They Call Me Jeeg Robot
In a world where nearly all superhero movies follow the same bland structure, They Call Me Jeeg Robot breaks the mould and delivers a dark, gritty, violent story set in the seedy underbelly of Rome. Petty thief and low level gang member Enzo accidentally gains superpowers after falling into toxic waste in the river Tiber. As he starts to use his new abilities to commit bigger crimes he unwittingly angers a psychopathic gangster called ‘The Gypsy’. To further complicate matters, Enzo is befriended by Alessia, a traumatised girl who mistakes him for the personification of the hero in her favourite cartoon.
