Rating: PG-13 Stars: Ryan Kwanten, Maeve Darmody, Patrick Brammall, Toby Schmitz, David Webb Writer: Leon Ford Director: Leon Ford Distributor: Indomina Releasing Release Date (U.S.): August 19, 2011 GRIFF THE INVISIBLE is liable to remind people of SUPER, KICK-ASS, SPECIAL, et al, in that it’s about a fellow in a superhero costume who wants to fight crime, but lacks superpowers. The movie is set in Australia and has two major twists. One, a la SPECIAL, is that Griff (Ryan Kwanten) believes he does have superpowers.
