The Specials

Synopsis: For years, The Specials have been the also-rans of superheroes, getting whatever missions the better groups are too busy to take. As the 6th or 7th best superhero team in the world, The Specials are stuck with too much time on their hands. They have turned their energies inward, engaging in petty infighting, intra-group love affairs, financial squabbles and misguided attempts to better their image.

But now, that’s all about to change. With The Strobe (Thomas Haden Church), The Weevil (Rob Lowe) and Amok (Jamie Kennedy) leading the way, The Specials are on the threshold of greatness. The equivalent of winning the Oscar® for super-heroes, The Specials have inked a deal with the toy conglomerate KOSGRO TOYS to produce a line of action figures. So…”X-Men watch out. The Specials are coming!!” -Sci-Fi Channel Magazine

The Specials 7.5

For superhero geeks, mostly, as I don’t think anyone else would enjoy the “behind the scenes” satirical nature of this film. Plus which it’s extremely low budget. Extremely. Eek shock

But I liked it. Just the fact that it’s got superheroes means that I give it extra points (I used to collect when I was a kid, you see…) biggrin
