Thanks to 20th Century Fox we had the opportunity to see ‘Captain Underpants – The First Epic Movie’ before its cinematic release. This is our review of the film, but – as usual – no matter what we say, we recommend that you still go to your local cinema and see the film because there is no better critic than yourself!
Best buddies George (Kevin Hard) and Harold (Thomas Middleditch) live to transform their dull school into a fun place by performing prank after prank. However, after they’re caught sabotaging the science fair the mean school Principal Mr. Krupp (Ed Helms) administers the worst punishment they can imagine and sentence the pair to enrol in different classes, threatening to end their friendship.
Harold and George freak out and to steal back the proof of their wrongdoing they try to hypnotise principal Krupp. To their surprise, it works! So Mr Krupp begins to think he is the overenthusiastic ‘Captain Underpants’ , a superhero character created by them for their own comics.
‘Captain Underpants – The First Epic Movie’ is a film created for the entire family but clearly aimed at children about six or seven years old. The movie targets their audience with funny names like ‘Professor Poopypants’, lots of potty jokes and childish pranks. Children will love the silliness of Captain Underpants for the mere fact that he doesn’t wear pants (and his funny personality).
The animation, based on the novels of the same name by Dav Pilkey, comes with an all-star cast, good comedy and tons of action that will keep your little ones thoroughly engaged during the film.
