Movie Info

SPARKS is based on the independently released graphic novel series and has been adapted for the big screen by the series creator, Christopher Folino. The feature film version brings together two of Hollywood's rising stars Chase Williamson (John Dies At The End) and Ashley Bell (The Last Exorcism) who are supported by award winning actors Clancy Brown (Highlander, The Shawshank Redemption), Clint Howard (How the Grinch Stole Christmas), Jake Busey (Starship Troopers) and William Katt (Carrie, The Greatest American Hero). High Action Excitement -- Washington Times Outstanding Super Hero Thriller ***** - Examiner.com The city faces a deadly killer. He goes by many names, has many faces... all of them deadly. Is he Kevin Sherwood? Is He Ring Master Jesus. Is he The Matanza Killer? Ian Sparks will learn. Fighting crime became a mission for Sparks when he lost his parents in a fireball car crash. Burning with desire for revenge, he finds himself in the belly of the beast, where havoc is wreaked for profit and life is cheap. Joining a handful of super heroes operating in the shadows, what they have in common is greater than Sparks can imagine; but the cost of finding the killer and uncovering the truth may be more than he can afford.

Busks its 1940s saga of dark redemption with considerable visual energy, if not always coherence or competence.

Here's a hearty keep-at-it award for Christopher Folino and Todd Burrows, directors of this restless, reckless superhero crime curio ...

This film is far better than it has any right to be.

Sparks shows plenty of cinematic muscle. It deserves a place among the legion of superhero movies.

Audience Reviews for Sparks

Quite possibly the shittiest movie I've ever seen. Looks like it was made by high school kids or a spoof on SNL. Script, acting both horrendous. Don't get duped by the positive reviews. Avoid this steaming turd like the zika virus!

Cashing in on the boom in superhero films is this ... what is it? A Sin City knockoff? Most probably, with a heavy nod to the film noir of the late 1940's/early 1950's, only w/o a connection to any of that. It's like kids dressing up as Mommy and Daddy. One of those films of which description begins with the words: "its sooooo bad that ..."? Yes, all of that.

Awful! A dreadful pile of rubbish. The people responsible for this have been doing all they can to publish false good reviews on sites such as IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
