Overview

Mark Hamill directs and stars in the straight-to-video mockumentary Comic Book: The Movie, largely filmed on-location at the 2002 Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA. Comic book fan Donald Swan Hamill is hired to make a documentary about his favorite superheroes: Commander Courage and Liberty Ladd. A big Hollywood film company has funded an action blockbuster about the legendary superhero, although with an updated image. Commander Courage becomes an aggressive anti-terrorist played by Bruce Easley Daran Norris and his sidekick becomes sexed-up eye candy Papaya Smith Donna D'Errico. Traditionalist Swan fights to save the dignity of his beloved hero. His documentary crew consists of studio executive Taylor Donohue Roger Rose and intoxicated cameraman Ricky Jess Harnell. A consultant on the project is Leo Matuzik Billy West, the grandson of the original character creator. Kevin Smith, Hugh Hefner, Bruce Campbell, and Stan Lee appear as themselves. Legendary actors Sid Caesar and Jonathan Winters play a pair of old army buddies who reminisce about the good old days.

    Fun for fans of Cartoons and Comics

    As a movie, not so good. As a dvd entertainment experience, very good. You have to watch all the bonus stuff to really enjoy it. wouldn't work in theatres. if you like cartoons, you'll like finally seeing all the voice actors involved. really fun. lots of excellent fun comic book (but mostly cartoon) behind the scenes stuff. fun! 4 stars, but don't expect it to be a real 'movie'. it's not. more like a bunch of documentaries on cartoons, comics, and b-movies.
