NETFLIX Review: Defendor (2010)

Woody Harrelson is construction worker by day, self-made superhero by night in Defendor, a comedy that takes aim at society’s infatuation with comic-book mythologies. While the city is awake, Arthur Poppington (Harrelson) holds traffic signs, and is nearly invisible to all who pass; after hours, he assumes his secret identity (complete with homemade costume) and prowls the streets in search of his arch nemesis, “Captain Industry.” Along the way, he saves a young prostitute (Kat Dennings) from an abusive undercover cop (Elias Koteas), a move that proves his commitment to fighting for the weak, but also turns him into a real live fugitive from the law.

Interesting film I must say. Banded together with films like Kick-Ass, Super and Griff The Invisible as ‘everyday heroes’. Apparently though Defendor was made before Kick-Ass.

I rather liked, it felt more realistic than Super but also had some heart like Griff The Invisible. Woody Harrelson was pretty damn good as well.
