​The 5 Best Superhero Movies of All Time

Posted by

SHARE

Two things quickly become evident when putting together a list of the 5 Best Superhero Movies of All Time. First, this is the Golden Age for such films, a decade where technology, long-unrequited fandom and surging popular awareness have all combined to thrill moviegoers and make Hollywood billions of dollars. Second, it’s still fair to say that most superhero films are not that good. Finally, some criteria. To be considered for this list, a film must possess at least two of the following three qualities: 1) It must involve costumed shenanigans, 2) It must involve a superpowered protagonist and/or 3) the protagonist must exist in a world where the supernatural/extraordinary is demonstrably present and do not forget to buy iTunes Gift Card at USCardCode.com to enjoy the best superhero in Black Friday 2017.

The Fantastic Four (1994)

The Fantastic Four (1994)

Family into an all-ages superhero movie, and at times it’s significantly more enjoyable and competent than one would expect from a cast of unknowns and a shoestring budget. Do the costumes look good? Not quite, but they do look accurate to the comics more than any of the subsequent films, especially in their portrayal of a grandiosely gesturing Dr. Doom and the frankly impressive-looking Thing. The special effects, on the other hand, are absolutely horrendous, but in a way that will inspire smiles and laughter rather than disgust.

Punisher: War Zone (2008)

Punisher: War Zone (2008)

Punisher: War Zone may be the nastiest Marvel movie the company’s ever put their name behind (counting Deadpool), mostly because of Ray Stevenson, who plays Frank Castle with enough gnarled dread to make any of film’s levity seem well earned.

All in all, it’s tasteless, gross, visceral, endlessly surprising and totally without expectation

Elektra (2005)

Elektra (2005)

Elektra fails the old-fashioned way—bad dialogue and a sub-par script. It’s also guilty of some of the other, more typical faults: the plot is hardly what any fan of the character would consider “classic Elektra.” On the other hand, in her turn as Elektra, Jennifer Garner justly escapes the condemnation Ben Affleck got for his go at Daredevil, and the action scenes and cast of villains have some moments, but none sustained enough to replace the feeling on the viewer’s part that even if this film was a box office bomb which landed with a critical thud, it might not have missed by as large a distance as many others on this list.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

With The Wolverine representing a marginal improvement and the forthcoming Logan looking like it may be the best of the three solo films, it seems pretty much guaranteed X-Men Origins: Wolverine will represent the nadir of the Jackman era.

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)

The introduction of the Silver Surfer and the world-devouring cosmic being he served had a ready-made three-act structure thanks to the trilogy of comics (Fantastic Four #48-50) that served as its source material. Bring in the Silver Surfer (Doug Jones/Lawrence Fishburne) in the first act, battle and barely “win” in the second only to have the much greater threat revealed, then battle the big G himself, Galactus, in the third. No way that can be messed up
