Movie Info

This movie is a collection of real-life stories, witnessed firsthand, by the suffering artists that would go on to put this project together. As you may have heard, life in L.A. can be brutally difficult, especially if you are insistent on not "selling out"; and if you are an immigrant, things can get really complicated... Follow Helena as she struggles to get by as an aging actress/model and immigrant, in a tough-as-nails business. When she is forced to operate outside the law to obtain her green card, will she be able to keep her head in the face of impending doom? Will her lone friend, the misfit pizza guy/musician Auto, be able to deflect the bullets and save the day? Check out what it means to be an L.A. Superhero! (c) Official Site

At times endearing, humorous and insightful.

Top Critic

One moment in the film L.A. Superheroes pierces through the hoary concept, cliché-addled script, and weak ensemble acting.

Top Critic

Spotty acting, flashes of crass dialogue, some questionable camera work and awkward storytelling ...

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

Amateurishly staged and unevenly acted, this microbudget indie serves as ample evidence that, absent a unifying aesthetic and artistic hand on the tiller, a camera simply turned back upon "real life" does not a compelling movie make.

Audience Reviews for L.A. Superheroes

L.A. Superheroes is hilarious, vibrant and complex. It addresses the issues our society struggles with: authentic relationships, the definition of success and staying true to one's vision and truth. The questions it raises are those of a generation of people seeking purpose in a world of superficial values and goals. It brings together a talented cast with the intent to inspire, uplift and entertain. A must-see!
