This was the worse film I have watched in a long time. I found it to be boring and poorly directed. They probably had a very low budget to work with. The idea of a superhero who is a jackass has been done before with Will Smith in the movie Hancock. The story line was all not that bad but the acting and sound was poor. Not a good time waster for me!

He's an underachieving loser with superhero powers, which he wastes on being a jackass addict partier, but all he really wants is to be his kid's dad so he halfass tries to get his act together. Kind of touching actually.

This movie really surprised me! Great indie film.

Also - just so everyone knows - Katrina was NOT the first flood in New Orleans. It happened in 1927 as well when the levees were blown up on purpose.
