A washed-up actor, who once played an iconic superhero, attempts to revive his career by writing and starring in a Broadway play. (IMDb)
  DrLed | Nov 5, 2017 |
An actor who used to play a superhero produces a crappy Broadway play.

For a movie that has so much to say to criticize the artlessness of Hollywood movies, it has very little to offer itself. The characters are cliches, with no development worth mentioning. The big dramatic moments have no emotional weight. And, despite being advertised as a comedy and having a very funny cast, it has less humor than most good dramas. The One Long Take gimick would be pretty cool and impressive if this were a suspense film. In a comedy, it's a disaster. And a two hour drum solo? My head still hurts.
