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

Heart warming movie!!
11 October 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I found it refreshing to have a great little gem like Somebody's Hero to make it to the mainstream, from time to time.

Nowadays, it's always stories that need to be realistic, dark, gritty... What about a story that can be just that. Heartwarming. Nothing more, nothing less.

Somebody's Hero is a movie that keep a funny little smile in your face all along the way. A Christmas morning kind of feeling, when you were ten and jumping in the bed of your parent to let them know that Santa passed by, during the night.

A great movie to watch with all the family. A couple of logs in the fireplace, everybody under a sheet, on the couch, a snack on the lap. You'll probably found Fido, also watching to find how it end.

Nothing else to say but; what are you waiting for?
