4.0 out of 5 stars A Superhero Comedy With Heart May 22 2013
Two brothers. One a nerd. One a karate expert. Both grown up and living with their grandma.

Darryl and Kevin Walker (Damon Wayons and David Alan Grier) have lived in the rough part of town with their grandma since they were kids. As boys they’d run around the apartment with towels tied around their necks, aping Batman and Robin. Now, grown up, Kevin works at the TV station doing over-the-top news stories about aliens while Darryl works as a repairman and has a knack for inventing. After their grandma is killed along with several others while working to support the campaign of a wholesome, upcoming mayor, Darryl vows to make a difference in his city and invents bulletproof long johns, transforming himself into Blankman. He even makes a costume for his brother . . . who quickly refuses to join him. Taking cues from the campy 1960s Batman series, Blankman sets out to help others and uses this super alterego to work through his grandmother’s death. Meanwhile, Kevin lets Darryl go about his crimefighting business since he’s busy trying to woo beautiful reporter Kimberly Jonz (Robin Givens), who does real news stories several floors above him. Of course, tensions rise as Kimberly seems to have a thing for Blankman and admires the superhero’s heroic efforts.

Eventually, Kevin learns who was behind their grandmother’s death: the city’s crime boss, Michael Minelli (Jon Polito). This time, Kevin asks to join Darryl on his crusade and since Darryl is the every-faithful brother, he produces the outfit Kevin rejected and Kevin becomes Other Guy, Blankman’s side kick. The two take it upon themselves to hunt down Minelli and bring him to justice, making him pay for what he did once and for all.

Blankman is superhero comedy at its finest.

Not the most entertaining film nor the most hilarious but it does have some funny laughs in it. A few and too far between.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Funny, Goofy Comedy. April 19 2002
A Mentally Challenge Man (Damon Wayans) with a Knack of Making Something New with Virious Gadgets of Junk, who is Trying to Change the City of Chicago, who wants to Put-Down the Violence from Street Gangs and Another Crimes. He decide to Built Himself a Crime Fighting Costumes with Weapons of his Own, with the Help of his Older, Wiser Reporter Brother (David Alan Grier) and the Younger Brother becomes a Superhero!
Directed by Mike Binder (Indian Summer) made a goofy light comedy thanks to Damon Wayans-(TV's My Wife and Kids) Dumb Enjoyable Performabce as the Title Role. Robin Givens (Boomerang) plays the Reporter, who has affections of Wayans. The Film was a Box Office Flop in Theaters but Is more Enjoy on Video than it Did in Theaters. It's a Not-Bad Superhero Spoof Suffers from Too Much Language for Kids and Not enough Laughs for Adults. The Film may be Forgotten but It's Still Enjoyable One. Grade:B.
