A really neat low budget film taking on the superhero genre
11 December 2020 | by MoistMoviesSee all my reviews

The film was really carried by the lead Joe Manganiello. You could tell this was done on a super thin budget and every cent was well spent. It looked cinematic, the use of animation instead of any CGI except for the very end worked perfectly, the flight scenes were not badly done for the clearly short budget. I wish they went a little more violent with it, to make it more gritty. But it still worked as is.

My only complaint was the ending could've used more fleshing out and i would've written it differently, but it didnt ruin the rest of my enjoyment of the film. The writing was solid mostly. Joe really endears you to the character, all the side cast was just mediocre or not great but they were bi-products of the leads journey. We've got Glen playing Dennis but as a drug dealer and he does fine. The only other recognizable face in the film. I'd have loved to see a higher budget version done of this. It could have fleshed out the story of chromium more and shown it possibly well rendered in CGI. The writing could've been tighter in some places but over all a solid 7.5 for what it is.
