Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: "American Hero" starts off seeming as if it is going to be a fresh take on superheroes, but Nick Love, who wrote and directed, turns out to have nowhere to go with his intriguing premise. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Dec 10, 2015

Rotten: The filmmakers blend tones like a child mixing fountain drinks into one unidentifiable flavor. – Aaron Hillis, Village Voice, Dec 8, 2015

Rotten: A Dorff sideshow first and foremost, "American Hero" is far too casual with Melvin's character arc, and the appeal of superhuman abilities. – Nick Allen,, Dec 11, 2015

Unexpected, but refreshing

I didn't have any expectations walking into this movie but after seeing it I can honestly say that with all of the remakes, prequel's, and everything else out there right now... to have a movie take a movie take a original/unique approach to the superhero genre is very refreshing to say the least.

Also, it earned each one of the stars I put up there because of how it seemed to just "flow" from start to finish.


Worst movie I have ever seen

Wow!….Just wow!

This was a sneak attack film! Powerful read between the lines drama. It’s refreshing, gritty and unique. This is not a typical comic book movie. Think real world anti hero with inner struggle to be the better man everyone expects him to be, with a fear of not being good enough for himself or his family. Truly remarkable telling, the cinematic was empowering and naturally rough with a realistic grit. Highly enjoyable film if you don’t expect a blockbuster comic book hero Avenger type film. I recommend it!
