For Hussein, a pizza delivery driver, the imbalance of the social system is thrown in his face wherever he turns. One day when his friend, Ali, shows him the contents of a lost purse, Hussein discovers a receipt of payment and cannot believe the large sum of money someone spent to purchase an expensive necklace. He knows that his pitiful salary will never be enough to afford such luxury. Hussein receives yet another blow when he and Ali are denied entry to an uptown jewelry store because of their appearance. His job allows him a full view of the contrast between rich and poor. He motorbikes every evening to neighborhoods he will never live in, for a closer look at what goes on behind closed doors. But one night, Hussein tastes the luxurious life, before his deep feelings of humiliation push him over the edge.

The stop-motion is extraordinary and their inventiveness boundless. Here the villain is cruel but has self-defeating flaws. Not all his henchmen are evil. And we have the boy-girl pair. The girl is brave, boy I like that! The adventure is masculine by comparison of Coraline, that was rather feminine. This kind of animation is so tedious, work-intensive, these guys must always have a darn good story to tell to make it. Plain delight all over.

James H (it) wrote: This was advertised as a fun movie where a teen gets special powers and shares it with his friends but it starts to become an overly dark and 'edgy' film where you start to hate everyone in the film. If you liked them, they probably died in the film. And then the movie loses ratings because of how it was promoted too.On top of that, these kids are not original in what they do with their powers. BEER PONG?! Seriously?! I guess that's the best the writers could come up with.
