I Expected More In the Introduction of Heroes
19 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

In Manhattan, Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia) is the younger brother of the candidate to the congress Nathan Petrelli (Adrian Pasdar), and he dreams and believes that he can fly. He decides to prove his theory and jumps from the roof of a building in an alley and his brother flies and saves him. In Texas, the cheerleader Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere) is indestructible and can not harm herself or die. She saves a fireman in a fire in a train. In Tokyo, Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) believes he can control time and space continuum. In India, Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) moves to the Brooklyn, New York, when his father that was researching a secret project called Genesis about genome and DNA is killed in his cab. In Lower Manhattan, the painter Isaac Mendez (Santiago Cabrera) paints pictures of the future. In Las Vegas, the striper Niki Sanders (Ali Larter) borrows US$ 30.000,00 from a powerful local mobster and does not have the money to pay her loan. She sees a different image of her in the mirror, and when two gangsters come to her house to collect the money, one of them hits her and she faints.

The Introduction of the characters of "Heroes" is a reasonable episode, with six disconnected stories. I believe the lives of the characters will entwine in the next episodes, but I had a great expectation based on the comments of friends and I was a little disappointed. The story of the gorgeous and sexy Nikki is the more intriguing in this moment. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Genesis"
