Storyline

A young Brooklyn boy witnesses the brutal murder of his mother and grows up obsessed with finding her killer. Thus begins his life as a quiet, straight-A student by day and a self-appointed hero at night. But what is a real hero? And who decides what is right or wrong? As the boundaries blur, Sean's dual life wears on his psyche and his two worlds careen dangerously close to colliding. Like a graphic novel you can't put down, Boy Wonder challenges morality, distorting perceptions of what is right and what is justified, as it races to its shocking conclusion. Written by Michael Morissey

Quotes

[first lines]
Young Sean: Who wrote that one?
Mary Donovan: Bach. Johann Sebastian Bach.
Young Sean: I think that's the best.
Mary Donovan: Well, I don't know if there's a best. Music is subjective, it's different for every one. When I hear Mozart, I feel... out of breath, dizzy, overwhelmed. When I hear Bach, it's more like a good movie. What about you, what do you feel when you hear Bach?

This movie deserves attention. Very impressed.
20 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

This movie plays like the best dark graphic novel and surprises the viewer in all of the best ways. This is the story of a young boy learning to live a life born from tragedy. The acting was very good especially the lead. He brought a nervous intensity that makes you constantly guess what his next move will be. The fight scenes were positioned for intensity more than flash. This was fitting, and helped in adding to the realistic focus that the setting and story pursue. I deeply enjoyed this movie and I am glad to help bump it's score.

It concerns me when movies of this caliber get overlooked while other nonsense is praised by the majority of movie goers.
