Logan (2017)

Logan is brutal, merciless and hellishly entertaining. This is the R-rated Wolverine movie that I have been waiting for! Hardcore fans of the Wolverine character will know that he’s ultra-violent and ruthless, with a killer instinct, which to my mind is something we haven’t seen fully realised in the child-friendly X-men films. Logan digs deeper into the character, […]

Super (2010)

No film has tackled superheroes as bluntly and as practically, as James Gunn’s Super. It’s nowhere near as entertaining as Kick-Ass, but I admire Gunn for creating a film that is in some respects, a middle finger to the audience. There’s really no point to it, but perhaps that’s the point… This dark comedy follows Frank D’Arbo […]

The suit allows its wearer to harness its shrinking powers, superhuman abilities, and to control and […]

Unlike the intensity of many other superhero films, Guardians of the Galaxy is a much more fun, comical and tongue-in-cheek. The film […]

In a departure from typical genre conventions, the Russo brothers’ film demands retribution for the superheroes’ collateral damage, which has contributed to much death and destruction around the world. Which side are you […]

Deadpool (2016)

Deadpool – a gleeful, self-referential character bathed in satire, gets his first taste of the big-screen. Well, sort of. Deadpool technically made his first appearance in the very forgettable, X-Men: Origins. But the film messed up the character so bad, that I’m literally not counting that version as Deadpool. I’m happy to report that director Tim Miller, […]
