Mystery Men (1999) 88 Films Blu-ray: A funny superhero spoof

British label 88 Films is releasing Director Kinka Usher’s underrated gem, Mystery Men (1999) on Blu-ray. Stars Ben Stiller.

Champion City already has a superhero, the appropriately named Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear), but that doesn’t deter the city’s seven quirky amateur crime-fighters, who use the Captain’s capture at the hands of villain Casanova Frankenstein (Geoffrey Rush) as motivation to prove themselves. The only problem is that their strange powers — silverware hurling, bowling, shovel skills, incompetent invisibility and deadly flatulence — aren’t doing them any favors.

Release date: May 18, 2020
Genre: Comedy / Fantasy
