Starring Alan Arkin (Edward Scissorhands) as the most unusual of Superheroes and Christopher Lee (Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring) as his devilish Arch-nemesis, This is a classic superhero satire.
WWII Veteran Captain Invincible (Arkin) was a national hero until labelled a socialist during the anti-communist witch hunts of the 1950s. Now an overweight alcoholic hiding in Australia - Who's forgotten how to fly! - Invincible learns his arch enemy Mr. Midnight (Lee) is back, and has stolen the US Government's latest super weapon. Can the Captain get on the wagon and learn again to soar? Or will Mr. Midnight and his army of henchmen destroy the world?
With cameos from an Aussie cast including Graham Kennedy - as the PM, Chris Haywood and Bill Hunter, Captain Invincible is a madcap superhero spoof from talented Australian director Philippe Mora (Mad Dog Morgan).
