Storyline

After a radioactive meteor strikes Earth, a genetically altered group known as The Rochester 13 gain astonishing, superhuman powers. Ian Sparks doesn't feel remotely super... but after his parents' death, he throws himself into battle against the criminals plaguing the mean streets of New York. Teaming up with, and falling hard for, the beautiful Lady Heavenly, the unstoppable duo quickly decimates the city's army of thugs. But when they tangle with the nation's most twisted arch-villain, they end up losing everything - including each other. Sparks' rage-fueled quest for vengeance ignites a battle that will change the world and alter his destiny, forever. Written by RLJ Entertainment

Surprisingly good
29 April 2014 | by harahaukSee all my reviews

This is just my two cents and not an attempt at writing a pro review. I was ready for this movie to be a piece of crap, so I got pleasantly surprised. I think the plot was great and the costumes was corny as hell - which threw me off a bit in the beginning (that and the lead up to the main storyline which was confusing as to where we we're going). But it soon became apparent to be that i had stumbled into a old school noir movie which isn't about polished superheroes, but "normal" people trying to make a difference. It still has the usual good vs evil with a hint of romance in it, with a red line that keeps you interested throughout the film. People who say this is the worst crap they have seen must be watching only the best there is. Overall a decent flick.
