I always wondered why nobody did it before me. I mean, all those comic books, movies, TV shows. You think that one eccentric loner would've made himself a costume. I mean, is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices so thrilling that I'm the only one who fantasized about this? Come on, be honest with yourself. At some point in our lives we all wanna be a superhero.
That's not me,by the way. That's some Armenia guy with a history of mental health problems.

A good fun film this one, but don't think this is some kids film (definitely not suitable for youngsters).
Our erstwhile young 'hero' wishes to escape his otherwise dull life and become a 'somebody' and be a hero. So dresses up to be a masked avenger like his comic book heroes. Problem is that he's a dweeb and troubles next to no-one. Along the way, he becomes a web sensation, gets caught up with a real hardcore vigilante father/daughter act and some big money villains.
The film magnifies everything. The violence is very violent, the jokes are very funny, and the language can be very coarse. Some of this will upset a few but it's not trying to ape any family friendly fare, but be very left-field.
The actors are near perfect for their roles, with a young 11-year-old girl stealing the film from all others with an incredible performance as being more kick-ass than anyone else there.
The soundtrack is brilliant, and you'll love the ride.
You have to give this a go. One of the most original and entertaining graphic novel conversions to the screen yet made. Recommended.
