Very simply, a Superhero SHORT with great potential for a TV series
2 August 2017 | by garyoperatorSee all my reviews

The best part about this movie is that it co-stars personal friends Don the Dragon and Tara Cardinal, two awesome superstars in their own rights. The short definitely shows enough interest that there should be a TV series to come out of this. It would be awesome and it is definitely time for another hero to be revived. The bad part about this short is that Lou Ferrigno is the star in it. It is hard to enjoy a film when someone you looked up to turns out to be a jerk to his fans. I tried to meet him in person at work out day at the Santa Monica Pier and say hello and get him to autograph the DVD and take a picture with him but he kept avoiding me only to stop when a beautiful woman wanted to say hello and get a hug and picture with him. After waiting in line at LA Comikaze to get his autograph and picture and seeing his prices I had to turn and walk away without even meeting him. He probably wanted money for a guy to meet him for that too. I threw my Hulk DVD's in the trash when I got home from that event. The short is original, kept it interesting, and was quite cleverly written. It left you wanting more, which is what a short is supposed to do. Would love to see it in a TV series, as I already said, but for personal reasons, have it end with the super hero losing. Having gone from hero to zero, Lou tries to once again become the hero he once was and America's favorite guy again, but can he do it? Lets hope the TV series shows up so we can find out.
