4.0 out of 5 stars "..GOOD COMIC BOOK FUN.." 8 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a cheap comic book movie in that its low budget but its actually rather fun to watch, it takes various things from other films and mashes them up into something different and unique, the cast is pretty good as it was Ashley bell that attracted me to the film in the first place she is a great actress and should be in more big movies, the film has some pretty decent green screen effects and some occasional cheesy ones, its a bit of a cross between sin city and watchmen in its style but on a lower scale of course, the music is good and the cool end credits sequence, its certainly entertaining and enjoyable and is well paced out with some mild violence, for a low budget its done well and is worth checking out!
Good Blu-ray picture and there is a commentary and behind the scenes too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Authentic in every way 14 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Christopher Folino directs this film based on his own comic series of the same name. What's truly amazing about this effort is not that "It's good for an independent film" but that "It's good," period. Watching SPARKS, you don't realize it was made on a shoestring budget (Folino believed in the project so much that he mortgaged his house to make the movie), because it's as good as many big budget super hero films put there. I'd knock off a star because, like many films based on comic series, this one takes a few detours through multiple story lines, but the overall film is fun, sincere, and deeply entertaining. They don't make enough films like SPARKS anymore, so don't miss the opportunity to see this one!

By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
This is a film that people seem to really love or absolutely detest; I actually thought it had some very strong points and fell a bit flat elsewhere. It is a `superhero' tale and based on the graphic novel which tells the story of a meteor crashing to earth causing a genetically mutated group of people who become known as `the Rochester 13'. Then we have the story of the hero or rather `superhero' Ian Sparks (Chase Wiliamson - `John Dies at the End') whose parents are killed in an exploding car incident that was partially caused by the cops.

We jump ahead a number of years and Sparks has decided to go out righting wrongs and in the end teams up with Lady Heavenly played by Ashley Bell (`The Day') then they come up against a super villain and the rules of the game change forever... type thing.

Well all of that is pretty predictable and I quite liked the suspending belief as you swallowed their stories of woe. It unashamedly plays for the `noir' feeling and in many ways copies `Sin City' with its use of graphics and live action. However, it lacks the pathos of that film and is never consistent with the noir feeling, so at times it feels like we got only half the film that the makers wanted us to see - that may have been down to budget. The action is ok at best and sporadic and you will be amazed at a shotgun that causes no damage to the moving vehicle it is fired at, whilst killing the passenger.

Some have criticised the acting, but I think they had to play it in a kind of cheesy tongue in cheek way as the whole thing is quite unbelievable and some would argue that is as it should be. If you are a fan of super hero type films this will tick some of your boxes, if you are hankering for a noir then look elsewhere - if you just want some not too sensible viewing fun then this more than passes muster.
