The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.
