Super-villains threaten to take over the world and the world's greatest teenage superhero is brought in to save the day in this offbeat satiric comedy. Even though United States operatives killed evil Nazi genius Dr. Heimlich Manure in an ambush years before, C.Y.A. topkick Col. Dirty Larry Calcan (Robert Logan) discovers the villain's underlings saved his brain, and now a reconstitution version of Manure is plotting a new bid for global domination. Calcan knows the fate of the world depends on putting his best man on the assignment of tracking and terminating the born-again Nazi, but Redboy -- aka Sean (Devon Roy-Brown) -- has decided to return to his former career of finishing Junior High. Calcan is persuasive, however, and soon the boy agent is out to save the free world, when he isn't busy doing homework or cleaning his room. Marcus van Bavel not only wrote and directed Redboy 13, he also handled the CinemaScope photography and even designed and executed the film's digital special effects.
