de Peter Stebbings


Hero or threat? This is a question that’s followed all kinds of superheroes, from Spiderman to Superman, and including the dark Batman. Defendor can’t elude this doubt. He possesses no powers, but is gung ho on dealing out justice. A parody of the comic book world like Kick Ass and Special (Sitges'06), Defendor moves between action and comedy led by a captivating Woody Harrelson. Like any good superhero story, it’s not missing a villain or gadgets: the "defendog", the "defendoor" and a handful of marbles used as his main weapon. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s an oaf with rivers of hope.
