DEFENDOR!!

  I expected this to just be a quirky movie about a guy with some issues who takes it upon himself to battle against the evil "Captain Industry".  I didn't think it looked great, just an indy movie where I'd get a couple cheap laughs as Woody Harrelson cheesed up
a goofy character who thinks he's a super hero. 

And to my amazement, this wasn't that at all. 

Much darker in tone than I expected, this movie takes itself pretty seriously.  The motivations of Defendor and the actual feel of the entire movie has a lot more weight to it than what any of the trailers I had seen let on.  Damaged characters well acted by an excellent cast, a few nods to the super hero genre,  and a really solid story.
Give it a shot.
