Synopsis:
"Code 8" is set in a world where 4% of the population is born with varying supernatural abilities, but instead of being billionaires or superheroes, they face discrimination and live in poverty, often resorting to crime. Connor Reed (Robbie Amell), a power-enabled young man, is struggling to pay for his ailing mother's health treatment. Fighting to earn enough money as a day laborer, Connor is lured into a lucrative criminal world by Garrett (Stephen Amell) who works for Lincoln City's reigning drug lord. Garrett helps Connor sharpen his powers in order to execute a series of crimes while a militarized police unit hunts them down.

The Unsung Fight Back - Code 8 review by AA

Spoiler Alert
24/04/2020

Interesting about abut a group of people in LA who having supernatural powers are forced to live in poverty and have to revert to crime to survive.   Avoiding a militarised police force and greed and corruption with the minority sext the story centres around Connor trying to find the money to help his mother fight her cancer and at the same support himself.  How he goes about it is the essence of the film.  Watchable in these times of seclusion from COVID19!

Well-realised sci-fi heist actioner - Code 8 review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
10/05/2020

In this defiantly anti-superhero movie, people with superhuman powers are the underclass, policed into impotence by advanced drones and robocops. Our hero Connor, a Class 5 Electric, rebels and joins a power-abled heist team to make money for an operation to save his ailing mom. Detective Park is on his case. It’s a fascinating ride to a terrific electronic score as we discover what powers each character has and watch them put them to use when thieves fall out.
