5.0 out of 5 stars It could have been very cheesy..... 14 Jan 2013
By Crooty

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great 3 Nov 2012
By Paul

Watched this The Cape - Season 1 [DVD] over the last week and found it very entertaining although a bit silly and contrived in places - but all that said, if there was a season 2 available I would certainly have bought it as well, especially as it was actually getting better as the season progressed. Overall a good fun 'romp' with plenty to entertain (as long as you don't spend too much time worrying about the plot holes and inconsistencies) and keep you watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 15 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
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 :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Series 17 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
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.
