Imagine if you woke up one day and discovered your father was a retired superhero. And not just any superhero, but Kryptoman! (Think: Superman)
Writer-director Mike Doto has taken that concept and crafted 12 of the most majestic and enchanting minutes you are likely to see all year with “The Legacy.”
From the pitch-perfect music to the spot-on casting, “The Legacy” is entertaining from the first frame until the last. And, frankly, if there is one negative I can say about the film, it is that “The Legacy” is too short. I definitely was left wanting more when the credits rolled.
However, a full story is told in those 12 minutes. In fact, Doto gets as much story in the film’s truncated length as some high-concept films manage in 80 to 90 minutes.
Now, typically, at this point in a review one might reveal some details about the plot, but some of the story’s twists are part of the fun and I would rather not ruin that for any potential viewers.
What I will say is that I watched “The Legacy” with a friend of mine and immediately after we watched it, we turned to each other and asked the same question: “Do you want to watch it again?”
