Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

Though created in earlier DC Comic book stories, Mari McCabe, female, African in origin, spirited, resolute, and occasionally fallible, is a superhero for the 21st century. Vixen: The Movie, the first full-length feature to focus on this young crime fighter, who is nothing if not a stunning model of boldness, confidence, and empathy for girls who love action, should find fans of all genders. And the good news is, the folks who've put together these webisodes now released as a film got the introduction right. As Mari McCabe finds answers to her strange, mysterious past, the audience comes along for the ride. Vixen's journey as a child from the heart of Africa to a young adult on the streets of Detroit is carefully plotted and dynamically recreated. Only the fierceness of its action sequences and a sprinkling of naughty words will keep it from younger kids who might also respond to Vixen and her eclectic animal gifts.
