A young Brooklyn boy witnesses the brutal murder of his mother and grows up obsessed with finding her killer. Thus begins his life as a quiet, straight-A student by day and a self-appointed hero at night. But what is a real hero? And who decides what is right or wrong? As the boundaries blur, Sean’s dual life wears on his psyche and his two worlds careen dangerously close to colliding. Like a graphic novel you can’t put down, Boy Wonder challenges morality, distorting perceptions of what is right and what is justified, as it races to its shocking conclusion.
I was pleasantly surprised by this film. A typical revenge–movie. But it was put together pretty well with a surprising end. Steinmeyer plays the teen who’s hungry for revenge in a very realistic way. He looked tormented the whole movie.
The few fight scenes are short but energetic and pure violent. Boy Wonder is actually not so bad when you think of all the other crap thriller that have flooded the market recent years. Keep an eye on that guy Caleb. I think we’ll hear from him much more in the future !
