Poor acting and stupid story plot in this movie.
Luis A. Cruz
I wasted my money for nothing... The acting was terrible, the plot made no sense and the ending was...oh there was no ending, the movie it just stopped!

Probably the third or forth worst film I have ever seen.

The concept of this film feels like an X-men versus Arcade in Murderworld story. The heroes wake up trapped in a deadly game where they have to participate in several challenges set up by the villain. If they win, they can go free. If they lose or don't play at all, everyone dies. Personally, I'm not a fan of these types of stories, but this movie doesn't have the kids gloves approach that X-men comics used to have.

I read the reviews before I watched this movie, which lowered my expectations. That definitely impacted my viewing experience for the better. The average score of 2.5 stars is about right for this film. Some things are done really well, but other parts fall flat. I liked the costumes, and the actions by the characters made sense for the most part. On the other hand, there are some significant plot holes, yet they need to be overlooked or else there is no movie. The film is about 15-20 minutes too short, which could have been filled by a flashback that showed the heroes using their powers or working as a team or explain what they had done to the villain that spurred his revenge plot.

Could this have been better? Sure, but you have to consider that this is a low budget film when watching it. Just remind yourself that you are watching an up-and-comer's early work, and then you can enjoy it for what it is.

I am one who is a sucker for all things superhero but this movie was just bad in many ways. Costumes, plot, characters, acting, sets, etc. The female "hero" was the worst actor of all.

This film has one of the most original plots I've seen in a long time, however this film was panned by critics. After seeing All Superheroes Must Die, I really can't understand why it has one of the lowest IMDB ratings I've ever seen. It's nowhere near as good as it could have been, but it's certainly not as bad as most critics are making it out to be. Four superheroes wake up in an abandon town with their powers gone. Near them are TV sets, which explain that they have been captured by their arch-enemy, Rickshaw, and will be forced to play a game, in order to save the towns residence. The story is extremely original, but what I liked most about it was that the characters weren't over the top. The "superheroes" are actually normal twenty-somethings, who got powers from an object that fell from the sky. They are drinking, swearing, seemingly normal people, who were put into this impossible situation by a madman. Rickshaw is played by veteran character actor, James Remar, who was terrific. Parts of the film are slow and when things do slow down, Rickshaw, as clever as he is funny, is there to move things along. Jason Trost is the lead superhero, Charge, and he did a lot more than star in this thing, he wrote, produced, and directed it, which is a hard thing to do, especially for someone who doesn't have a lot of experience. The one knock I have against this film is that due to their small budget and independent status, much of the action scenes were very short. The challenges were clever, but by the time you understood what was going to happen, it was over. The film itself is very short, which doesn't allow them to go deeply into anything and that's what I think most people disliked about the film. It's not that this was a bad movie, it's that it really could have been a whole lot more.

I love superhero movies. I love indie films. That was enough for me to want to see this. It drew me in, kept me interested and I liked the characters. By the end of the movie, I knew I had seen an original, cool story. What impressed me further were the credits; the two main male characters also wrote the movie. The credits are brief and peppered with the writers' family members indicating a low budget project, yet the film is of very high quality with great camera shots. For what they were working with, this movie is brilliant!

The background of the disc case shows HIGH scrapers... no two-storey buildings in this, and
there are NO super-powers. Luckily, the villian WAS a great BAD guy... so was the rest of
the movie. The writing, etcetera. the sFX were okay, mainly because there wasn't any. Luckily,
I only paid $10 for my Blu-Ray.

I wanted to give this movie a 5 out of 5 but there were some weak areas. Most people will buy this movie because they are fans of the Trost brothers and as such, will be familiar with their works. If you are not a fan and are not familiar with their previous works, then it is very likely you will hate this movie. This movie takes an unconventional route of story telling that appeals to fans of the indie genre. It does not spoon feed you information and forces the viewer to wait to get the full story. The acting is one of its weak-points, it is not bad acting, but it does feel somewhat plastic in its presentation. As a fan, it is exciting to see the cast grow and learn but if viewing it from the outside, it would be understandable if people were not impressed. I think the truly remarkable part of this movie is the long-lasting effect it had on me. Like a fine wine or cheese or 40 oz, my enjoyment of the movie came after fully processing it. So, bottom line: if you're a fan of indie movies or a fan of the Trost brothers, give the movie a chance and you may find a new love in your life but if you're looking for conventional Hollywood story telling, steer clear. A good litmus test is to watch The FP [Blu-ray] and if you enjoy that; you'll probably enjoy All Superheroes Must Die.
