good mix of action, comedy and drama

woody harrelson stars as arthur poppington, a 'slow' adult who believes he is a superhero fighting crime. at night he dons the persona of defendor and uses his skills and gadjets to bring petty criminals to justice. he is in constant search of 'captain industry', the man whom he believes sells drugs to the city, and that killed his mother. despite his limited mental capacities, defendor is actually successful as a crimefighter, although he keeps getting hurt and into trouble. the movie is very original, and i always love woody harrelson. the filmmakers don't make many mistakes and there aren't loads of cliches like in traditional superhero movies. highly recommended.
