Super Scam

by Quarter of a Glass!

Just another day at the Super Hero Support Centre - Where your super problems are our super concerns.

Reviews

Exploding onto screen with a BLAM! and a WHAM! Things get quickly focused onto a call centre where heroes super problems are the operator's super concerns. From colour blindness to the big green dude struggling to come out for a 'hulkish' hero, the team ran the gammut of first world problems that those seeking truth and justice might theoretically encounter.

The operator here gave a star turn as a seemingly disinterested customer service rep, although Bat Guy upped the stakes with quips on cryptocurrency and his personal living situation.

Shot with a professional quality, the colour palette produced by your art department, the performances, and satirical script were the highlights. For me I found the plot a little hard to engage with, because whilst the issues faced were particularly humorous and cleverly gave the superhero film a human element, it felt a bit one sided in that we were told jokes but didn't really get too much from themt in terms of a story progression point of view. This was almost doubled down by the jokes being told over the phone providing even more distance for me as a viewer to the characters.

I'll admit the ending was reasonably well done and provided a bombastic comic tone to round things off, though.

Story: 2.5/5
Technical: 3.5/5
Elements: 3/5
Overall: 3/5
