Great Take on Superhero Life
13 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is such a funny movie. This is the British take on Hancock. I will definitely recommend this movie to others.

The idea of a mild-manner postman becoming a superhero and taking all of his personality flaws with him makes for a great story. Normally we think that with the extra powers confidence will come along with it but that is not the case for Bob. Bob can't even get a date and he is the personal jar opener for a unionized security guard charged to protect Bob's life.

The "girl-friend" is stereotypical "Colombian" but she balances the "loser" persona of Bob.

Cute and funny a must see movie for the flip side of Marvel and DC characters.
