Staring: Rideaux Baldwin, William Bumiller

You probably won’t hear me say this again for a very long time, but there’s a part of me that wishes Glenn Klinker had simply waited for some Hollywood interest in his script before going off and making it independently. It’s a tremendous idea that probably would’ve been turned into a decent theatrical film that would have at least given Klinker a nice paycheck. As it stands, Dark Justice is a cute movie with a great idea behind it that just didn’t turn out as well as it could.

On the outside, the Yup Yup Man appears to be just another delusional bum. He wanders through his conversations, saying ‘yup yup’ every few words, thus earning himself his nickname. He spends his time hanging out at a local tavern, where the bartender Jack has taken quite the shining to him. He also occasionally visits the beautiful Jillian, a nice woman who has taken an interest in him. The reason they like him is not because he’s a charity case. The Yup Yup Man, despite his flaws, is an upstanding citizen who truly has a heart.

Through reading the crime fighting adventures of his favorite superhero in the comic book Dark Justice, Yup Yup Man comes up with an idea to be an actual caped crusader. Jack even gives him some advice along the way, believing the situation to be just a big joke. But the Yup Yup Man is serious. He gets himself a costume, a mask, and everything you’d expect. His crime fighting skills, however, are different from most. He kills those committing crimes instead of turning them into the police. This creates a huge conflict between Yup Yup and the bartender, along with many police officers wanting to take him in.

Dark Justice’s budget quickly reveals itself to be the film’s biggest problem. As a result of the budget, and bad actor choices, everything in the second and third act not related to crime fighting pretty much falls flat. There’s no emotion to be seen, and the big villain was poorly miscast, leaving things even more vacant.

Also known under the appropriate, but unmarketable, title of Yup Yup Man.

DVD: Barebones.
