I enjoyed it. Effects were a little iffy in the flying scenes, but quite good for an independent project. Would like to see something like this as a feature with a suitable SFX budget. Real potential.

My only real quibble is filmmakers who make characters smoke but don't cast actors who actually smoke. It's obvious the guy is not a smoker and takes away from the suspension of disbelief. And "smoking = bad guy" has become a complete cliche in film these days.

I thought he was smoking so much because he was anxious.


/interesting idea, awful pacing.

Is this made by the same Farker who did that movie with the sky falling while the guy is on the way to the airport?  It's equally as interesting.  Another film I would love to see made.

Another Farker is gonna have to find that, I wouldn't even know where to look for it.  It's been up here twice that I know about.  It's really well done.

I'm guessing you are referring to this vid:

Took me a little while to find but it's was worth it because after you mentioned it, I wanted to watch it again.  Thought it was really well done, as was this 'flying man' one too.

Also appears they are from different people.

Meh.

It doesn't say anything regarding the morality of theoretical superheroes that hasn't been said a million times before.

Who the Fark is Jimmy?
Well done independent. I really like the minimalist look of the flyer.

he was aiming for Chronicle but fell shorter than Hancock.

That was better than half the crap on tv. It wasn't a masterpiece but i'd watch a few episodes of that show.

Me too.

Though they should never have advertised it as a comedy. That abrupt shift is what through a lot of people out, I always thought.

I never saw any ads for it that I recall. I didn't even know it existed until I came across it on PPV one day. They advertised it as a comedy? That does seem really stupid.
