REVIEWS

Review by John Elrod 2 (posted on 11-May-2005)

This is a movie that focuses on what Hollywood is doing to the comic book industry. Mark Hamill did a great job at creating a completly new comic book character with: a background, old cover art, and the family history of the creator. Hamill plays a comic book historian who loves old comic books, and he is brought on to direct a documentary about his favorite comic book heroes for a new movie about one of his favorite characters, Commander Courage. Little does he know that the film's makers are planning to revamp the entire story to make the movie more "appealing" to today's audience, but he can't stand for this and he sets out to save the character that he loves. This film does a terrific job at showing what goes on in the comic book world. Nearly the entire movie is set at the San Diego Comic-Con, which is a convention for comic books, video games, and all things entertainment. CB:TM also stars a bundle of other great talents: Billy West, Jess Harnell, Roger Rose, Donna D'Errico, Tom Kenny, and Daran Norris. It also features guest appearances from Kevin Smith, Stan Lee, Matt Groening, Bruce Campbell, Hugh Hefner, Sid Caesar, Jonathan Winters, Ray Harryhausen, and Bill Mumy. With such a wonderfully talented cast, this movie couldn't help but be excellent. This is THE movie for any comic book fan, and I give it 4/4 stars.
