Charming, wish it'd be continued!
12 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw Bad Hero at the festival, I found the artistic as well as the technical realization - and the rest of it - completely matched the story: Though the filmmakers mentioned that it was filmed with a Canon 5D because the Red One broke down and there was even no budget to rent a substitute, Bad Hero successfully sends out the message of moral courage, to stand up for one's beliefs and to help people in danger - showing that even someone's shady background is no excuse not to help...The actors and directors work and the simple cinematography vividly and efficiently make the key points of the story alive. It seemed originally been planned as a feature and it's a shame that it had to be cut down to a short for budget/technical reasons.
