Surprisingly Clever Film
22 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At a time when superheroes have lost government funding and public support, a superhero meets a girl who can help him overcome his own emotional crisis.

I absolutely love the concept of a woman cheating on her boyfriend with a superhero, who is her boyfriend in a cheap mask. Is it really cheating? And how do superheroes get away with that -- not being recognized behind such a small piece of fabric? While there is not much plot to this one, there are plenty of gags to make it worthwhile. Even just the various brief television segments that have taken popular culture and combined it with superheroes... very, very witty and clever.

Despite being distributed by Smodcast, Kevin Smith seems to have had no direct involvement in the picture. This may be for the best. Yet, it definitely has the sensibility that I think old school Smith fans will appreciate.
