Jeff Chan’s Code 8 began life as a short movie, and having watched most of it, it’s REALLY faithful to the trailer for the movie.
For comparison’s sake, here’s the original short film…
And my reaction to the recently released trailer.
And let’s be honest, Code 8 is essentially the X-Men, and that’s okay because there’s little original under the sun: It’s all about the execution. Make it an interesting story, then similarities to other more famous material doesn’t matter (as much).
