Chicago Reader- Recommended

"...By design, it's an adolescent mess, akin to a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers episode written by 13-year-old boys on crank. Director Spenser Davis keeps everything moving at a breakneck pace for 55 minutes, packing in great gobs of intentionally amateurish theatricality (Lady Mauron magically dissolves by walking offstage in plain view of everyone). While both playwright and director would be wise to carve out a bit of breathing room in the action, if only to help audiences navigate several currently incomprehensible plot turns, the evening's furious precision is a technical feat."

Chicago On Stage- Highly Recommended

"...The Adventures of Spirit Force Five is not a cutting edge, gritty look at society. Instead, it is a Saturday morning cartoon for adults. The show gives its audience 65 minutes of laughter, and it distracts one from the hellscape that is everyday life. Sometimes a break is important. I would recommend taking your break with Spirit Force Five."

Picture This Post- Recommended

"...For this audience member and parody fan, what truly makes or breaks a play like this is commitment to the vibrant characters and melodramatic script, and this cast delivers. Kevin Alves' Coack K is a bumbling but fearless mentor, taking every opportunity he can to accidentally throw his cape back into someone's face. The show is also constantly aware of just how ridiculous it is, which makes it all the more fun."
