Mild-mannered computer consultant Norman Neale has two great loves in this cruel world: Comic books and his office's effervescent main receptionist, Andrea Hicks. Norman spends his days dreaming of Andrea from the isolation of his cubicle and his nights dreaming of fighting crime from the solitude of his apartment.

Did You Know?


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 ...

Plagiarism is the word not HERO
13 February 2013 | by arul_programmerSee all my reviews

The main story had been stolen from Robert Townsend's The Meteor Man and ended with a reverse Scrooge tactic, where Rowan Atkinson has already done it in his spoofs - Black Adder.

Too shame a Canadian studio would do such a degradable act as a movie that had complete been plagiarized to just make money out of it.

The acting is worse than the directing. You don't have to show all your colours just to make a point where the receptionist does it over and over again in her overacting: face expression is important but exaggerating is really annoying and disgusting especially near the subway station. As per directing a movie is concerned fella just keep your day job - period. If you had quit it to do this then some mental hospice might do wonders buddy.
