A broad comedy (yes, it has to be, it's not a tragedy) on the aging Superhero's retirement
OK, everybody, if you're young and serious about Superhero movies, then this is like Monty Python... it simply cannot be taken seriously.
If you're a hipster older person, with a somewhat crude or random sense of humor, then this is a fun flick and well worth the rent.
Failing "SUPERPOWERS" is what we all face after a certain age, which might be now... say, 70. Hell, I worked to the age of 67. Lucky for me, I still had a job. Now, imagine if you ARE/WERE a SUPERHERO.
The director Steve Barron directed the films Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Coneheads and The Adventures of Pinocchio, This movie is along those lines, which broadly might be "fish out of water" genre films. Kinda.
The script is funny, perserse and crude, and hey, again, it's not going to be as actually involving as say, Cocoon (1985)... isn't meant to be. I also felt the special effects were actually quite well done (funny for the scenes and "believable" for the characters).
This might not be as big a big budget film (on what?), but shows skills and real fun in giving us "of a certain age, with a kid's sense of humor" a ckeeky carnival of life ride, in a nursing home with Irish exteriors.
Sorry if I just re-wrote ops-52535, but I want to add the "stars" in the film did a good job with the broad material, and I must be a rake, but I thought both Fiona Glascott and Fionnula Flanagan were hotties.
