5.0 out of 5 stars A Dark, Powerful Thriller!, June 24, 2012
This review is from: Boy Wonder (DVD)
Boy Wonder is not a superhero movie. Although it shares a similar origin story to many of our favorite superheroes, Boy Wonder is about a kid, Sean, that witnesses his mother get murdered. He is haunted by this memory and decides to hunt down the man that killed his mom. Throughout the story, he'll seek justice for others usually in a violent way (often fist-fighting or shooting). There are other psychological aspects that you begin to notice during the second half of the film when you realize Sean may actually be mentally ill. The ending has some decent twists. The emotional story, the thrilling action, and even the comedy between the cops make this film a great one. The acting was great, and the music really stood out to me. Definitely one of the better films released recently. Is it a pure superhero film? No. Don't expect a huge budget with amazing special effects and mutated villains. This is a realistic film of a young man seeking justice.

There is some violence and blood throughout the film, and there is no sex or nudity. If you're even slightly interested, Boy Wonder is available on Netflix streaming as of 6/24/12. I highly recommend you check it out.

Brutal violence and blood throughout the film, but it's safe because there is no sex or nudity? Hooray for a damaged young man who commits vengeful, brutal, bloody violence as long as there is no one making love or exposing the evil human body. This is a pretty messed up society!

To be fair, I actually never used the word "brutal" or graphic in my review to describe the violence in the film, I used the word "some", as in there is a light to moderate amount spread throughout the entire film; in other words, it's not excessive, brutal, or graphic. Now, if it makes you feel better, I'll remove the "so it's pretty safe" part of my review and let the readers decide instead.
