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.

If you were to walk into a movie 15 minutes late, then, after about 5 minutes of watching it, you suddenly realized that you were in the wrong auditorium, left immediately never knowing what you actually saw would be an apt description for All Superheroes Must Die. It has no plausible beginning, a mishmash of a middle, and no sensible ending. Is the movie meant to be a metaphor? Is it a superheroe's nightmare? What powers did these so-called superheroes once have? How were they overcome to lose them? Occasional flashbacks in black & white only add to the confusion and don't really clarify anything. How did the villain become so deadly? Where are the rest of the people in the city which, from a map, appears to be quite large? Where are the police or firemen? Why am I asking these silly questions - after all it's only a movie?! As the film begins, our 4 "superheroes" awaken to find that they have been injected in their wrist with something; they shortly find that they are now powerless (but can certainly swear); are locked in a deadly game with James Remar who has strategically placed old TV sets all around the city through which he can communicate and leer; unless thwarted in time (our heroes always have only 90 seconds) people will be blown up and/or one of them will die. Get the picture? - No, don't! The only "superhero" is apparently the villain who accomplishes all with no help from anyone else, possesses sophisticated technology by 1970s standards, and resides in what looks like a messy trailer. Who will prevail? Who will fail? Will there be a sequel? Who cares?!

I love the stakes that are put into this movie. Everything just seems so... real and like there will never be another chance. The twist toward the end is also groundbreaking. I would recommend this movie to anyone who either loves superhero movies, or Watchmen fans.

I truly enjoyed this little gem. It's amazing what can be done with so little money. I enjoyed the story and the tone. Does anybody really think the script for X-Men: First Class was anything but horrible. The X Men's crappy script and mediocre acting is covered up by millions of dollars of CGI. This is true for so many of the new action films out there. ASMD was excellent for what they had to work with and I thought Jason Trost as the hero and James Remar as the the villain were excellent. Despite all the single stars I would suggest that individuals take a peek at this excellent little film. Is it an Oscar nominee? Certainly not but it is a fun little movie. We need to applaud these indie directors to make sure they can keep making movies. Especially at a time when more and more big releases are absolute drivel with CGI and explosions added.

I went into this without many expectations. I was hoping that I would get an interesting, dark superhero story, but that was about it. It's not the bad effects or the budget that bothered me, I can deal with that. It's just thatthese characters weren't very interesting, there were several annoying plot-holes, and some predictable directions taken in the story. It feels like the movie is trying to tell me something, but it's got so many weird contradictions that I'm not sure what that "something" is. The sequel's coming out soon, and I'm hoping that I'll enjoy it more than the first one, because I like seeing smaller-scale superhero movies.

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.
