The 'real-life superhero' genre has become almost as familiar as the superhero genre itself, but Homemade Vigilante is a very original film which clearly has a lot of love for the comic books and films it occasionally spoofs.
The film is the tale of a down-and-out loser who dons a mask to become the startlingly ineffectual 'Wolfman'. What follows is a series of mis- adventures with jokes and characters which stay in the memory. The film is well-shot with stylish visuals and commendable effects portraying Wolverhampton as a shadowy noire city. The film has fun with many superhero clichés and manages to be original.
