Accidental Heroes: An Action-Packed Emotional Drama From The Billion Copy Bestseller
About this deal
Gollum in The Lord of the Rings, tries to seize the one Ring from Frodo as the later succumbs to its influence, now unwilling to destroy it. He claims the ring, hops with joy... and falls into the chasm of Mount Doom, destroying the ring and Sauron in the process, and in doing so, saving Middle Earth. That Gollum may accidently save the world is foreshadowed earlier when Gandalf posits that fate may yet have a use for him, and that Bilbo's mercy in not killing him when he had the chance may yet be what saves the world. Frodo forgives Gollum after his death. Most of the Wario Land games can be summed up as " Wario goes out to steal treasure, and defeats a villain who's worse than he is." In Mercy Watson Fights Crime, Mercy hears the noise of a burglar stealing the toaster and thinks someone is making toast, leading her downstairs. A series of events leads to her sitting on top of the guy while the police get there, but Mercy is again utterly oblivious.
Reading a Danielle Steel after a long time, many years in fact, and it was like coming home. I chose this book as I wanted to feel the air rushing through me as the flight and its passengers faced a life and death situation.In True Lies while fighting Aziz's forces on the uninhabited island on the Florida Keys, Harry, a government super spy, gets captured by a muscular goon, as another half dozen goons rush him, Harry yells at Hellen, his wife, to shoot. Not knowing how to handle a gun, the Mac-10 she was holding falls out her hands, and as it bounces down a flight of stairs, the MaC-10 takes out all the goons. Once the magazine is empty, she give Harry a surprised thumbs up. The satire is considerable - very subtle in places and not so in others. It's social commentary on the public adulation of heroes. It's the stereotyping of people who might be able to be heroes. But, mostly, it's about the TV news media and its piranha-esque drive for sensationalist news. And the film has some other aspects that are treated lightly, as if to be OK. Stealing, lying and deceit top the list.
Only in It for the Money: Bernie only wants to prove that he saved the passengers because of the million dollar reward. Secret of Mana: The Boy just wanted to cut some tall grass...though you do find out later that he comes from a heroic lineage. He Was a Quiet Man: Bob Maconel was planning on Going Postal in his office building, but a similarly withdrawn co-worker beats him to it by roughly a minute. Bob shoots the co-worker with the gun he was carrying at that moment, and is suddenly hailed by his company and the media as a hero.
In Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington descend into Hell only to rescue the Boss, who has been kidnapped by Satan. In doing so, they end up inadvertently foiling Satan's plan to invade and conquer Heaven. HERO is a funny, smart, vastly underrated screwball comedy about mistaken identity, and what exactly it is that constitutes "heroism".
