Movie Review: Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie


Rama is back.

This is certainly “Captain Underpants” first movie, but does it live up to what the title suggests, ‘epic?’ Let’s just put it this way, the humor doesn’t land most of the time. It doesn’t do enough exaggeration, which usually can make kids laugh, kids who are clearly this movie’s target audience. It tries too hard to make their parents laugh instead. At least not until halfway through the end when the story busts out a weapon that can enlarge or shrink objects. But what it lacks in funny, “Captain Underpants” makes up for it in characters that entertain.

Based on the worldwide sensation and best-selling book series, “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie” voice stars Kevin Hart, Ed Helms and Thomas Middleditch and it’s about two pranksters/best friends, George and Harold, who hypnotize their mean principal into thinking he’s a dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.

I was never actually familiar with the book series, I’ve heard about this “Captain Underpants” fellow but mostly from bits and pieces told by fans of the books. It’s a different kind of superhero movie because it’s a mistaken identity story so that itself is entertaining enough to follow. I don’t know if it’s strong enough to capture children’s attention span but as I said earlier, once the shrinking weapon is introduced, everybody’s having a good time at least at the screening I attended because people love seeing parts of a person or parts of an object be bigger or smaller than the sum of their existence. It’s a type of exaggeration that would tickle anybody’s funny bone and it fits the villain’s mission which has a lot to do with laughter.

So overall, it’s a ‘first epic movie’ that could be much better but it does its job as a family animated film. The themes of friendship and understanding a person from their point of view, will hit home. Captain Underpants definitely would make the easiest cosplay if you think about it, all you have to do if you were a guy is just shave your head bald, wear a red cape and an over-sized breeze underwear and voila, you’re ready for comic-con.
