Stefan Drees's rating of the film Superheroes

It's a very sad documentary: People looking for appreciation in trying to be (super)heroes, devoting their lives to a naïve and morally problematic idea and thereby losing the grip to reality. Regarding the movie there are some visually interesting points in using animated sequences or elements of comic books; but the music sometimes is too affirmative. I had wished for a more critical approach.
