Completely original take on the superhero genre.
4 August 2015 | by Tom RizzutoSee all my reviews

Any fan of the superhero genre should see this movie. In a world were major studios are spending millions to choke you into submission with special effects and overdone reboots, this film proves that you can tell an original story about superheroes and still make it about the characters first.

I saw this movie at a festival in New York. I actually went to see another film but decided to stay because of the interesting title. I was immediately drawn in by the combination of animation and live action. By choosing to animate the majority of the action scenes, this film avoids taking itself too seriously, and lets the audience focus more on the relationships between the characters.

While the technical aspects of the filmmaking are impressive, the performances of the actors cannot be ignored. The whole cast is extremely likable and the chemistry between the two male leads is great. You really believe that these two guys grew up fighting crime together.

Overall, this movie succeeds in telling a story that is as original as it is heartfelt.
