Son of the Mask
This newest film in the “Mask” series focuses on aspiring cartoonist Tim Avery (Kennedy) who’s feeling reluctant to become a father when he finds that he has to take care of a baby with amazing abilities.. somehow, the baby has the powers of the Mask of Loki, a mythological object that transforms its user into a manic shapeshifter alter-ego. As bad as a baby with godlike powers might seem, the ‘really’ bad news is that Loki (Cumming) wants his mask back…
Son of the Mask is a classic example of how to make a film that is NOT Dove “Family-Approved.” The language goes over the top for its intended audience of pre-teen kids. The use of “Frickin” clearly shows the writer’s lack of awareness of who his target market really is. With strong occult overtones, including several possessions by the god Oden, and a summons complete with an incantation, this film will offend more people than it appeals to.
