Sidekick improves through every one of its later scenes, building and building to something wildly original.

After seeing it, I wonder why someone didn't think of this particular idea before.

Internet Reviews

In a perfect antidote to this summer's pretentious, superhero extravaganzas, Sidekick is a sweet, indie spoof of the genre. ... It's consistently cute.

A terrifically funny movie about a computer/comics nerd who learns of his co-worker's telekinetic powers and decides to train him.

Combustible Celluloid

A twisted superhero story that has reportedly been purchased for a big-budget Hollywood remake, though this indie version is certainly good enough for multiplexes.

Cinema em Cena

Mesmo com a produção tecnicamente pobre (explicável pelo baixíssimo orçamento) e prejudicado pela direção amadora e pelo elenco irregular, o roteiro de Sparaga dá origem a um filme com charme e inteligência, embora pudesse ser melhorado.

| Original Score: 3/5

just as captivating as anything that opens with the Marvel comic's scrawl. This thing has real characters, real emotion, and mostly, real laughs.

Has more to say about being a hero than most big movie productions, although having even a tiny bit of one of those blockbuster's budgets would have helped.

You can easily tell that the budget was threadbare. In fact, the catering for the crew probably consisted of tap water and peanut-and-jelly sandwiches.

Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews

Sidekick isn't a comedy so much as it is a twist on the genre. It's a solid little film, and I'll be curious to see what these filmmakers do next.

...a lot of fun to watch, and I hope to see those involved continue to grow.

...a far more accomplished and flat-out entertaining piece of work than some of its similarly-themed Hollywood brethren.

Even though I have read a comic or two in my life, it's not just for us nerds....It's a universal story. Honest.
