After being shot while calling for help trying to stop a violent attack on his high school girl, a 16 year old boy awakens from a coma to discover that fragments of his smart phone have embedded in his brain, giving him superhero powers. He uses this knowledge and technology to exact revenge on the gang responsible for the attack.
Acting and production was great, but too many holes. Still a good watch though.
The main pitfall of this movie was that it wasn't really believable to the viewer, there were too many holes left unfilled. If the viewer can't conceptualize the story, they won't connect. Honestly, it's a real shame because the acting was above par, the production was great, but the gaps in the storyline prevented it from being a much better movie.
On another note....the name....iBoy? With just with the name alone I expected it to be a b-rated film.
That said, don't let the reviews stop you from watching it. It's good. Just don't be disappointed when you realize that it could've been so much more with a better, thought out storyline.
