Storyline

Dennis Sullivan, an average NYC accountant is assigned to work with a wealthy young widow and her son, Jake - A boy obsessed with the televised superhero 'Man America'. Dennis sees how Jake uses the TV hero to fill the void left by his deceased father. Moved by the boy's loss, Dennis heads for the 'Imagination Superstore' in search of the beloved costume. Once inside the dressing room, Dennis listens as the shop falls prey to a knife-wielding robber. Now in costume, Dennis springs into action to boot the thug from the store with security cameras capturing all. Once the footage hits the airwaves, a media frenzy erupts, leaving an entire city longing for more Man America. Now Dennis must choose between the safety of obscurity or providing his costumed hope to others. Written by Anonymous

Great movie
16 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though some people may not like the humor this movie has and the fact it was low budget it is a very solid, heartwarming movie and it is definitely worth watching. Each of the characters in the movie is well developed and certain ones begin to grow on you throughout the length of the film. The fact that everyone can be somebody's hero is ever present in the movie. The movie hits on important values of being honest, being true to oneself, giving of oneself for others, and making a difference. The movie is really quite family friendly minus a few cuss words and it worth the chance. It also shows you that real heroes are those that do the right thing.
