Media Film Evaluation
Liam Boulton
 
I
n what ways does your film challenge, use or develop forms andconventions of real media products?
 
‡ T
he research that
I
undertook showed that typical superhero films have many other sub-genres. Our film was mainly a drama sub-genre and focused little on the superhero genre.
T
his gave our film a more unique, creative side to it.
I
t doesn¶t follow the regular superherofilm forms and conventions.
‡ I
n most superhero films the superhero usually saves someone at the start, then a villain of some sort comes along and the film focuses on the hero defeating the villain. Our filmtakes on a completely different take of this genre because rather than a film where you seethe character as the hero, you see what it is actually like to live as a superhero behind themask.

his was influenced by the film µWA

MEN¶ as they are all retired heroes.

‡
Unlike your typical superhero film there was no action in our film.
T
his is because the film isabout the life of a superhero when he is not in action. Also our character was injured so hedid not boast any of his special powers which made him the superhero that he was.
I
nsteadwe see how weak he has become.
T
his is shown when David is leaving the supermarketwith his shopping and he is struggling to cope with the heavy bags. Eventually the bagssplit and he has to go home with nothing. On meeting his long term girlfriend she breaks upwith him because he is not the guy she used to love. David has not settled into real life.
‡
But like many films there is a turnaround when David leaves to start a new life as normalperson and leave his past of a superhero behind him. We felt that the best way to do thisscene was by David physically putting his past behind him so in this shot we had Davidleaving his home and as he walks out of the house he puts all of his superheromemorabilia in the bin.
