If you've ever seen classic Simpsons episode ‘Three Men And A Comic Book’, the only surprise in this micro-budget Scottish comedy about two geeks who stumble upon a rare first edition is how it squanders its strong premise.
As affectionate subculture satire, it’s undone by dredging up every cliché about awkward, movie-quoting fanboys.
As madcap adventure, it feels as though more care has been taken over the Electric Man comic’s backstory than the plot; even a deftly handled bike chase can’t compensate for the overall sluggishness.
More geek creak than geek chic.
