Rupert Patterson Wants to Be a Superhero

1997 NR

A 10-year-old boy with a huge imagination, Rupert Patterson (Sean Campbell) spends his days building his future career as a bona fide superhero. Rupert's fantasy becomes a likely reality when a bank robber shows up in his hometown, and it's up to Rupert to save his community. This heartwarming film directed by Brooks Campbell relies more on charming acting and a message of heroism rather than special effects to create a classic family favorite.
