Netflix released the French action film “How I Became a Superhero” in its catalog, but once again failed to convince its subscribers.
On social media, moviegoers criticized the production and claimed not to recommend the film to anyone.

judging from a french movie called how i became a superhero, lack of development, better action scene and also a much more explained timeline, the special effects were good but what good if the story is meh: note 4/10

I watched this “How I Became a Superhero” from Netflix. do you know this movie, also from netflix, power? well, it’s basically the same thing, just in French. the difference is that this French is even better. if he had the investment that an American film has, he would be mt superior to Power

Read our review
When everyone is a superhero and has superpowers, what really makes someone a hero? This question had already been raised in the first film of the Disney animated franchise ‘The Incredibles’, and now reappears, redesigned, in the French film ‘How I became a superhero’.
Policeman Moreau (Pio Marmaï) is a somewhat cranky guy who works alone in a police station in Paris. When a fire breaks out in a nightclub, killing five people, Moreau arrives late at the scene of the crime and ends up having to work with a new partner, Callista (Leïla Bekhti). However, the two begin to realize that several superheroes are disappearing; Interestingly, their powers are viewed as weapons by civilians. In a world where powers are passed from father to son when the parent dies, the only possible explanation Moreau and Callista understand is that the heroes’ blood is smuggled through someone on the streets of Paris.
Unlike Pixar’s animation, “How I Became a Superhero” is based on the idea that when you live in peace with people with special powers, it gives them an advantage over others; as soon as their powers can be transferred in one way or another – even momentarily – so that ordinary people can solve their ailments, the whole would probably lose its prestige and become a problem for the local authorities. This is why, despite the concept, this film’s narrative line is built through detective thriller, not the juvenile adventure led by Marvel.
Based on the novel by Gérald Bronner, the screenplay by Cédric Anger, Melisa Godet and Charlotte Sanson with their director colleague Douglas Attal offers an intersection between the heroic adventure and the sober tone of the adult world, seeking to relate much more to life. daily of the protagonist who will become a hero than to focus on super fight scenes with destruction of the city. So since the heroes in the film aren’t aesthetically different or wear uniforms, it was up to the visual effects guys to make the difference – and, in fact, the effects are pretty compelling.
Although with an interesting concept, the main problem with “How I Became a Superhero” is that he doesn’t make up his mind on what he wants. By humanizing – even too much – the heroes (those who should be unreachable beings) become ordinary, boring people who follow a routine and suffer from depression and other illnesses. Thus, the film generates confusion as to whether it intends to deepen the social reflection of the theme or whether it only provides a sad backdrop for its characters. Starting with the protagonist himself, odious but who, during the film, undergoes an inexplicable (or little worked) transformation, in search of redemption from the spectator’s empathy.
Oddly, ‘How I Became Superhero’ is a different superhero movie, without big blasts, and features a range of oddly interesting characters. Judging by the success he’s had on Netflix – and the post-credit scene – he’s likely to have a continuation.
