Started well, but woefully overacted by the antagonist.

The vaguely stoned bully was quite cool though.

Pros:
The boss bad guy could deliver his lines clearly, even if he did ham it up a bit too much. The doomsday device was nice.

Cons:
Poor editing and shooting angles in the final office sequence leads us to some awful jump cuts. I had absolutely no idea what Bobby Young was saying.

Variable audio and delivery made this one a tough short to watch.

I've assumed that you only had an onboard mic. Cut to a close up if your actor doesn't have the volume to project across the room - that way you get the camera close and we can hear him.

This, unfortunately, was a film plagued with technical problems, and an underdeveloped story/script. Audio was often hard to hear, and the framing was generally uninspiring. On the good side, however, the villain was deliciously over-acted by Mark Heap's long-lost brother, a nice shooting location was used in the hallways scenes, and the doomsday device was a charming touch.

Keep making films, learn to iron out the audio and visual issues, and do yourself justice (if you excuse the superhero-themed pun)!

P.S. The beginning scene reminded of the first scene of the first episode of Archer, which can only ever be a good thing.

This film had its moments - the small amount of fighting was acted out well, and the doomsday device with the bent wire was a nice touch also.

Ultimately, this film couldn't overcome the sparse plot and hard to hear audio. Some of the scenes also felt stifled by the camera angles.
