Storyline

Thunder Racers, Infinite Finity, Rat Warriors. Junk Comics' titles have been referred to as 'the worst printed material since Mein Kampf'. Tony Leary, the nice-guy owner of Junk Comics, is gearing up for one last roll of the dice. His new superhero title, The Sodomizer, launches at the British International Comic Show, and nothing will stop Tony from making it a success. Nothing except a gang of Geordie criminals who are using a comic company to launder their dirty money. Tony is drafted by the police to identify the culprits and bring them to justice. Aided by his trusty geek sidekicks, Rick and Keith, Tony must defy the odds if he is to become a real life hero. Written by Pulp

A great British indie gem
7 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

If you're after a movie that is deeper with a more plausible plot line than the average Kevin Smith film, then Pulp probably isn't for you.

If, however, you want some good British banter, geek-based humour, and a rather ridiculous premise for a storyline, then I'd highly recommend this little indie gem.

The story follows Tony, a struggling comic book writer, and his two best friends Rick and Keith, as they launch The Sodomizer, their last attempt at succeeding in the comic book industry, at the British International Comic Show, whilst working undercover to find a money laundering gang (see, ridiculous storyline). The thing is, the plot quickly becomes secondary to the characters, some less lovable (Tyler) than others, their relationships, and the genuinely laugh out loud moments.

Apart from the slight over-use of the f-word (although I'm probably a little older than the target audience), there really isn't much not to like about this rather silly, eccentric, geek- tastic film. Beats watching episodes 1-3 of Star Wars at any rate.
