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.
It's lacking the sense of devotion that Super or any other super hero movie gives to the genre. Yeah marvel and DC back their movies with millions of dollars and A lister actors...but this movie could've been something like Watchmen. No one has real super powers. Hell, it could've succeeded without real costumes, but I just left this movie wanting more.
I did however, appreciate the young cast, whom many have actually seen real super hero movies like x-men
The movie has a fun premis of the superheroes losing their powers and having to function without them, but does not expand on how they were captured, nor does it really build any backstory for the "heroes" or the villian. I found it to be more of a watered down "SAW" type move, where regardless of what the good guys did, the civilians would die. No one was saved, and the ending was lackluster.
This movie was an enjoyable way to kill and hour and fifteen minutes, worth a few bucks, but I would not pay full price.
But it's Jason Trost's vision, not ours. And in terms of that vision, it could have used some more background. No one can relate to the characters because its built 100% off suspense. Which wasnt bad. thank god I rented it...
Four superheroes wake up in a unknown place greeted by a formal arch rival who wants them to compete for the lives of innocent only to see everyone suffer and die. Its very dark and there is not much action so don't expect epic fights.
