They Call Me Jeeg Robot ★★★½

An emotionally distant thief is pushed by his anime obsessed neighbor to become a hero after he gains super strength, and must fight a glitzy gangster who briefly had his 15 minutes of fame on Italian TV and wants that back. American superhero genre filmmakers should take cues, this is how you make a turnaround from scumbag to hero. Expect grisly humor and good gore effects. Would make a good double feature with Super and/or Kick-Ass.
