The worst superhero movies I've watched

by guisreis | created - 06 Dec 2013 | updated - 3 weeks ago | Public

I haven't seen Superbabies, Underdog, The Wild World of Batwoman, Lightspeed, Abar - the first black superman, Prey of the jaguar, The Adventures of the American Rabbit, L'uomo puma (Pumaman) and the movies of Indian Superman. They would probably be in this list. The same may be said about many superhero films starred by Mexican masked wrestlers.

In this list, there are films from USA, Canada, Turkey, UK, Japan, Hong Kong, Mexico, India, Italy, Brazil, and English-language German co-productions.

A large list of the best superhero films can be seen here: www.imdb.com/list/G48FZ6x48PQ

The last movies from this list were originally placed as the last ones in the list above, about the best superhero movies, as they also had the same rate (6) but I judged that their qualities were more important than their defects (they are the short "Superhero" and the movies placed after it). Though, as my list of the best became too big, I decided to put all the films with rate six in the end of this list of the worst.

An encopassing list of much more than 100 superhero films from best to worst can be made by adding the movies from the other list to the reverse of this list.

By the way, why the hell all superheroes are supposed to look like Iron Man nowadays?!

1. SpiderBabe (2003 Video)

R | 89 min | Adventure, Comedy, Sci-Fi

A socially awkward young woman gets bitten by a radioactive spider and becomes a crime-fighting superhero and tries to defeat a nefarious super villain while going after any man (or woman) she wants to bed down with.

Director: Johnny Crash | Stars: Erin Brown, Julian Wells, Darian Caine, Adam Cox

Votes: 801

There are some of the worst actors I have ever seen. Particularly horrible is Justin Wingenfeld; what the hell is his character, how old is he?! Lucinda Knoxx a.k.a. supervillain Femtilian is not much better. The story is a crap (and the parts they just copied from Spider-Man are a grotesque version), as the whole film is just an excuse for softcore. The web being expelled from that place is a ridiculous joke. Visual effects and fight coreographies are the worst you may imagine.

2. Captain Battle: Legacy War (2013)

90 min | Action, Sci-Fi, War

6. Three Giant Men (1973)

81 min | Action, Crime, Sci-Fi

Istanbul is being terrorized by a crime wave, and the police call in American superhero Captain America and Mexican wrestler Santo to put a stop to it.

Director: T. Fikret Uçak | Stars: Aytekin Akkaya, Deniz Erkanat, Yavuz Selekman, Tevfik Sen

Votes: 560

In this Turkish superhero film, "3 giant (or mighty) men", Spiderman is a dangerous criminal and leader of the spiders gang, while Captain America, his girlfriend Julia and Mexican El Santo go to Istambul to fight him and his minions. It is even worse than it seems!

7. You Don't Mess with the Zohan (2008)

PG-13 | 113 min | Comedy

54 Metascore

An Israeli Special Forces Soldier fakes his death so he can re-emerge in New York City as a hair stylist.

Director: Dennis Dugan | Stars: Adam Sandler, John Turturro, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Nick Swardson

Votes: 182,339 | Gross: $100.02M

The border that separates exaggerated action flicks (like "Mission: impossible"; or their spoofs, like "Austin Powers") and superhero films is very often blurred. I consider Zohan as a superhero (although it is not explained why the Jewish superhero who works as a special agent for Israeli Special Forces has superpowers; it seems that it's just an excess of testosterone) because he is able to stop bullets or to deviate himself from them, to swim faster than a jet ski, is much stronger than a bull or than three strong men, feels no pain, etc. After explaining why this may be considered as a superhero movie, it's time to say why this is one of the worst: besides being unfunny, it damages the possibility of discussing properly the violence in Middle East as, in spite of condemning the lack of interest for peace in both sides, it stereotypes arabs.

