This Indie movie hopefully won't confuse anyone simply because it
concerns superheroes, it is definitely on the small-scale and personal
side. That does not mean it is a bad movie and it uses the superhero
genre to explore different sides of personal relationships, but if you
are expecting epic action to any degree then look away.
There are probably other ways you could have told this story, but the colourful costumes and dry wit of the situations work well together and creates an enjoyable atmosphere. Perhaps the best part of the superhero structure used here is that the main character's confusion over his own identity. Not only is it compelling, but it makes him diverse and both likable and dislikeable at the same time, avoiding the trap of creating a bland avatar or annoying totem to preach from.
Overall this is an enjoyable movie that is hard to classify as any one genre, I will say that there is more romance and comedy than drama or action, although it has smatterings of all four. I would recommend this movie for a casual watch as it is enjoyable, but doesn't really have any stand-out moments to make you rush out and see it right away.

Brendan, a.k.a. the instant ice-forming superhero Fridge, has become jealous of himself over his steady girlfriend Emily's preference for sleeping with posturing Fridge over whiny geek Brendan. Superhero buddy C-Thru would like Brendan to get it together, get out of his Fridge tights and have a good wash. With superheroes in public disfavor and government subsidizing being pulled, its a sad day when they have to haul in Shrink, the last known and captured supervillain. Waiting for nightfall when Shrink can be transported from their motel room, Brendan runs across Claudel, the motel manager who dislikes superheroes, and Jimmy, an embittered cop who can turn invisible for only a few seconds. As Brendan and Claudel start to connect, Brendan discovers a set-up that puts his future, freedom and good name in jeopardy.
