With all of the big superhero movies out this year, one that may fly under your radar is Peter Stebbings’ “Defendor.” The Hamilton, Ontario, shot and set film is one that superhero film fans should seek out.
The plot of the film revolves around Woody Harrelson’s character, Arthur Poppington, aka Defendor, trying to take down Hamilton’s crime boss, whom Poppington believes is his archenemy, Captain Industry. Poppington himself is a perpetual child, abandoned at a young age by his mother and clearly exhibiting mental issues. He only finds solace when he is Defendor, a makeshift hero who fights with marbles and jars full of wasps. Kat Dennings (pictured) plays a prostitute, also named Kat, who bonds with Poppington over their fractured pasts.
After playing in only a few theatres, “Defendor” is due to arrive on DVD April 13.
