Storyline

The Rendel movie is a story of a man blinded by his desire for revenge and hatred. Even though Rendel can be considered as a super hero, he is somewhat darker than the traditional representatives of the genre. The movie takes place in the fictionalized version of a Finnish city, Mikkeli.

Are you Finnish(ed) ?
14 April 2018 | by infamous_racoonSee all my reviews

First Finnish super hero, Rendel, between all superheros seen in different countries, genres and universes has one, unique characteristic.... is Finnish! Approaching this film my main thought was to find something new, unusual, something I couldn't find in all blockbusters as well as smaller but still 'American-made' films about caped vigilantes with good intentions. Did I find it? Nope. Pretty much everything that Rendel brings to the screen, has been seen before: Batman's eyes and darkness, Punisher's motivation and merciless, another villainy corporation with money and business as motivation to kill numbers of innocent people etc. Sorry, we have seen it already bazillion times... Fight choreography taken straight from wrestling areas, stereotypical characters and weapons, quick action cuts, to create impression of dynamics, and don't show you that fists and kicks are landing always 3 inches away from opponents face. Really, should I be impressed? Every country, every culture, every nation, every majority and minority deserve its superhero. If only each country in Europe has its own superhero, chance of getting something new in this genre would significantly increase. Finland already has Rendel. Now it's time for the others! Iceland! San Marino! Please bring us something we haven't seen, it's still possible! Impossible is nothing for superheroes!
