Wow, this movie was awesome.
I sat down to watch this movie with no high expectations, and I was pleasantly surprised. Finally a “superhero” movie you can relate to, instead of everything being all high and mighty on morals and super powers.
“Defendor” had it all, comedy, action, drama and romance. What made this movie unique was the blend of genres which works really well. Initially I thought it was just a spoof of superhero movies, but “Defendor” is so much more than that.
The characters in the movie are real and believable. Hats off to Woody Harrelson for his marvelous performance as Arthur / Defendor. This role really showed off Woody’s acting talents. I think we can all see parts of ourselves in the Defendor character, and that is what makes this movie so powerful, so gripping and so entertaining.
And also to Elias Koteas for his role as the corrupt policeman and Kat Denings as her role of a young woman in drug abuse and harsh life situation. And the supporting roles were nicely portrayed as well.
The story told in “Defendor” easily picks you up and keeps you tight. It is really good and you can place yourself in that story. It is very believable and leaves you very entertained.
I was thoroughly entertained from start till end. Lots of good action, really good and solid story, and spectacular acting. This is definitely a keeper, a movie with enough value to be watched more than once.
A different kind of superhero.
Defendor is the story of a simple, deluded, child-like man, who thinks he’s a super-hero. In all likelihood, he should have died a swift and brutal death no later than ten minutes in, but it seems that God watches out for the simple-minded, even in movies. Somehow, Defendor even ends up bumbling his way into doing some good.
Woody Harrelson portrayed Arthur in a way that completely avoided mocking him. Imagine Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump. Arthur has definite reasons for his quest and his actions, and as those reasons are revealed during the movie, you become more and more attached to his character. Kat Dennings plays a young prostitute who befriends Arthur and is instrumental in helping him to his final destiny, and Sandra Oh stars as a psychiatrist who learns about Arthur along with the audience. No one is responsible for the acting burden that Harrelson has, but their performances are still solid.
I liked this movie a good bit. It was funny in some parts, and sad in others. We really don’t get to spend enough time with Arthur/Defendor and his world, but what’s here is pretty satisfying.
