DJPowWow has it pretty much spot-on.
The lack of Super & Kick-Ass's crude humour both works for and against Special: it gives a different tone and feel, which is nice (and preferable to some people), but means it lacks the same kind of punch as the others. While I personally would give the later two films 5/5, this is a solid 4.
A "normal/delusional guy becoming a superhero" story, notable for pre-dating "Super", "Kick-Ass", and "Defendor". A bit more modest of a film, far less violent and not prone to the crude humor of "Super" and "Kick-Ass".
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
