Movie Review by Martin
December 29th, 2010

I thought "Defendor" was going to be some sort of hidden gem. One of those flicks barely anyone has heard off but all those who have seen it say it's great. Despite the fact it has been unfairly ignored however it really is just an average movie.

Film sees Woody Harrellson as a mentally challenged tragic hero who believes he is a superhero of sorts and goes after crooked cop Elias Koteas amongst others.

"Defendor" starts off kind off funny as we laugh at Harrelsons characters expense. But when the film turns away from mocking the idea of an average shmuck trying to be a superhero and focusses more on his actual heroics or tragic background, it all feels like it has no idea what kind off film it really wants to be.

All in all this has an impressive cast, lead by an always awesome and likeable performance from Harrelson, but it's no real surprise that it has gone by everyone virtually un-noticed, and I think even went straight to Dvd here in Britain.
