Trivia

Based on the first three books of the Antboy-series by Kenneth Bøgh Andersen. However, the story line of the second book is hardly used. It revolves around a divorce, which Ask Hasselbalch thought was irrelevant to the story in the film. See more »

Excellent Movie...Critics Too Harsh
31 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie more attuned for children but cute/watchable for adults as well.. Critics forget what children like. They compare this to Spiderman because they want to see a Spiderman type of superhero movie that entertains adults. When they don't get that, they decide to tear into the movie saying it's a Spiderman ripoff. Sorry, critics, superhero movies, like they use to make them, can be built for children without implied sexuality, bad language, and soaked in darkness. This movie was beautifully shot and didn't need high tech gadgetry to entertain well. It was funny too (e.g. the kid's oblivious loser parents). It's also original (or at least unusual) in having a child portray a superhero.
