If you ever wondered what the movie Kick Ass would look like if it had a tiny budget and a mediocre script, then watch Alter Egos. This movie isn’t horrible, just lacking.
Alter Egos is set in a time where superheros are funded by the government. But being too good at their jobs there hasn’t been a supervillian in a while, so the government cuts funding and the public doesn’t see much reason to keep them around.
Fridge, our main character, has gone to meet up with fellow superhero C-Thru to help him transport a prisoner. But he’s not much help as he is dealing with a crisis of his own. His girlfriend who is with alter ego Brendon is having affair, with his superhero side. Confused? So is Fridge.
Things become even more complicated when he meets the girl of his dreams, Claudel and discovers the truth about the prisoner C-Thru has in custody.
Alter Egos is slow to get on it’s feet but in the end is quirky low-budget indie that you don’t mind watching on a Saturday afternoon when there isn’t anything on.
