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

A Movie for the Hopeful and Romantic Types
8 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

And when I say Romantic, I don't mean love, but there is a touching love story as well. This is a movie for the types who need heroes in a day and age where heroes are more complicated rather than confused. Our main hero in this story struggles with the concept of being a hero for all when all he wanted to do was be a hero for one. Chris Gorham is fantastic as usual in the lead of not Somebody's Hero, but really Everybody's Hero. There have been some negative reviews here and all they do is attack the hopeful image the film projects, something sadly lacking in many films today. This is a family film of the highest order and worth a look by those who are jaded by the cynicism of the world today.
