Griff is Great!

Rating: 9/10


I just saw Griff the Invisible about two hours ago at the Toronto
International Film Festival. There have been a number of
average-guys-becoming-superhero movies this year and this is
Australia's contribution. However, I'd have to say this is easily the
best. The best part of the film is the quirky originality of the two
main characters, Griff and Melody. They are weird, funny and
believable. They don't fit any stock type of character I've seen
before, but appear as two genuinely original creations. At the end of
the movie, I felt like I wanted to see more of these characters.

Griff the Invisible is also different from all the other offerings
because the others hit you over the head with the predictable moral
that superheros are just a fantasy (like we don't know that) and that
reality is better than fantasy. Without giving anything away, this film
turns that moral on it's head. For once a movie doesn't make you feel
guilty about your adolescent fantasies!

The movie was very well received by the Festival crowd with healthy
applause and even some yells of appreciation at the end. I think the
movie was mostly appreciated for the likability of the characters, the
humour, the fresh writing style and just the general entertainment
value.
