Film Review: iBoy
iBoy, the council estate vigilante, boasts a super hero style Netflix exclusive with a new narrative. Imagine waking up in hospital to find you can manipulate technology with your mind. Cars, phones, computers, bank accounts…nothing is off limits.
Like all super hero films, this is a love story; a guy likes a girl, and secrets ensue. If you allow yourself to suspend belief in how messy iBoy’s “gift” actually would be to control, this is actually quite a fun watch. The acting and chemistry between the lead characters is cute to witness, and I genuinely felt an overwhelming amount of distain when he was betrayed.
Don’t expect The Matrix, or Kingsman for that matter, but this is enough to keep you engaged until the final showdown.
