Number of Times Seen – 2 (18 Aug 2010 and 18 May 2015)
Brief Synopsis – In order to try and stop crime in his city, a teenager decides to become a crime fighting superhero which changes his life
My Take on it – Most of us comic book fans ponder the questions about how would life and our world be different if superheroes really existed.
This movie takes that concept and gives us a semi plausible scenario where a kid takes to the streets to stop crime and corruption in his home town.
Most of the movie is done in a very cynical over the top fashion which add to the funness of the movie.
The best part about this movie is the fact that it’s an original idea which is a bit of a breath of fresh air in the world of constant comic book superhero movies being produced.
Bottom Line -Great concept of how a superhero can evolve in the real world. Many scenes are over the top but that’s a big part of the fun. Great original superhero story after years of being bombarded by the same comic book heroes. Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – After being rejected by every studio they approached, Matthew Vaughn raised the budget at a dinner party and made the movie independently. Vaughn ultimately sold the movie to Universal for more than he had originally asked them for. (From IMDB)
Rating – Globe Worthy
