Samaritan (2022): Movie Review
Plot: 25 years ago the world's greatest hero vanished.
Thirteen-year-old Sam Cleary suspects that his mysteriously reclusive neighbor Mr. Smith is actually the legendary vigilante Samaritan, who was reported dead 20 years ago. With crime on the rise and the city on the brink of chaos, Sam makes it his mission to coax his neighbor out of hiding to save the city from ruin.
Review: In the movie Samaritan, a little boy named Sam and a Superhero named Joe, who gathers trash, sports a hoodie, and keeps to himself, are the main characters.
Samaritan, a superhero long believed to have passed away, was really killed in a blast 25 years prior, along with his evil twin Nemesis.
Sam, who resides on the wrong side of the street, is regularly taunted and assaulted by some street lads.
Sam believes that Joe is the hero who once defended the rights of the residents of Granite City's impoverished neighborhoods after Joe skillfully rescues him from a group of thugs.
Sam, who is fixated on Samaritan, won't abandon this reclusive man by himself.
As the narrative progresses, it becomes clear that Joe isn't simply an ordinary person. He lifts automobiles and does long jumps, in addition he throw tires around like they were nothing.
He also defeats the neighborhood gang with ease, however it gets a little harder when Cyrus, the gang's leader, steals Nemesis's mask and magical hammer.
HITS: Walton offers a delicate performance, and Stallone is entertaining to watch and further demonstrates his acting prowess.
FLOPS: The film lacks the elements necessary to totally enthrall audiences who enjoy watching superhero flicks. It is in no way comparable to the most current superhero films.
