Critic Reviews for Superheroes
No excerpt available.
Think of "Superheroes" as a real-life "Kick-Ass," with more community outreach and far less acute injury.
Humorous and well-rounded. More about the problems of the world ... that lead to the necessity for these [superheroes] to pop up in cities across the nation.
Biased but fun, Mike Barnett's sympathy towards his subjects lends itself to a goofy, funny and terribly uplifting call to arms.
Audience Reviews for Superheroes
Very funny and also touching; Barnett does a good job portraying his subjects in an unbiased light, and they come across as very weird people with some questionable methods, but also sincere, likeable people who clearly have a passion for what they're doing.
It's quite an interesting documentary about people who dress up as superheroes to "protect the innocents". I think despite their attempts at trying to be cool and do something for the society, they should really take care of themselves first. Don't let larping goes out of control! I liked the editing of the film, the use of narration and comic sans were quite well done. It's both entertaining and insightful, highly recommended to be watched for a good laugh.
At times I disliked both the police' and superhero's perspectives. However, it was pretty interesting to see people who live like superheros.
