Movie Summary

Director:
Peter Stebbings
Released:
2009
Rating:
R
Arthur Poppington (2009 Golden Globe Nominee Woody Harrelson- Best Supporting Actor, The Messenger) doesn't need superpowers or fancy toys to fight crime. Armed only with a childlike sense of wonder and his quirky arsenal of cheap, homemade gadgets, he becomes DEFENDOR! He finds an unexpected partner when he rescues and falls for a local prostitute (Kat Dennings, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist). Can the two of them take down the city's most fearsome crime boss without getting killed in the process?

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    Variety Dennis Harvey

    Harrelson shines, particularly in framing scenes with Sandra Oh as a tactful court psychiatrist.

  • 50

    Los Angeles Times

    For all its aspirations, the film never meshes into something cohesive or substantial. Its naive earnestness has its charms, but like its title character, Defendor never takes flight.

  • 50

    The Hollywood Reporter Michael Rechtshaffen

    Saving the day is Harrelson's low-key, rooted performance, adding an unexpected layer of poignancy when things take a decidedly darker turn.
