Quite funny but too slight
21 June 2010 | by Red-BarracudaSee all my reviews

This ultra low-budget documentary follows music producer Steve Sale try to become a real-life superhero. He creates a character, designs a costume and writes a theme tune. He meets other 'superheroes'. He becomes a local celebrity. He even catches a shop-lifter.

This documentary is fun up to a point. While the overall idea for the project is quite amusing, with some funny moments, there just isn't enough interesting material garnered along the way to keep things ticking along in a wholly satisfying manner. Steve Sale is a nice guy and I was very much on his side but I was often hoping something really memorable would happen. But sadly, too much of the time it was simply Steve just mucking around with very little overall purpose. There does seem to be a potentially interesting story in here though, but it's not Steve, it's the other somewhat strange men who are professional superheroes. Most notably Master Legend, a Florida based superhero who cleans the streets of drug dealers, child molesters and rapists – a good thing but it is left a little unclear how he actually achieves this admirable goal. Perhaps a documentary about characters such as this would have been more interesting.

This is a silly but not unenjoyable documentary. It's just too slight and meandering for its own good though. Nothing much, in truth, actually happens and that is ultimately a bit of a problem. Good for a few chuckles at the very least though.