8. Kekkô Kamen (2004)

Review: Misogyny and sexual harassment are not funny at all. This Japanese manga-based comedy superhero film is very bad. Off course a surrealistic B-movie with poor visual effects may be good, and even the bizarre idea of a naked super heroine with an rabbit-eared red mask and scarf who fights with her beautiful body (and has a special strike in which she performs an epic jump, opens her legs and strangles the enemy between her thighs) and with a nunchaku (that she uses quite well) is not the problem (and could also be funny). The drawbacks are that acting and dialogs are awful and poor, and the story is ridiculous, campy and somewhat misogynous: evil and powerful TV journalism training school owners torture the students (who are all girls) in a childish but also sexual way, and the superheroine Kekkô Kamen saves the day fighting them in order to allow the victims to "accomplish their dreams". Villains are purposely the most ridiculous possible, and it was not funny but just one more reason to hate the film. Anyway, an important lesson everyone may learn by watching it is that sexual sublimation in real life is not a good motivation for creating sane movies. Sexual harassment is not a topic suitable for jokes. Close-ups on breasts and panties give the impression that teenagers who are just discovering sex are responsible for direction and cinematography. By its weirdness and theme, the film could be nothing else but Japanese.

9. Vampirella (1996 Video)

Story, acting, everything is ridiculous.

Fortunately it is an unaired TV pilot and it is a short film with just four minutes. Really bad! Ridiculous acting of Linda Harrison, bizarre costume and flight.

11. Santo vs. the Martian Invasion (1967)

92 min | Action, Drama, Fantasy

The masked wrestler battles Martians intent on taking over the Earth.

Director: Alfredo B. Crevenna | Stars: Santo, Wolf Ruvinskis, Ignacio Gómez, Beny Galán

Votes: 282

Review: The ridiculousness of this film is very funny, what automatically makes it less bad than other awful movies. Though, even when you make a film with bizarre costumes, a silly story, and bad acting, at least one expects it to have internal logical consistency.

This Mexican superhero film, though, contradicts itself too much seriously (for example, just a touch is enough to teletransport a human, but the Martians who wrestle against Santo cannot do it with him; besides that, the first alien to fight Santo has a disintegration ray but does not try to use it against him, although having the hero as a powerful opponent, and only uses it against people who do not offer any risk to them).

Even the (excessively long) fight scenes are very bad (asslock, headbutt on the sphincter and other ridiculous attacks, with no visually impressive jump) and boring.

12. The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D (2005)

PG | 93 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

38 Metascore

A young boy is recruited by his imaginary friends Sharkboy and Lavagirl to help save their planet.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Cayden Boyd, George Lopez, Kristin Davis, David Arquette

Votes: 28,957 | Gross: $39.18M

This is a film made for children, but I don't think that only movies for adults must have a minimum quality. This one is very bizarre and it is hard to believe that a film with so ridiculous visual effects was made so recently. The costumes are also awful. I have seen many very good children actors in the leading roles of good films; that is not the case here: these boys (including the "Twilight" one!) and girl are bad!

13. Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

R | 103 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

41 Metascore

Following Kick-Ass' heroics, other citizens are inspired to become masked crusaders. But Red Mist leads his own group of evil supervillains to get revenge, kill Kick-Ass and destroy everything he stands for.

Director: Jeff Wadlow | Stars: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jim Carrey

Votes: 245,477 | Gross: $28.80M

Review: This is a very bad film! Besides having all the drawbacks of its highly overrated prequel (it pretends to show common people becoming superheroes but indeed show hyper-violent and criminal child who fights better than Batman) it has much worse and absolutely unfunny jokes, a lot of prejudice (against Arabs, Asians, gays, women... and I am not talking about the racism of a character, like the M0therfvcker, but about the whole film), awful dialogs. I expected that at least Jim Carrey could save the day... but he did not. The plot itself is a disaster: Mindy cannot be a superhero because she promised to her father who made her a superhero that she would obey his friend who doesn't want her to be a superhero? That's nonsense. The way Ass- Kicker became a super villain was also so silly, so childish! As a matter of fact, super villains in this film are even worse than superheroes. Seeing the "evil army" reminded me the worse of comic book films from the 80's, without their qualities. All the parody of Watchmen (the picture on the wall, the outlawing of costumed vigilantes...) could be nice if the rest of the film were nice, but it isn't. I also think that, as the movie pretends that common young people are the heroes (15 years old Hit Girl shoots real guns!), they are really stimulating violence among teenagers in a very dangerous way. And what the hell was that absurd last quote?!

