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

Not terrible but not really good either ....
13 April 2014 | by tmf084See all my reviews

Similar to Sin City or Watchmen it tries to utilize a film noir approach to tell the story and you can easily recognize that it could have been a great movie. Unfortunately the directors had no idea how they were going to do it. And thru the first 3/4s of the movie I could never shake the feeling that it was somewhat incoherent. It felt like scenes were filmed in a different context and spliced together randomly in the editing room, which also made the performances of the leads appear wooden and uninspired. Only the last 20 mins were not too bad and felt like they were intended to be this way. However they don't save the rest of it at least not for me. But if you can see past its flaws and you aren't bothered by them too much it's worth watching.
