This movie was always going to be polarizing -- it is not a movie made for the masses or really the general viewing public writ large. It is obviously a love letter to the darker and more dystopian themes of exploitation films, 80s action films, and cult horror. There is also plenty of self awareness present here, which is subtle and well played.
All Superheroes Must Die is a fantastic little film that, in my opinion, is capably acted. Rickshaw is hilarious and competent. Charge is vulnerable yet determined. Shadow is particularly well acted.
The camera shots are inventive, the film pacing is quick and fairly exciting. Not much wasted time here -- much like another personal favourite, Showdown in Little Tokyo (though other than the running time, little else is similar).
This is also a deeply thematic film. Issues surrounding friendship and particularly "what it means to be heroic" are on display. Nonetheless, it's not very heavy handed, and most people will be more interested to see the creativity on display.
Not for conservatives or the rigid.