14. Dragonball Evolution (2009)

PG | 85 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy

45 Metascore

The young warrior Son Goku sets out on a quest, racing against time and the vengeful King Piccolo, to collect a set of seven magical orbs that will grant their wielder unlimited power.

I have not watched more than a small part of this film yet, but I am already able to say that it is terrible.

15. Captain America II: Death Too Soon (1979 TV Movie)

TV-PG | 83 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

The star spangled hero must battle a villain's plan to poison America with a chemical that horrifically accelerates the aging process.

Director: Ivan Nagy | Stars: Reb Brown, Connie Sellecca, Len Birman, Christopher Lee

Votes: 987

Review: The most ridiculous Captain America ever. This is an awful movie, much worse than its prequel "Captain America" from the same year, 1979. The action scenes are ridiculous, the soundtrack is horrible (perhaps the worst I have ever listened, together with Captain Battle's) and acting is as bad as in the previous Captain America TV film.

Besides that, the words "terrorism" and "revolution" are used as synonyms, and the hero attacks workers in the harbor because there is a chance that they are the ones who deal with illegal commodities (but off course it was possible that they were innocent!).

Everything is bad in "Captain America II: Death Too Soon", in spite (or not) of Christopher Lee (yes! he did not act badly) as the villain.

16. Black Mask (1996)

R | 99 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

A survivor of a supersoldier project must fight his former comrades as a masked hero.

Director: Daniel Lee | Stars: Jet Li, Ching Wan Lau, Karen Mok, Françoise Yip

Cheesy movie, with a simplistic bad story, childish excess of explosions, kitsch edition, unskilled acting, grotesque bad taste.

Review: The fight for the super semen: a kung fu vampire superhero trash B exploitation movie. I wrote this review avoiding spoilers as much as I thought possible, though I cannot consider it spoiler-free. To begin, horrible acting, ridiculous plot and amateur soundtrack are traits of this sexploitation B movie. There is a superpowerful guy (with superstrenght, superspeed, superjump... although not that powerful if compared to other superheroes), Billy, who fights against bad guys. As the superpowers may be transmitted by sexual intercourse, everybody want that semen (that is a very bizarre plot!). To worsen, the supposedly main character, portrayed by Shannon Tweed, is his stepmother but has a crush on him, and he on hers (in the climax, there will be a fog and everything will spin around them!?!). The long-haired superhero in tight jeans fight against the criminals who try to get his semen. The millionaire and handicapped mobster called Roach (indeed, a cockroach is his symbol) has many henchmen, but his main thugs are two dominatrix-style (un)dressed girls. One of them (dangerous master artist Karen, portrayed by Lara Daans) opens the movie with a remarkable "exotic dance" show. Another scene to be highlighted, in this case because it is dire (a B trash kung fu film style scene), is the fight inside the cage between Billy and the two thugs. In the end, when the movie gets even campier, new superpowers arise, such as Electra rays, sharp claws, vampire fangs and hypnotic spittle (everything very bizarre!). To resume: What the hell is the fight between Billy and the wheelchair flamethrower supervillain Roach?! WTF are the two last scenes?!!!! OK, that is enough, I cannot tell much more without telling the story (story?).

It is incredible how one could imagine a quite nice movie based in the very same idea and characters (but the superpowers would need to be explained, what they were not), but this is horrible! Incredibly bad actors and director (as the sequel is much less bad and has a different director, I suppose it was mainly his fault)! Everything is badly done.

Director: Jeremy M. Inman | Stars: Johnny Rey Diaz, Christina Licciardi, Lindsay Sawyer, Talia A Davis

Votes: 914

The sequel of Avengers Grimm 1 and 2 follows the very same idea of the previous movies: a mashup of fairytale characters in superhero blockbusters-inspired assembly. While the previous "Avengers" were the pricesses againt evil, in this film the supervillains themselves compose a "Squad". It is better than horrible first movie but much worse than Avengers Grimm 2. Characters are too different from their sources, and the idea of making them as superheroes or supervillains would only work if they were at list a little true to original fairytales. Besides that, costumes and stage should be much better - they look like theater (in the bad sense; off course what works in theater not necessarily works in motion picture). The story is a mess and there is almost no interesting moment.

