In bustling downtown Madrid, a loud gunshot and two mysterious deaths trap a motley assortment of common urbanites in a decrepit central bar, while paranoia and suspicion force the terrified regulars to turn on each other.
What would have happened if Superman's ship hadn't landed in Smallville, but in a poor city next to Buenos Aires? Based on the superb comic book by Leo Oyola, Kryptonita tells the story of an unconventional roguish Justice League (a classic Robin Hood metaphor), trying to save Kal-El's life from the police and no other than Doomsday himself. While kept hostage by Juan Raro (J'onn J'onzz), Cuñataí Güirá (Hawkgirl), El Faisán (Green Lantern), El Ráfaga (The Flash), a transvestite named Lady Di (Wonder Woman) and El Federico (Batman), a night shift doctor fights to keep Nafta Súper alive after removing a chunk of kryptonite from his side. Enjoy this fantastic reinterpretation of the Justice League, and keep an eye out for the Joker.Written by
Brilliant alternative version of Justice League, in underground Argentina
The movie is extremely smart, is developed from a brilliant idea, and has numerous references to the famous superheroes from DC spectators need to pay attention not to lose any of them. If those superpowerful guys had not been born in the United States but in a poor area near Buenos Aires, they would be antiheroes from Nafta Super Gang, who rob banks and help the poor (is that less heroic than Justice League? or perhaps more?...), and are enemies of another gang lead by a bald gangster (Lex, off course) and fight corrupt Bonaerense police where bad guys like Crown (amazing Joker portrayed by always brilliant comedian Capusotto) and Turtle Head (Doomsday) work. The superheroes represented are Flash, Wonder Woman (amazing idea and outcome!), Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, Superman, Batman and Martian Manhunter. Not only their clothes, jewelry, tattoos and hairstyle, but also their backgrounds are references to original superheroes in a very entertaining way, some of them combined with unique innovations. Although the film is more realistic than most superhero films, and that they mention more than show their superpowers, these are real and appear when they need them.
