A high school student becomes a superhero without powers, training, or a meaningful reason.


Why watch this film?

At a time when superheroes were still in a growth period and little had been explored in this sector, director Matthew Vaughn (of 'Kingsman') decided to pursue this curious comic book story of a school loser who becomes a superhero. It's a stylized, violent, and almost nonsensical production. Yet it still manages to elicit some laughs and, even after the "Marvel wave," shows how it's possible to find freshness in the stories of these figures dedicated to saving the world.
