Editors Note
Note Woody Harrelson is construction worker by day, self-made superhero by night in DEFENDOR, a comedy that takes aim at society's infatuation with comic-book mythologies. While the city is awake, Arthur Poppington (Harrelson) holds traffic signs, and is nearly invisible to all who pass; after hours, he assumes his secret identity (complete with homemade costume) and prowls the streets in search of his arch nemesis, "Captain Industry." Along the way, he saves a young prostitute (Kat Dennings) from an abusive undercover cop (Elias Koteas), a move that proves his commitment to fighting for the weak, but also turns him into a real live fugitive from the law.
Box Office 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he tension between silly comedy and poignant drama could have been dicey, but Stebbings and Harrelson maintain just the right balance between the two." 02/15/2010
Hollywood Reporter "Saving the day is Harrelson's low-key, rooted performance, adding an unexpected layer of poignancy when things take a decidedly darker turn." 02/25/2010
A.V. Club "HARRELSON ventures outside his usual range in DEFENDOR....Harrelson strikes a perfect balance between pathetic buffoon and likable do-gooder." -- Grade: B 04/14/2010
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t brews its own unique vibe. It's also rather touching." 11/01/2010
