...a cinematic indie comic that critiques the tropes of its bigger-budget antecedents.

It's to be admired for its ballsy nature in making a movie that is every geek's fantasy. However, it's really nothing more than a martial arts flick with a guy in spandex.

He had no superpowers, just his fists and guts.

Mirageman is Ernesto Díaz Espinoza's sophomore film, in which he writes and directs. Considering the fact that his debut film, Kiltro, and this one star Marko Zaror, it is only fitting that they are about equal.This film plays out like a superhero film. Not the typical CG Hollywood films like The Incredible Hulk or Ironman. This is like a normal guy putting on a cheap costume and fighting crime by kicking butt. When I say kicking butt, I mean kicking butt martial arts style. He doesn't use guns. There really isn't much to the story and it is a little slow at times, but it is quite funny. You actually get to see the lead character of Maco start from scratch by creating a costume as well as make a name for himself.Unlike Kiltro, where the action is all at the end, the action is spread out through the entire 90 minute picture. If you know who Marko Zaror is, then you don't need to ask if the martial arts is good. It is. The only problem, once again, is that the film leaves you wanting more. I don't know if they plan it that way, so you go see his next movie, but if they do, it is pretty clever.Marko has proven to me that he has the ability to act. He falls a little flat in here and it is the story and his character that can take the blame for it. María Elena Swett is the second major character and she is dazzling. Seriously, you can't stop looking at her when she is on the screen.Mirageman will seem like a low budget movie, but that doesn't mean it sucks. This is an entertaining watch if you like martial arts action.

More than any comic book movie, "Mirageman" truly gets at the heart of superhero mythology. Certainly not flawless (the last third is rather weak, considering what went on before, and chooses to go dark for some reason) but just as certainly pure fucking awesomeness.
