All Superheroes Must Die (2013) Movie Review
Released : Jan. 4th, 2013
Reviewed : Feb. 2nd, 2013
Genre : Action
Story (from IMDB) :
Four Super Heroes find themselves abducted by their Arch Nemesis and are forced to compete in a series of challenges in order to save an abandoned town full of kidnapped innocent civilians.
I should of taken the hint from never of even hearing about this movie as the hint that nothing good would come of it.
A story isn’t really something that the movie ever really has going. What we get is a bad guy who traps 4 heroes who apparently have tried taking him down in the past. The villain then makes the heroes run threw fixed tests to save hostages and themselves. They try taking the hero success of a Kick Ass and it just doesn’t work. Although making the lead character resemble the lead character of Kick ass in and out and costume was a bad attempt. It’s just bad that they never really explain why anything happens in the movie. You get a few useless flashbacks of all the heroes hanging out and they then try to make the love connection between two of them. The flashbacks serve nothing to add any more of the story plus there really is no reason for them to be in black and white. It was a bad tactic to try and add.
With no story you would think the title “All Superheroes Must Die” would make it violent with some good action. Too bad there really isn’t any. You get to see some explosions where bodies magically disappear after the explosion and a few fist fights and gunshots. The fights are boring and badly done. One scene has the main hero fighting a guy in a bad UFC cage on a trampoline and a simple hit across the face with a pipe kills the guy. Not even a hard swing. There is no enjoyable to be found from it.
The actors are all unlikeable and by the end I was hoping all the heroes would be killed just so I didn’t have to hear them anymore. James Remar is the best role in the film as the villain. Even then I found his character to be horribly annoying. He tried making nothing but corny one liners that were neither creative or funny.
Overall there is nothing good in the movie and I just can’t recommend it to anyone.
