HASH(0x9d301e28) out of 5 stars Not a superhero flick, a dark psychological thriller May 26 2012
By Vince Veselosky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Don't believe the marketing blurbs. This movie is NOT a superhero flick, and if you go into it looking for a fun action-adventure you are going to be miserably disappointed. "Boy Wonder" is actually a very dark psychological thriller about a disturbed young man whose life was changed forever by the murder of his mother. Unable to deal with the pain and anger, he unleashes his violent fantasies on criminals and bullies.

The premise may sound like a Batman origin story, but the relationship ends there. There is no "WHAM POW and the good guys win" in Boy Wonder, just a self-destructive young man spiraling out of control, immersing himself in violence to deaden the pain. If you like stories with this element of darkness, then Boy Wonder is a must-see.

Otherwise, just go watch Iron Man 2 again.

HASH(0x9d301e40) out of 5 stars A Dark, Powerful Thriller! June 24 2012
By Jonathan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Boy Wonder is not a superhero movie. Although it shares a similar origin story to many of our favorite superheroes, Boy Wonder is about a kid, Sean, that witnesses his mother get murdered. He is haunted by this memory and decides to hunt down the man that killed his mom. Throughout the story, he'll seek justice for others usually in a violent way (often fist-fighting or shooting). There are other psychological aspects that you begin to notice during the second half of the film when you realize Sean may actually be mentally ill. The ending has some decent twists. The emotional story, the thrilling action, and even the comedy between the cops make this film a great one. The acting was great, and the music really stood out to me. Definitely one of the better films released recently. Is it a pure superhero film? No. Don't expect a huge budget with amazing special effects and mutated villains. This is a realistic film of a young man seeking justice.

There is some violence and blood throughout the film, and there is no sex or nudity. If you're even slightly interested, Boy Wonder is available on Netflix streaming as of 6/24/12. I highly recommend you check it out.

HASH(0x9d303294) out of 5 stars Vigilante, Thriller Flick that Will keep you guessing Feb. 16 2014
By Tommy Dooley - Published on Amazon.com
There have been a spate of super hero films my personal fave being `Super', but there are some very good ones indeed and I thought this might be the same. Happily I was completely wrong - this owes as much to revenge films as any other genre. We meet Sean (played with considered poise by Caleb Steinmeyer - `Lost'). He witnessed the brutal murder of his mother as a child and has since become something of a recluse. His alcoholic father with a history of domestic abuse and is ambiguous in his paternal role but it is quite clear from the start that Sean aint exactly crazy about pops.

He maintains the guise of a straight `A student' at school and spends his spare time going through mug shots of ne'er do wells at the local Police precinct who handled the murde - ostensibly to identify his mothers killer. Then a new female detective comes along and takes a big professional interest in our reclusive teen who seems to be always `falling over' and getting bruised etc. What he is hiding is that he has become a night stalker, vigilante who wants to take out bad guys. This is not a `Death Wish' he actually comes across as genuinely scared at what he is doing; but he goes ahead anyway. The violence is the realistic sort - not stylised rubbish that owes more to choreography and as such it all adds to lend authenticity to the film.

I kept thinking this was going to verge into cliché as it has the feel of a low budget indie film, but it keeps you guessing right up till the end and the more I saw, the more I really liked it. It has also stayed with me which is no bad thing at all. God acting, great script, genuine twsits and an actual thriller of a plot. The only thing they appear to have got wrong was the lack of publicity as I only happened across this by chance - absolutely recommended.

HASH(0x9d303210) out of 5 stars Excellent March 4 2013
By Roger - Published on Amazon.com
The only reason I didn't rate this a five is that it misses some of the the attributes of a high dollar film. Though quite subtle, you could see that the budget was somewhat restrained. Having said that, I'm sure I'll curse myself for months (as, in fact, I am now) for not not declaring my freedom from high dollar films.

This movie was perfect.

It'll be a long time before I forget this movie. One thing you'll not want to do is blink. If you blink you'll miss something. It's not just because the film requires attention and thought, but because it will also dig into every emotion you've ever owned and set them afire.

I replayed the ending four times. I challenge you to do it in fewer.

In short, this was an amazingly good film. A movie in the finest tradition of excellence. I'll be watching for Michael Morrissey's next venture. Morrissey wrote, directed and produced this film. He's a star.

I've just changed my rating to 5.

HASH(0x9d30360c) out of 5 stars Great movie Nov. 7 2011
By bridget3420 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
My husband and I are movie buffs. We love to sit down and watch a new film whenever we have the chance. Psychological-thrillers are one of my favorite types of movies. Combine that with a good versus evil theme and I'm sold! Boy Wonder is the perfect combination. The acting is good and it has a believable plot which is a nice change for a superhero movie. I can totally see why it has won 15 awards.
