Under Review: ‘The Legacy’


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?”

“The Legacy” currently is being submitted for inclusion in film festivals. We will have additional information about how to view the film as soon as it is made available. To learn more about “The Legacy,” go to
