A MUST SEE film
11 December 2014 | by takiyyaheywardSee all my reviews

Loved how the movie starts off portraying the everyday people into superheros and villains. We all have them in our lives and this movie really did a wonderful job exposing them. Movie is extremely easy to relate to. Had me feeling all the emotions every character went through and had me wondering "WHATS NEXT?!!" the artwork was fantastic and tied in with every scene. Everything about this film is original. Seems like a film that was not rushed and took a lot of time and effort into making. This definitely shows .The director has done a great job capturing all of this and I will continue to look out for other films made by him. Hope to be seeing a lot more work from him.
