Griff The Invisible Trailer: Kick-Ass, But British Australian, Charming And With A Lot More Heart

I enjoyed Kick-Ass. It was fundamentally silly, kind of shallow, but still, fun. And of course, Chloe Moretz saved the damn thing.

On the surface, Griff The Invisible looks way too similar. A young loner who fights crime by night but never fits in, who meets his dream girl, etc., etc. Except that from the trailer, it lacks the comic ridiculousness of Kick-Ass, and is far more serious in tone with a way more well-developed — and interesting — romantic angle. It comes from first-time director Leon Ford (who also wrote the script), and stars Ryan Kwanten (Jason Stackhouse in “True Blood”) as the titular Griff and relative newcomer Maeve Dermody as Melody, the love interest.

It looks pretty intriguing. Check out the trailer:
