Movie Info

Two debt-ridden comic shop owners discover a rare superhero comic that could be the solution to all of their financial woes in this independent comedy. Deadhead Comics is in dire financial straits; unless owners Jazz and Wolf can pay their landlord 5,000 quick, the shop will close its doors for good. Things start to look up for the desperate duo, however, when the debut issue of "Electric Man" mysteriously appears on their crowded shelves. With a going price of 100,000 it might just be their key to financial freedom. But when word of the prized comic gets out, every thug and comic geek in the city begins scheming to get their hands on it. Meanwhile, when Wolf's girlfriend enters the picture, the situation really starts to get out of hand. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Electric Man

All Critics (9)

If you're prepared to overlook its financial shortcomings, then you'll enjoy what is an entertaining and knowing little yarn.

October 21, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Here is a film with humour and energy and heart, made by people whose primary objective appears to have been to make a movie they themselves would like to see.

October 21, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The film's main problem is that it's a good 25 minute short padded out to an hour and a half.

January 22, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Utterly dismal, can't-quite-believe-it's-really-this-bad Scottish comedy that's inept on every conceivable level.

January 22, 2013 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It's difficult to imagine that this will be of much interest to anyone, apart from the people who made it.

December 2, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Feels more like mates mucking around with a camera than a proper movie.
