Trivia

In an early scene when the character Simon is lying on his bed, he looks at his phone and comments on an email he's received about a gig called "Live 10 Whelan's" that he might go to. This moment was unscripted and was actually just footage of Conor O'Toole out of character and looking at his phone while the shot was being prepared. See more »

Duplass meets Saban finally
8 April 2017 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Middle Finger is a unique mumble-core superhero movie finally the fusion of the Duplass Brothers and Saban we were waiting for! The film is very funny and very professionally made with a unique off beam tone to the performances reminiscent of movies like Eagle Vs Shark. The tone bounces around, in a way that's not jarring but instead refreshing. There is also a cool soundtrack of punky Irish indie rock. The movie is currently available to watch on Troma now so its worth singing up for a free trial!
