Great, great film!!!! I mean why wouldn't you want to watch a film in which the main character thinks his life is a movie?? Not only that but watch a film that knocks everything that is Hollywood!! Outstanding film!!

Who doesn't love a movie that has a guy in it that believes his life is a movie? Hey, don't knock it until you've seen it! It's awesome.

Fun "superhero" movie with a spoofish feel. Sisto, believes that he has an "audience" and that Stormare is his arch nemesis. His "antics" lead him to Meyer's who is his court appointed psychiatrist. The movie tries for a deeper meaning, with it possible that the "audience" is the soul or maybe the connection to god. Interesting movie overall, good for a lazy day.

This was a fantastic experimental indie film that I was lucky enough to catch on Showtime a few nights ago. The whole premise of reducing people to a title (love interest, doomed fiance, suspicious character) was really a very interesting concept. The acting and camera work were also notable, because they downplayed movie-norms and accepted a risky, artistic approach. Near the end of the movie, they do fall on some cliches, but that is to be expected when the whole movie is merely a movie in itself. I really liked this film, and I can't wait to see it again!

i was amazed by how this movie played out.. i was a bit irked at first but stuck with it till the end and was surprised with the results... its worth watching but viewer beware, its not all that may be expected.

Great movie. More of a sophisticated comedy. It has everything: romance, some action, a story line, and some pretty good comedy. I loved it.

The Movie Hero explores the role movies can have as inspiring us to live more fulfilling lives. I loved the metaphor of "audiences" being whatever the "spiritual force" is that connects people to each other. Really awesome way to think about life, IMO.

If you think movies can be more than just entertaining diversions from "real" life, if you're looking for a movie that you can love for its IDEAS and not just it's jokes, dramatic moments, or special effects, then this movie is worth a look.
