News & Interviews for American Hero
Critic Reviews for American Hero
A Dorff sideshow first and foremost, "American Hero" is far too casual with Melvin's character arc, and the appeal of superhuman abilities.
Writer-director Nick Love brings an enticingly quirky sensibility to the kaleidoscopic action, infusing his offbeat tale with raucous charm and a big, sloppy heart.
"American Hero" starts off seeming as if it is going to be a fresh take on superheroes, but Nick Love, who wrote and directed, turns out to have nowhere to go with his intriguing premise.
The filmmakers blend tones like a child mixing fountain drinks into one unidentifiable flavor.
The metaphor of superpowers equalling sober potential is good, but the careless development would barely fill a ten-minute short, making American Hero something of a slog.
Audience Reviews for American Hero
A different take on the superhero genre, one set in the realm of the real and the knowable, and is intriguing for that, loses punch simply because it doesn't know where to go with either the real stuff or the superpower. Short sighted. Dorff and Griffen build a nice chemistry, but again to little use.
