I'm not a film snob, this film is just really really bad.
7 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, I read the existing review of this movie, (Batman meets Daredevil,) and thought what the hell, I'll give it a try and ignore the score.

That was a BIG mistake as this film is truly terrible. Bad direction, camera work, lighting, sound, acting and script. Sometimes you really have to wonder how these things get made when there are so many talented people trying to make it in the industry. Mentioning either Batman or Daredevil in the same sentence as this movie is an insult to them both and I have to question whether the reviewer was involved with the movie in some way. (Apologies if you're not and just have really bad taste in films.)

Don't get me wrong, I love a low budget movie as much as the next guy, but it has to be good and this definitely is not. With so many other movies out there I'd give this a wide berth. Try watching Defendor or Super instead, two really great low budget movies with an interesting take on the whole superhero genre.
