Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “A good guy with no powers joins a superhero team with no clue against a bad guy with no shame. Would-be superhero, Ed Gruberman, who possesses no super powers must join a team of misfit heroes-in-training known as The Super Capers. Having only faith, Gruberman must travel through time to uncover an evil plot involving some gold bullion, a fiery femme fatale, and a criminal mastermind with a dark secret about Ed’s past.”

Positive—This was an interesting movie. I still can’t decide if it is “Christian,” although the hero prays to God and what he prays for comes to pass, so people believe that is his super-power. However, the guy himself seems to think it’s a coincidence. And, the protagonist does do something bad, so not that great a portrayal of a Christian, if so. However, there is some redemption.

As far as moral content, it was great! Watched it with my 3 young (6, 7, 9) children and wasn’t embarrassed by anything. The word “cr*p” was said 4-5 times, and a couple of the guys were shown just wearing boxers and a top, but it wasn’t suggestive. There were a few kissing scenes I could have done without, but they weren’t erotic. It was very silly, but it is a farce, so it is supposed to be. We found it an entertaining way to spend an evening.
