An interesting take on the idea of being a Superhero.
15 February 2009 | by thenostromo-1See all my reviews

I just watched this film and going in I had no idea what to expect. It's a story of real-life people, and then mixes in moving still-shots of animation to provide a comic-book feel to certain scenes which I found to be very effective. There is a vigilante that is fighting a drug ring, and then there is a story of a young man and his wife expecting a baby. The two stories intertwine as the young man starts to believe that he cannot be hurt, and at one point refers to himself as a Superhero - hence the name of the film. The film clearly had a low-budget, and some of the change of scenes are clumsy, but it didn't take anything away from me being engaged in the story and looking forward to how it was going to turn out. The music by Matthew Gidlow was quite good in my humble opinion. I liked this movie and would actually not hesitate to see it again with friends.
