Movie mini review: Defendor

I just watched the movie Defendor, which is a drama comedy starring Woody Harrelson. He plays a slightly mentally challenged person who roams the streets at night dressed up as a superhero. The movie follows his struggle to reach what in his mind is his arch-enemy, Captain Industry, using quite unorthodox methods. It is a very funny film, but has it’s dark (and quite gripping) moments. Woody Harrelson does a wonderful job of portraying the protagonist, and not once do you see him as an actor playing a role, but as the character he plays. While some of the supporting actors does seem a little flat, Michael Kellys performance stands out and his character feels genuinely caring.

All in all, I would strongly recommend this film.
