You will feel like curling up into an embarrassed little ball at the beginning, but you will be cheering the heroes of the film on by the end and looking at your own life wondering if maybe you're doing all you can for your fellow man.
As a documentary you might be more expecting the shaky cam of such films as Cloverfield and Chronicle but as it's not fiction it's direction is actually steady and accomplished and exceptionally processional.
The subject matter is handled with honesty and dignity, and it's a fine line with some of the characters that never gets crossed into demeaning the real life superheroes. At first they do seem a little sad and pathetic, but this is never the emphasis of the direction. The genuine selflessness of the people in the film is ALWAYS evident and their desire to help is not just heart warming but strangely compelling, again this is never the emphasis of the direction but that's a testimony Mike Barnett who maintains a professional stance throughout.
It's a good, solidly made documentary and the perfect antidote to all the horror on TV these days.
Now where's my cape?
