Movie Review: 'Comic-Con Episode VI: A Fan's Hope' -- 3 stars
Comic-Con Episode VI: A Fan's Hope
Documentary by Morgan Spurlock
If you've never been to a comic book convention -- a bit of a misnomer these days, as film and television have taken over the joint -- then Morgan Spurlock's new documentary will certainly be an eye opener.
The spectacle that is the San Diego Comic-Con is captured by the filmmaker, following the story of a few different characters, from the budding artist, to the veteran comic book dealer, to the folks who dress up in extravagant costumes. Spurlock also chats with folks such as Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, filmmaker Kevin Smith and actor Seth Rogan, who give their take on the show.
It would have been interesting for Spurlock to have dug a little deeper into the history of the convention, but as it stands now, it's certainly an entertaining, enlightening ride.
