The Superhero Squad Show

Well what can I say about this one? I love the Marvel Universe and was keen to see the DVD based on the cute figures by the same name. This disc tells the story of the Infinity Gauntlet, which was actually a story that I read back in the day in the regular comics. 

I sat the kids down with me and we watched this movie together. For two reasons:

- 1 -  It's nice to watch stuff together

- 2 - I knew that this DVD was aimed at kids, and with children aged 7-10 with me, I knew I was going to get honest feedback

Sadly for the most part this was a fairly mediocre experience. Glaring flaws in continuity abounded, and I knew that for at least me, it was a let down. However it was the reaction of the kids that threw me the most as I didn't expect the criticisms that came from the smaller members of the house. 

Complaints ranged from inaccuracies such as when Dr Doom breaks free from his cell there is a hole in the wall. Flashing back there shortly afterward, there is no hole. Holes in many items magically disappear without explanation and it got to the point that even the youngest in the family was pointing them out and asking why things were the way they were. 

It's a bit of a juggling match really as the animation style is really cute and the kids have the toys from the series. The cartoon is totally loyal to the look of the toys, however I would imagine that this series is only really going to entertain even the very young as even the seven year old has not asked to watch the DVD since which has utterly amazed me. 

If you have younger people in the house, then it might be worth getting. It's certainly not expensive at $19.95 but personally I would strongly suggest that most of you will be best served by hiring at the local video shop.
