Highly Recommended!, 15 March 2011
Author: sanjay9000

Engaging, sensitive movie with a real sense of humor. Does not take its premise too seriously which ultimately adds poignancy to the emotional heart of the film. The superhero sequences are slightly campy but intentionally so and the father-son type chemistry between the hero and the boy is excellent. Production value is surprisingly good for a non-studio picture and the acting is topnotch, especially from the main character. Soundtrack is appropriate, if unexciting, and non-intrusive. Highly recommended for family viewing but also for a fun night with your friends. Just the right amount of adventure and emotion for adults and children!
