If you’ve seen the move Hancock, this will remind you of it. Except the hero, Reaver, is not a depressed drunk. And he has not one villain to fight, but about eight or ten. And they have extraordinarily cool names–Octagon, Macabre, Laser Beast, Tempest, Siren, Mistress Mary, Stellar, and a few others.
Reaver was created from an accident involving a chemical spill (where have we heard that one before?), and he now has super strength, invulnerability, and can move three times faster than a normal human being. He can be injured, but he heals super quick, so the villains get in some good licks, even though Reaver manages to always buy enough time so he’s never completely down and out.
His fights are not the whole story though–he’s been defeated by Octagon, but manages a reprieve of two weeks, after which, he will allow Octagon to dispatch him. In that time, he does some soul searching, along with trying to catch up with an old flame who still loves him.
It’s got some good laughs in it, as well as evoking some sympathy, a la Hancock, as Reaver reveals his human side in battling both the gang of villains and his race to check off his bucket list before time is up. it’s very satisfying, much like the Hancock movie, which was great.
