DVD Review “Superheroes”

Directed by: Michael Barnett
Distributed by: New Video
MPAA Rating: Not Rated
Running Time: 81 minutes

Overall Score: 1 out of 5 stars

Let me start with…GIVE ME A BREAK. I know everyone wants to be a superhero when they are kids but these sickos take it to a whole new level. I get the idea behind the film is to show their good intentions by helping people and “protecting” the streets but honestly I can’t believe this. So in case you don’t get it, these people believe that they are real superheroes. I find myself laughing at them and think its time they pack up their Spidey underoos up and leave this to the professionals.

The documentary itself is a tale about these peoples courage as they merge fantasy into reality and patrol the mean streets to fight crime. They focus on a group of these costumed avengers and their real-life stories. Some of these clowns use names like Mr. Xtreme, Dark Guardian and Vigilante-Spider. They really need to get a grasp on reality and realize that these superhero characters like Batman and Spider-Man are fake and started as comic book characters.

The special features included are deleted scenes, which are additional tales of these “superheroes”. There is also the theatrical trailer. I wouldn’t suggested watching these deleted scenes unless you really enjoyed this film. Overall I think the film itself is well done by Michael Barnett but just the topic is a joke with these tools.
