Superhero films have been popular for years since superman came out. They have brought us so many fantastic hero images that we could never forget them just because their bravery, super powder and holly spirit have impressed us so deeply. This time on my blog, I have list the most shocking superhero films. Will you agree with me, just keeping checking!
No.1 Superman: The Movie
Richard Donner’s take on Superman set the standard by which all superhero movies will be judged. In short, Reeve is Superman to many people on the planet, and his ability to completely own a decades-old character makes the film work.
Couple Reeve’s spot-on performance with a balanced, delicately-paced script, an outstanding performance matched with the well-designed superhero costume by Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor, and one of the most memorable endings in cinema, and you have the best superhero film ever made.
No.2 Batman Begins
Widely considered one of the greatest comic films of all time, Batman Begins does everything right and gives Batman fans the film they have always demanded. The film presents an exceptionally competent storyline that succeeds in explaining and justifying everything the superhero is able to achieve, something rarely seen even in the comics.
No.3 Spider-Man 2
This 2004 sequel brought back all the main players – director Sam Raimi and stars Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, Rosemary Harris, J.K. Simmons. Spider-Man 2 elevated the series to just about everything that comic fans love about the character.
No.4 X2: X-Men United
2003′s superior sequel to X-Men starts out with a BAMF! as teleporting mutant Nightcrawler (Alan Cumming) goes on a one-man ass-kicking rampage in the White House. Loosely based on the 1982 X-Men graphic novel God Loves, Man Kills, X2 does a great job of presenting the intolerance of non-mutants towards the X-Men and their fellow mutants, remaining realistic and entertaining.
No.5 The Incredibles
A pitch perfect action-adventure, The Incredibles has something for all ages to enjoy. Written and directed by Brad Bird (The Iron Giant), Incredibles combines elements from spy, superhero, family drama and action flicks, deftly displaying suspense, action, family drama and a mid-life crisis. There’s plenty of humor and references for a sci-fi or comic book fan to geek out about, while younger kids get a kick out of super-kids Dash and Violet taking on the bad guys.
No.6 10. Unbreakable
Of the films included on this list, M. Night Shyamalan‘s Unbreakable may be one of the strangest, since it explores the realm of superheroes to entirely different effect than such projects as Spider-Man or X-Men – namely, it makes being a superhero a believable possibility. Bruce Willis, reuniting with his Sixth Sense director for the second time, plays a former football star who mysteriously survives a catastrophic train wreck; when he encounters Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), an oddball comic collector, he discovers that there may be more afoot than mere good luck. Rather, he may in fact be a real, true-blue superhero.
Loosely based on the Marvel comic book character, Blade is a fun combination of several genres – superhero, action, horror, and martial arts flicks. Wesley Snipes stars as the half-human, half-vampire Blade, who possesses many of the strengths of vampires without as many of the weaknesses (he can go out in daylight, which gives him the nickname “Daywalker,” and he takes a special injection that curbs his appetite for blood). Blade takes out vampire foes in some awesome action sequences using weaponry developed by his friend Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), including a silver samurai sword and guns that fire silver bullets. Stephen Dorff plays a very memorable evil vampire named Deacon Frost, who proves a foe to both Blade and the old-school “pure-blood” vampires, including Dragonetti (creepily played by Udo Kier).
