It's a film that asks potent questions about important topics, but will first and foremost charm viewers with its oddball humour and romanticism. Griff the Invisible is a treat.

Mopey-but-sweet Australian entry in the Kick-Ass homemade superhero sweepstakes.

There are moments of pure magic when we actually feel ourselves letting go of the limitations of the real world and find ourselves -- if only for a fleeting moment -- believing in Griff's world.

Something clicks here. Physically as well as verbally, these kids are speaking their own language.

Whether you buy the things these people do probably depends on your tolerance for adorable psychotic breaks.

There's critical wit behind the appealingly eccentric romance on display in "Griff the Invisible" as it comically dismantles our superhero-worshiping culture.

Though hardly ground-breaking, this whimsical Australian entry is just endearing enough to stand out from the pack.

Though the movie sounds perilously twee, "Griff the Invisible" works as a slice of emotional life for the most part because of its lead performances.

What at first seemed to be a superhero film is actually a melancholy portrait of the maladjusted.

Even if the material doesn't always soar, it's consistently good-natured

A likeable (if uneven) little comedy...

With lots of charm and humor, Griff the Invisible is a quirky and sophisticated romance in disguise.

Evokes many moments of magical weirdness, as Griff morphs into a person of interest, guilty of stalking, prowling, voyeurism, or all of the above. Which when you think about it, sums up the generic dark side of all superheroes, in movies big or small.

Original and idiosyncratic, it's a quirky glimpse of imaginative innocence.

Thin on plot, it recycles fascinating character scenarios multiple times, hoping the chemistry of the actors will carry the day.

Superhero films have been messed with before, but this Australian twist on DIY crusading becomes a lingering conundrum about unusual assistance.

Leon Ford, its creator, has made that rare film: one which treads a fine line between fantasy and painful reality without stumbling.
