'Archenemy' - Movie Review

A young man named Hamster (Skylan Brooks) living in a rough area of an unnamed city tries to make a living by posting videos of street life on the movie's YouTube equivalent. His sister Indigo (Zolee Griggs) works for the neighbourhood drug lord in an attempt to lift the two of them out of their lousy life. Hamster begins filming local drunk Max Fist (Joe Manganiello) who claims he's from another universe where he was super-powered. Hamster's videos of Max prove very popular as Indigo runs afoul of her boss - and Max steps in to try to save them (and prove he's a hero, not just a drunk).

While the movie is a different take on superhero ideas than the current Marvel mainstream universe, the plot is fairly similar to a number of indie comic stories out there. The movie is helped along by being reasonably well constructed and acted, but isn't exactly outstanding. I enjoyed it simply because it was a bit different, but can only give it a lukewarm recommendation.
