Storyline

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. Then one fateful day Norman discovers that a fellow co-worker, Victor Ventura, a swaggering, pretty-boy salesman, has slight telekinetic abilities beyond his understanding. After discussing his mind-blowing discovery with his only friend Chuck, a know-it-all comic book store owner, Norman comes to the outlandish conclusion that he should train Victor to become a real-life superhero by helping him refine and expand his extraordinary ability.

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 ...

Best use of $35,000
2 October 2006 | by leo_bartelsSee all my reviews

I saw this the other night at the okanagan fall film fest and it ruled. This is the kinda movie that $200,000,000 would not necessarily make better. The script was awesome very smart very funny and very witty. The acting was all spot on, not one weak character. The directing, cinematography and special effect were all perfect. (just so you know I do not know anyone involved so this IS not a biest review). The beauty of Canadian films is due to lack of budget they have to be exceptional films in order to get picked up and maple has picked this one up so you should see it in your local independent video store come mid November, and I strongly recommend it. All I have to say about this film is that it was well worth the $8 movie ticket and I will stock several copy's in my store.
