Good development of the superhero concept.
11 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw this on Netflix, I assumed it was a TV series (possibly because of what I was watching at the time it was recommended). It's been a while since I watched a movie on Netflix.

It was strange to see the whole thing end after only 90mins, when I was expected it to drag on for at least 6 to 13 episodes. It's a very different perceptive, but it made me more impressed that they did do in an hour and a half.

The concept was pretty cool, but I did not quite understand exactly how iBoy's powers worked. What's going on in the movie seems different from what Netflix is selling.

I'm more use to seeing Brits play American superheroes than making ones themselves and they did a pretty good job developing that whole mythology of a super hero and even his connection to the super-villain. It's a lot like Unbreakable in that concept.

Definitely take a look.
