A journey inside the world of real life caped crusaders. From all over America, these self-proclaimed crime fighters, don masks, homemade costumes and elaborate utility belts in an attempt to bring justice to evildoers everywhere.
The film originally had several more flashbacks that showed the characters out of their superhero outfits, but the writer/director felt they took you out of the world too much. The idea was to make the audience feel like a fish out of water, just like the heroes. See more »

proof that big budgets and big stars don't make a movie.
I love the dark feel of the film that was not like your typical "super hero" movie. It seems that some of the critics of this film didn't understand it. Anyone who was a fan of "watchmen" would enjoy and understand this picture.
These characters were not over the top and exaggerated, they were portrayed as real/average people that happen to have super hero problems. This isn't a story that is tied up in a nice little bow at the end, where most Hollywood movies do. This is an edgy story that mirrors the unfortunate reality of actual life. The acting was solid, the directing was clean, and the writing was creative.
Maybe I am guilty of understanding what it really takes to make a film happen, and understand the constraints of time, schedules, and how filmmakers have to often make hard decisions on the fly to make something as big as a film happen.
I still say good job, and I look forward to more.
