I must admit Mega Time Squad wasn't as much fun the second time around and it definitely has a specific audience 'cos most of the family members I shared it with didn't appreciate it anywhere near as much as I did.
I know that people's opinions and reviews are all over the shop, but I really liked this!
The metaphorical examination of mental illness is far from subtle and at times Daniel Isn't Real tries too hard to be the new Jacob's Ladder, but I found the story to be highly compelling, the body horror aspects are handled really well (great to see lots of practical effects being utilised) and the acting by both Miles Robbins and Patrick Schwarzenegger is excellent.
