Sparks is based on a graphic novel of the same name written by Christopher Folino. During the original run of the comic he and William Katt (yes of Greatest American Hero fame) decided to try to bring it forward as a film. There’s more to it than that but this is supposed to be a review of the film and hot a historical treatise of it. However, it does bear to point out that the film was produced completely independently. It is very much a labor of love and it shows in the finished product.
Visually the film is a study in contrast. Scenes are shot in a way that is similar in feel to a combination of Sin City and a theatrical production. Because the production was completely independent and was shot quickly in one location, a lot of green screening was used. Much like it was in Sin City but it doesn't take anything away from the shots. It’s the same kind of feeling you would get watching a play where you know the characters aren't actually in the location they're pretending to be in but you accept the conceit and go along for the ride anyway.
The effects overall are magnificent.Read more ›
The acting is overall, pretty good, everyone does what they need to do to move the story forward. The effects are just good enough to do the job, but you can tell that they saved a lot of budget here. But I'd rather have a movie like this, where it's obvious everyone involved really worked on it and loved it.
Not saying that this is guardians of the Galaxy, but that this a great example of low budget movie making. I'd love to see more things like this, so we have more creativity. Certainly this movie has a different feel than all the marvel movies (which I love). It's nice to see someone trying to do their own thing.

So good! I am picky about superhero movies. I grew up on some of the best. So often, the script is tired and the action overblown. Sparks is neither of these. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Ellen Bierman
