The original comic book character lost his left eye during world war 1. In the movie, Captain Battle doesn't lose his eye at all, he merely wears his father's costume with an eye patch over his right eye. See more »
Captain Battle: Legacy War is one of those movies where you shouldn't expect all that much from in the first place, but watching this gave me the impression that other than using every cliché in the book with some blatant ripping off that everyone involved in this movie weren't even trying.
The best thing about the movie is the scene in the strip club which was amusing in a mild sense, it still didn't stop the scene from feeling irrelevant to what there is of the story. Which unfortunately is not very much at all complete with sluggish pacing, a lot of unimaginatively staged and poorly filmed action, very little happening with lots of irrelevant padding and a very "that's it?" ending. Captain Battle: Legacy War looks bad, with drab photography, very limited sets(back-lots and alleyways, even in scenes that needed something more than that), ridiculous-looking make-up(especially the red stuff put on the main villain's face), very rudimentary-level special effects and even the cheapest looking fancy-dress costumes look better than the costumes in this movie.
Unfortunately that's not even it for the flaws. There's also an awful script, students talking about embarrassing situations in school/university corridors are much less painful than listening to this horrendously cheesy and improvisatory-sounding dialogue. The movie's also ineptly directed and of the characters the heroes are bland clichés and the villains(especially the Nazi General) are even more clichéd and like very vulgarly broad foreign stereotypes that border on causing offence. As for the acting that is just as terrible, with a lead performance so wooden that wooden planks seemingly have more personality, Marlene Mc'Cohen and Jenny Allford's attractive looks are not enough to compensate for their very bland acting and the Nazi General is so overacted it's like he belongs in a completely different movie.
All in all, I have seen worse but even that is not enough to stop Captain Battle: Legacy War from being so shamelessly incompetent. 1/10 Bethany Cox
