  • Strickly for Kids

    4.5
    This is a weird mix because its written and conceptualized in a world straight out of a kids imagination, but its been given a hyper real face lift type look (a la christopher nolan) the dichotomy between the absurd and the "realistic" makes this show off putting. If your under the age of 16 or you love the family channel this is the right fit. The content simply didn't make any attempts at plausibility when the environments and cinematography are trying to scream real world modern crime drama.moreless
  • A nice spin on what the world would be like if...

    we had everyday people with the same attitudes and issues as the rest of us and they just happen to have super powers. Great imagination and even the cast works, however.. I think the pace is sort of quirky.. Too much time spent on scenes to fill the hour instead of moving along with at a faster pace. The story has depth, it needs to move faster. create new scenes instead of dragging it out just to the point where it gets boring. I think it needs new "direction" Having said that, I am still watching because it is just about compelling enough. I'm just saying.. this is a great idea and a quality product, visuals, shock, cast.. all it could be better.

    Needs new direction IMO.moreless

    Seriously, this show is great for what it is. Going into it i thought it might be lame because the protagonist lost his powers, but that is not the case at all. You've got Sharlto Copley(District 9, Chappie, Elysium), Eddie Izzard (Hannibal, The Riches), and Noah Taylor (Peaky Blinders, Game of Thrones) in the mix! The show is both serious and "comic book-like/not-so-realistic" and will surely satisfy scifi, comic book nerds around who are capable of enjoyment. My only gripe is that it's on PSN and hasn't had much marketing behind it. Watch the the first 3 episodes. I wish this was getting as much hype as the new Heroes sequel/spin-off, because this is far beyond what heroes was. I do hope he gets his powers back at least temporarily or has them on and off at one point in the show.moreless
  • Hooked by Powers

    Was aware of the comic years back and wanted to read the run; but sheeeshh, what they charge/gouge for an issue, forgetaboutit. I freak out nowadays with the model toys and paraphernalia and wonder how much disposable income do kids have to indulge themselves in fanboy status.



    Anyway, liking the show big time, I totally bought the acting - Walker who was once almost godlike in power reduced to being human, I'd say it was more like a phantom limb to 100th degree and the frustration and impotence he must feel and then to take on powers that in some cases could end you as easily as blowing a dandelion, but because he is innately a hero, he nails it, as does his partner with her bravado and take 'em down attitude.



    I can see the language putting some people off, particularly families, but there is almost something honorable about people who attempt to help or do the right thing in the face of the insurmountable odds especially after losing so much and continuing to struggle to uphold the law or protect and serve is a great character study that I sometimes think only would exist in a comic book world these days.

  • powerfully terrible!

    2.0
    Only watched the first EP but if this show was on an actual network it would be cancelled before the first season. The lead actor (Diamond / Walker) is awful and best suited to acting in B movies! Sony tries and fails miserably on their take at a gritty adult oriented super hero series. Even if Eddie Izzard started telling jokes it couldnt save this turkey.
  • SQUARE CIRCLE TRIANGLE X

    PlayStation's Powers Won't Save the Day, But It's Fine for a Few Hours

    The fledgling network's first original series is more cop show than superhero show.

  • YES, ANOTHER COMIC ADAPTATION

    Sony's Powers Adaptation Casts Sharlto Copley as Christian Walker, Michelle Forbes as Retro Girl

    If you're unfamiliar with the project, it sounds kinda like Heroes or Alphas.