24. The Three Fantastic Supermen (1967)

Votes: 3,081

An uncharismatic teacher, who uses to dress like a ridiculous TV superhero when he is alone at home, suddenly gets superpowers to become the real Zebraman and fight depraved aliens who like to use crab masks and have green blood (they seem to be specialized in commiting sexual violence, particulaly against girls in school uniform). That is trash. A compulsory question: what the hell was the zebra nurse?!!!

26. Catwoman (2004)

It's unanimously the worst Batman movie ever.

Off course you can see the impact of a low budget (over the visual effects, for example), but it is not a problem as this is a fan film (although it does not allow them not to put the Superman symbol straight over the uniform!). Acting is generally bad (the thin Superman is OK, but the other characters, especially Lois Lane, are bad). The story is a mess: why the hell is Green Arrow (or another bowman, we cannot know) attacking Lois Lane? Why criminals save Superman after attackig him? Why Gotham City local hero is not characterized as Batman? What made Superman become evil and why he suddenly became good again? I simply could not understand the screenplay.

In spite of showing Diana in the Paradise Island in the beginning of the film, this is deffinitely not a Wonder Woman movie! This is a blond Wonder Woman wearing a completely different costume and with no superpower (except for precise javeling throwing, perhaps): she is just clever and an acrobatic martial artist. I read some reviews saying that even in the comics Wonder Woman had lost her powers those years, and that may explain part of the changes. Anyway, they did not work, and neither did the story.

Review: That is the worst of the 4 "Fantastic Four" movies, including the one from the 90's. It could be called "Teen Not Fantastic Four". Unconvincing pseudo-science, uncharismatic actors, boring story... In my opinion, the CGI-made Thing is the worst in all live action "Fantastic 4" movies (he looks like an ent from Tolkien's Middle Earth), including the first one, from the 90's, which is always considered (exaggeratedly) as one of the worst superhero movies ever made. Indeed, if you wanna know, in spite of its much higher budget, this movie is worse than that one, which has been made with no real intention to be released. It was also ridiculous to put Susan Storm as a Kosovar adopted girl just to justify that she is the sister of a black Johnny Storm. Besides that, is it serious that nobody talked about Victor Von Doom since the accident until he reappeared?!

Review: Campy superheroes show tongues, laser rays, clumsy martial arts and rock n' roll. Very campy film by Hanna-Barbera (but it's live action) that reminds me a bit "Superfriends" TV animated series. Though, it's live action and the superheroes are the members of the Kiss band! Their superpowers come from four magical talismans protected by a force field. Star Child can shoot a laser from the star that comes out of his right eye and also uses it for controlling minds and for activating his superhuman hearing ability. The Demon has superstrength and may breath fire (besides having a thunder voice, a mighty roar... and a long tongue). Space Ace shoots laser rays from both hands (although strangely never uses this power while fighting) and teleports himself and his partners by making the hitchhiking gesture with his thumb. Catman was supposed to have superhuman agility... but all the four seem to have the same superhuman agility! Well, at least he is the responsible for the jokes only Ace laughs at. They all also have a superjump, may slow down the fall, have (clumsy) martial art techniques... and fly, off course. In the movie, the enemy is is a mad scientist (why not?) who converts people into androids. The rockstar superheroes must save the day by fighting inside an amusement park. Everyhing with bad acting and poor visual effects. Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss all hate the movie. Well, it's somewhat funny, but really not nice at all.

This film has many problems (SPOILER ALERT). To begin, it looks like videogame, both in its vusual animation choices (I hated the way some villains and other characters were presented as a game menu) and in its flat story. Besides that, there was a different path from good "Gotham by Gaslight", which was an alternative version of classic characters as if they existed in Victorian England: in "Batman Ninja", there is a time trip to feudal Japan. There is no problem on this, and it could have worked, but, then, why the hell there are characters that are shown as if they were Japanese, like Bane?! I also considered it a quite stupid idea to put Poison Ivy against the Penguin and Gorilla Grodd against Two-Faces in super sentai mecha fights (even worse is the giant mech composed by five batvillains' mechas under the Joker's control fighting the giant samurai made of an army of monkeys afterwards transformed in a giant Batman by the inclusion of hundreds os bats!?!). The sountrack has many particularly awful moments too.
