A dark, superhero action, short film pilot.
21 January 2014 | by (Yorktown, VA) – See all my reviews

Occasionally, a great nugget of Sci-Fi and Comic Book Hero goodness falls onto our plate. 'Liberator' the movie, has the potential to be a tasty morsel that we can sink our teeth into! 'Liberator' is a dark, superhero action, short film pilot that was shot in Los Angeles, CA

Al Migliocetti, the Liberator, becomes public enemy number one after having to take the wrap for a botched US black ops job. He winds up being sent to Federal prison despite all the good he's done for his country. Once considered an American icon, his status is quickly obliterated, and after he gets out of prison has to face today's times with everyone in America hating him – including his own family who turned on him as well.

Out of desperation to clear his name and win the love of his daughter back, he does what many disgruntled Americans with a story to tell do – write a tell all book. Just when he starts putting back the pieces of his life, an evil enemy resurfaces forcing him to don the uniform and once again become the Liberator.
