Storyline

After a radioactive meteor strikes Earth, a genetically altered group known as The Rochester 13 gain astonishing, superhuman powers. Ian Sparks doesn't feel remotely super... but after his parents' death, he throws himself into battle against the criminals plaguing the mean streets of New York. Teaming up with, and falling hard for, the beautiful Lady Heavenly, the unstoppable duo quickly decimates the city's army of thugs. But when they tangle with the nation's most twisted arch-villain, they end up losing everything - including each other. Sparks' rage-fueled quest for vengeance ignites a battle that will change the world and alter his destiny, forever. Written by RLJ Entertainment

90 mins of eye-rape!
10 April 2014 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

First of all, please explain to me how someone decides to become a "Super," trains since childhood and somehow completely lacks ANY muscle definition. (Somehow, I doubt a grown man with the body of a 10 yr old can strike "fear" into the hearts of criminals.) The acting was awful, the storyline was scattered (at best) and the direction was non-existent. This movie was so bad, embarrassed for Clancy Brown, since he is an actor I like (but I guess we all need a paycheck). I understand the attempt at "noir," but even that failed miserably. The reviews on this board saying how "great" this movie is are quite obviously fake, as they have clearly never seen this celluloid monstrosity. I'm a little . It was possibly one of the worst films I've ever seen, and that's saying a LOT!
