This is only my second short film that I have reviewed for this site and I’m glad to say that this is my second pleasant surprise. The backbone of this short film revolves around the superhero world turned upside down with a touch of X -steria(not a real word) thrown in.
We tend to think of Super Heroes as either good or evil , respected or feared. What if that respect and fear was gone? If using their powers meant death or imprisonment? if society hated them but no longer had a reason to fear them……they’d pick up rocks for a living. That’s what they’d do. They’d do menial work which in no way gave them any kind of status in society.
So for the 4%…..that’s what they do. Treated like illegals in their own country.
More recent news on this venture came courtesy of the Fine folks at Deadline.They state that XYZ films has acquired International sales rights to code 8.They also state Steven Amell is in the short film……and he is not.
Below is also the link to the Indiegogo fund raiser that has garnered over $1.7 million towards the budget for the film so far.
Please check the short film out. It’s well worth it for the acting, cinematography ,and very real near future of drones .
