Overrated, decent but still overrated
30 March 2009 | by AClockworkOrangeBoxSee all my reviews

I wanted to know why this had such high praise and after watching it online just now I am still wondering that. Some of the positive include a unique subject matter, sort of interesting profiles, and a good budget that showed with the quality of production.

I still couldn't help but feel like this might have been better served as a short film, as opposed to it's feature length.

The lives our "superheroes" live are sad, and while some aspects are interesting I didn't find them endearing or terribly entertaining. They were also not particularly inspiring, like the director might have intended them to be. I found myself looking at the clock waiting for it to end.

While I appreciate the effort I think this runs flat and would have enjoyed a more complex theme attached to the story.

If you enjoy documentaries and want something different keep looking. Between Amazon, Snagfilms, Hulu.com, and Netflix you will be able to find much better documentaries that profile the stranger side of life. Would have been much better served as a short film.
