Trailer Probe : The Cape

May 19, 2010

Trailer Probe reviews sci-fi movie trailers so you can spend one minute of computer time wisely. Geek explosion content is why you will like it, dork disengagement level is why you won't. Geek parts per million is the final score on a scale of one to a billion.

The Cape

Dork disengagement level: I love TV shows that show a child sobbing.

Surely he must tell his kid his secret identity. That's just not cool.

Surely he must tell his wife his secret identity. Unless he wants to put the moves on Summer Glau.

So the guy and his boy read a comic book together. Then he dresses up as the character from the comic book and appears in real life. That comic book company will sue his leather pants off.

Geek explosion content: Summer Glau is in it! The Summer Glau! ( She's on my mind.)

I was worried this would be a cop show where the guy happens to wear a costume. But the trailer shows non-mundane super-gizmos and comic book style fighting.

I'm not asking for super villains in spandex. Seriously. I'm not.

The crazy circus dude said the cape is "made entirely of spider silk."

That cape is The Bomb. Do people still call things The Bomb? If not, I'm starting it up again.

Geek parts per million: 700,000.
