Melvin, a reluctant hero who is far from super, has been suppressing his telekinetic powers for years with booze, drugs, and women.

After a brush with death, Melvin decides to use his powers for good and clean up the streets of New Orleans with the help of his best friend/definitely-not-a-sidekick, Lucille. For a man who can do the impossible, it might be a fight even he can’t win.American Hero featuring Stephen Dorff and Eddie Griffin is streaming with subscription on Prime Video, streaming on Epix, free on Sony Crackle, and 10 others. It's an action & adventure and comedy movie with a less than average IMDb audience rating of 4.9 (3,783 votes) and was not well received by critics.
