A random hero. An anonymous hero who turns into a superhero thanks to the boost of the media, which are trying to find out about his true identity. A common man driven by the love for his brother and a woman. While in his first film Díaz answered the question of how to make Latin American martial arts, now Mirageman takes one step forward by making real the possibility of a Third World masked avenger. The film includes some winks at Batman but installs an opposite double, a poor hero who moves around using public transportation and has no high-tech weapon other than the Internet and the help of someone as common as him: Pseudo Robin –probably the best sidekick in film history. To Kiltro’s mixture of punches, comedy, melodrama, and pop culture, Díaz now adds more density and introspection, addressing contingent social issues without ever losing sight of the choreographic and entertainment-based aspect of the genre, establishing a dialogue between martial arts and exploitation that will mark his following films while turning this one into a cult movie.
