Not Your Typical Short Film
22 July 2004 | by (LA, CA) – See all my reviews

In short - no pun intended - it's about this kid who fantasizes that he could be a superhero, but is he? We are taken along a narrative/live-action journey through the eyes of a kid who wonders if he has the "gift" of being a superhero. There are visual flashback sequences of a dark fedora-wearing black leather trench coat figure manhandling various bad guys, meanwhile this kid senses these images in his mind and body, but wonders if it's real or fantasy. The truth is revealed at the end!

I'm usually not a fan of short films, but after viewing this one - it really got my attention! It's a Batman-The Shadow mixture: it looks incredibly well-polished and it's definitely not your typical short film - a must see. Time and effort was well spent. The costume of The Dark Agent is pretty cool looking. The musical score takes you along and really adds an element of suspense and action -- well done. This film has the potential to upgrade into an interesting feature.

Bad guys beware!
