  • Woody Harrelson is construction worker by day, self-made superhero by night in DEFENDOR, a comedy that takes aim at society's infatuation with comic book mythologies. While the city is awake, Arthur Poppington (Harrelson) holds traffic signs, and is nearly invisible to all who pass; after hours, he assumes his secret identity (complete with homemade costume) and prowls the streets in search of his arch-nemesis, Captain Industry. Along the way, he saves a young prostitute (Kat Dennings) from an abusive undercover cop (Elias Koteas), a move that proves his commitment to fighting for the weak, but also turns him into a real live fugitive from the law.

  • Critic Reviews
    4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he tension between silly comedy and poignant drama could have been dicey, but Stebbings and Harrelson maintain just the right balance between the two."
    Box Office

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

    "HARRELSON ventures outside his usual range in DEFENDOR....Harrelson strikes a perfect balance between pathetic buffoon and likable do-gooder." -- Grade: B
