Reviews

They patrol the dark and dangerous streets, seeking out criminals, evildoers and villans veiled in secret identities… out to save humanity… Winner of the 2011 Slamdance, this documentary follows the adventures of real life superheroes. They wear masks, fight crime and keep the streets safe. Watch in awe, embarrassment, and potential terror, as we learn what makes them tick.

The film starts with a guy in in an untidy flat. The décor may be dominated by piles of comic books, Power-Rangers figurines, and martial arts DVDs: Welcome to the Xtreme Cave, home of the Xtreme Justice league - led, naturally, by Mr. Xtreme. Melancholy music plays as we see what appears to be a lonely life, voice overs hinting at the deep level of child-abuse and bullying at school. Is this man a lonely, disillusioned guy unable to let go of his childhood and desperate to be a superhero? Or is he a grown-up vigilante wanting to see a bit of social justice? There's one thing he isn't - alone.

Superheroes follows the lives of several `Real Life Superheroes' who dress up in costume and have superhero names, instead of presenting them as a group of oddballs and weirdos, the film attempts to tell their personal stories and give us an idea of their motivations as well as giving us a glimpse of the practicalities of such a lifestyle. We see a range of costumed heroes but the film focusses on a few characters and Master Legend stands out more than the others. Clad in Lycra and moulded plastic he looks like a budget version of Robocop, at first he's a figure of fun as we see him unsuccessfully flirting with ladies and see the mock reactions of those acting exaggeratedly impressed. It's clear that the general public don't quite see Master Legend in the same way he sees himself, he tries to spread the word of God and takes himself very seriously as he patrols Orlando, downing a few beers on the way. We aren't given some homogenised explanation of why these guys do what they so, they each have their own reasons and some are more realistic about their influence than others. A troubled past and a sense of not fitting in socially seems quite common.

Superheroes is a worthy addition to this well-establish genre, arguably re-popularised by Michael Moore in the 1990s. Filmmaker Mike Barnett's piece is a straightforward portrait of some of America's real-life superheroes. Other than the nicely done cartooning that marks the film's chapters, and some shaky 'ride along' footage, it is mostly talking heads, but no worse off for that. The tendency might be towards a first reaction of 'Really?' but, while there seem to be varying degrees of 'grip on reality' among the subjects, it's hard to argue that their intentions are anything other than good. There are a surprising number of participants, with a wide geographical spread, revealing the breadth of this activity, and almost all have a sense of their own limitations, operating within those bounds, and the law - setting their sights on realistic and attainable objectives. No-one here is going to affect the spin of the Earth or fly an atomic bomb through a portal in the space-time continuum (of course!), but it would be a cold person who was not affected by the good deeds that these citizens do. Their public spirit is admirable and it's to be hoped that there are many more people out there willing to step up in their own (quieter) way when evil rears its head in our communities. Barnett's film is well worth a watch.

This doc is funny, sad and factual all in one. There are moments when I felt a bit creeped out because these people go into the street wearing superheroe costumes, but it was a heartwarming tale of people who wanted to do good in the world. Oddly brilliant
