" There's a Hero in All of Us.. "
14 September 2018 | by adonis98-743-186503See all my reviews

A struggling father tells his son a bedtime story to convey an important life lesson. I really wasn't expecting Sidekick to be so good but this short film really hit the right buttons in my humble opinion. Especially the effects and acting in general were quite great considering it's just a short film of 15 minutes. Plus it was suprising to see Tom Cavanagh and Emily Bett Rickards together outside the Arrowverse and the message really becomes clear by the end of the movie and it's so sweet and right. Definitely something you should see immediately now. (A+)
