SUPER EXPERT FILM!
22 October 2020 | by kupcrSee all my reviews

I really liked this Danish Superhero movie ANTBOY, a quirky yet engaging movie that both celebrates and has fun with the conventions of the superhero story as chronicled in both movies and comic books. The overdubbing of this film in English was expertly done. Danish actor, 12 year old Oscar Dietz, plays a character named Pelle Nohrman who gets bitten by an ant and he's a lot like Spiderman. I really felt the tension between Pelle and the flea, who might I say, is the perfect villain. This movie is great for people of all ages and anyone can get a kick out of Pelle when he pees acid for the first time. Danish actress Amalie Kruse Jensen plays Isa!
