Quotes

Victor Ventura: You know, I used to read comics as a kid. I did, but...I grew out of it. The heroes were just so...lame. Like they would catch these archvillains and then they just throw them to jail knowing full well a week later they'd just bust out and kill more innocent people. Why didn't they just kill them? Makes sense to me.
Norman Neale: Because...true superheroes believe in humanity. They believe that we all have the ability to grow and rehabilitate ourselves. They only use whatever force is necessary to stop ...

Think low-budget "Unbreakable"
17 January 2007 | by joe1991-1See all my reviews

Watchable but nothing special. It reminded me of a sci-fi channel TV movie. Woulda made a mediocre Twighlight Zone or X-files episode.

I rate it a 3 because if you spent any money watching it, you might very well feel ripped off.

Some people might rate it higher because it's an indie, but I'm an average movie watcher, not a film-school teacher. I rate all movies by one standard.

It had a low-budget feel from the start. Camera and sound work were fine, The few small special effects were OK, so I guess it was the acting and directing that made it feel cheap. All the extras looked like acting students who like to stretch their lines out to get more face-time on camera.

The Baldwin brother looked like De Niro compared to the other actors, and no that's not a compliment. If you thought the movie "Unbreakable" was the bestest movie ever, then you might like this variation of the same theme.
