Although the previous review mentions good acting the story is severely criticised; however to me (with over 30 years of comic book reading experience) the story is superb and well written with a cynicism sadly missing from most po faced costumed escapades. For the last 10 years this has been one of my favourite Comic book adaptations- Danger Diabolik & Batman Begins being two notable others.
The fact that the direction is less than average; the set designs garishly multicoloured and the acting (in general) rather wooden, spoil this brave attempt at 'post modern' super heroics. The direction is in the music video mould of handcam wobbliness giving the whole film a sea-sick sensation, spoiling an otherwise interesting and fun (in an O.T.T. megalomaniac comic book style) adventure yarn. Whatever its failings it was still 100x better than the time waster MUTANT X.
