Storyline

What would have happened if Superman's ship hadn't landed in Smallville, but in a poor city next to Buenos Aires? Based on the superb comic book by Leo Oyola, Kryptonita tells the story of an unconventional roguish Justice League (a classic Robin Hood metaphor), trying to save Kal-El's life from the police and no other than Doomsday himself. While kept hostage by Juan Raro (J'onn J'onzz), Cuñataí Güirá (Hawkgirl), El Faisán (Green Lantern), El Ráfaga (The Flash), a transvestite named Lady Di (Wonder Woman) and El Federico (Batman), a night shift doctor fights to keep Nafta Súper alive after removing a chunk of kryptonite from his side. Enjoy this fantastic reinterpretation of the Justice League, and keep an eye out for the Joker. Written by Boromir

doesn't deliver the punch thats required
4 December 2016 | by SpannersGerm669See all my reviews

Being a massive fan of Niconar Loreti, I have to say that i was very excited coming into Kryptonita, considering that i loved his other film "Diablo". Being its own version of the Justice League, the movie had the recipe for success, but unfortunately after it comes out of the oven, somehow it just doesn't taste very good. Creativity within a tired story is definitely the films strong point. Taking creative liberties while still being true to its source material, will not have fans insulted, but where it fails is its lack of interest. I have read here on IMDb from one reviewer that Kryptonita is a much more real look at superheroes, and this here, in my opinion, is the problem. With nothing much happening during the run time, I believe the movie poster and trailer are very misleading. Instead of delivering a fast paced, crazy and fun action hero movie, it is more of a character drama with superhero elements in it, which will leave the majority of movie goers feeling short changed! If you want a good movie from Niconar Loreti, try "Diablo" and probably skip this one and go and watch Civil War for a much more entertaining superhero experience!
