"Bolder than Kick-Ass, smarter than The Watchmen, it's a graphic novel, it's a film, it's a hit; I'm talking about Sparks."

" I really hope they continue with this because the possibilities are endless. I would welcome a second and even third film with open arms."

"Surprisingly good, the film Sparks offers crime drama mixed with comedy and a superhero script. The special effects are good and do the job nicely when needed. They bring back a bit of nostalgia as well presenting their film like the crime noir stories of old similar to “The Maltese Falcon”, “Dick Tracy” and “Chinatown”.
John Delia - Acedmagazine.com
"Sparks is a phenomenal new period superhero movie co-directed by Christopher Folino and Todd Burrows. Sparks is an extremely ambitious period film that plays like a cross between Double Indemnity and Watchmen."

"Just when you think you’ve seen it all, along comes a film like ‘Sparks’ to prove you wrong. Delivering a first rate, fist pounding action thriller that proves beyond a doubt that there’s still a whole lot of life left in the world of the pulp heroes and their twenty first century descendants. Long live the Golden Age"

"Sparks can not be compared to other super-films because It's To Damn Good! Take the badassness of Sin City,the coolness of Spider-Man Noir, the grit of Watchmen,sprinkle in the powers of the X-Men and you're still only half way to Sparks."

"You'll definitely be engaged with the multiple-plot twists, if not the slam-bang fighting action (Ashley Bell's character should have her OWN movie) - for a film without the highest budget available, "Sparks" still delivers the goods"
