The lead character Michele (Ludovico Girardello), who is now 16, discovers his dark side and his ability to be mean. The encounter between Michele, his biological mother, Yelena (Ksenia Rappoport), and the mysterious Natasha (Galatea Bellugi) will overturn the boy's existence. New characters - the superheroes called the "specials" - are introduced in the second chapter of The Invisible Boy: Cinetica (Katia Mironova), Roccia (Mikolai Chroboczeck), Morfeo (Dario Cantarelli) who team up with Yelena and Natasha to revenge themselves on their common enemy Igor Zavarov (Kristof Konrad), a ruthless Russian tycoon who imprisoned the superheroes to capture the secret of their special powers.
Despite the limited budget an Italian movie can have, the second episode of the Invisible boy saga (as Salvatores call it) is a solid and entertaining follow up of the first one.
The story choices are not obvious and the way the plot itself is developed shows the director and the writers knew what they were doing. Excellent add-on with the twin sister, a powerful and enigmatic character that confirm the "coming of age" theme that we have seen in the first movie. Many reference to other Superheroes movies (X-Men above all : the guys with superpowers call themselves Gli Speciali), but again with a special (Italian?) touch. Great special effects (considering the budget) and great locations. A special mention deserves the music score.
