Amazing to say the least
9 November 2015 | by sollymcaSee all my reviews

I was totally compelled to watch as soon as it appeared on my screen. By the end of this trailer I was in tears. Kudos to the director for daring to be different. I can't wait to see the Feature version of this. I actually ordered the comic book version which is pretty good. The only reason I gave this a 9 is because all of us are anxiously waiting to see more of this. I do feel this superhero story should be told worldwide so that people of all cultures can experience a different tweak on the superhero trope. The mother Nicole was such a great narrator and the kid was so freaking cute. I'm pretty sure they already have something in the making whether its a television show or feature. I recommend this 100%.
