American Hero

Action . Comedy . Science Fiction . Drama

Melvin, a reluctant hero who is far from super, has been suppressing his telekinetic powers for years with booze, drugs, and women. In the process, he has failed at practically everything, most of all as a parent to his son. After a brush with death, Melvin decides to use his powers for good and clean up the streets of New Orleans with the help of his best friend/definitely-not-a-sidekick, Lucille. For a man who can do the impossible, it might be a fight even he can’t win.

    Love does a fine job evoking the social and cultural vibe of the Big Easy and its environs. He also enjoyably uses documentary-style testimonials from Melvin's devoted friends and supporters, inspired editing and a slew of nifty visual effects.

    What’s missing is much in the way of substantial drama or character development.

    American Hero starts off seeming as if it is going to be a fresh take on superheroes, but Nick Love, who wrote and directed, turns out to have nowhere to go with his intriguing premise.

    The filmmakers blend tones like a child mixing fountain drinks into one unidentifiable flavor.

  • Nick Allen

    American Hero is an obnoxious rock star moment, with images of Americana that have apparently been lost in translation by an outsider British director. Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    American Hero, which intermittently uses a faux-documentary style to awkward effect, never quite decides what it wants to be.
