Reviews

Officer Vince Faraday (David Lyons) was a good cop trying to clean up a corrupt city. Framed for murder and left for dead, he suddenly found himself separated from his family and forced into hiding. Now, inspired by his son’s favourite comic book hero, he’s taking the law into his own hands, and playing a deadly game of chess with the powerful kingpin who framed him. With the hope of one day reuniting with his family, The Cape is sending a loud message to all criminals...run.

But it really isn't.

In Palm City Vince Faraday is a happy man, a good cop, a good husband, a good father. Until one day he receives a mysterious message from Internet whistle blower "Orwell" advising him where the notorious crime lord "Chess" is shipping illegal weapons into Palm City. Vince trusts one person to go with him to uncover the shipment, that one person however betrays him and suddenly Vince finds himself on the run - a victim of an elaborate set up naming him as "Chess".

In order for Vince to clear his name and win back his family, he assumes the persona of "The Cape", his son's favourite comic book character. Now with the help of "Orwell" and "The Carnival Of Crime" he strives to obtain the evidence that will vindicate him and allow him to go home.

OK - sounds cheesy doesn't it? But it isn't, The Cape has been brilliantly made, the cinematography and story telling are cleaverly done so Vince comes off as a real man doing what he must unstead of another moody broody caped cruisader. He doesn't always say the right thing, he doesn't accent a stupid voice, he just is who he is (with the addition of a cape - obviously). The supporting cast of "The Carnival Of Crime" adds the manditory comic relief without coming off as slapstick characters - there's Vinny Jones for that (well, he does play a character called "Scales").

Unfortunately this series fell victim to the "great TV show but just not quite enough viewers" syndrome and was axed after just one season, meaning the story was never completed.

Great new super hero show, Vinny jones playing great bad guy, some good characters especially the circus, some cheesy moments ( i dont mean a savoury snack either )but overall a really good show. Why did they cancel after one season???? Had just begun to see the potential, for me the circus ringleader, maxamillion stole the show for me, anyone who liked the early HEROES should like this, worth a look :-)

Sadly cancelled after one season, so the story remains untold, but a great performance by Summer Glau.
a must for Glau fan's collection

I love everything super hero but wasn't sure about this as the series was axed. All I can say is travesty decision by the producers. Totally original, brilliant and very likeable characters. Terric show, you wont be disappointed.

I loved watching this on TV so was really happy when it came out on DVD. It is nice to be able to watch it whenever I want.

This had great potential as a series and I watched it with a fair amount of hope - after episode 4 I skipped past a couple just to see if it moved on - it was just too slow!!

Once the story moved past the whiny mopey 'everything sucks' phase it became quite enjoyable - fun, action packed and with good story lines. It's just a shame it started so slowly - it's no doubt the reason the show got cancelled. If I'd had to wait about 6 weeks for a show to get good I'd have given up as well.

Thankfully I could watch this in one go and because I could skip a bit I can rate it on it's later episodes - which were actually quite good. It's just a shame it will only be as good as the shows it put out - half of which were painful.
