Griff the Invisible

18 Jan

griff the invisibleOffice drone Griff is mocked by his co-workers, yet at night his superhero alter ego takes to the air, defending Melbourne against menaces to society. Griff trusts no one with his secret — that is, until he meets brilliant scientist Melody. (Netflix)

So…hm. I don’t quite know what to think of this one. Because. Spoiler alert. He isn’t actually a superhero. He thinks he’s one. Which, actually could be material for a really funny comedy. But the thing is, Griff is almost “too” quirky for any of it to be considered funny. As in he might actually be psychologically damaged in some way, which puts this movie in a whole new light, so in that respect, it could be a really interesting drama. Except, the stuff he does is funny. Like booby trapping the office, running around the streets, it’s too funny to be a drama. So, I don’t think the writer quite knew what he wanted to do with this one. However, what I did appreciate was Ryan Kwanten’s performance. I am so used to seeing him as Jason Stackhouse on True Blood. This is a really nice change of pace for him. Griff is painfully shy, and more than a little quirky. Kwanten handles the interesting script really well. Overall though, he couldn’t save the indecisive super hero movie.
