Storyline

In a world of super-villains, evil schemes and global domination, someone has to take out the trash. Welcome to the world of Henchmen, third class. When a fresh-faced new recruit joins the Union of Evil, he is assigned to a motley crew of blue-collar workers led by fallen henchmen Hank. But when The Kid accidentally steals the super villain's ultimate weapon, Hank must break his risk-nothing code to save the boy he's befriended, even if it means becoming the one thing he has always avoided being: a hero.

Trivia

The disclaimer for the Union of Evil reads WARNING: Contrary to the previous statement, the quote\unquote strings are no (sic) only attached, but are plentiful. Each and every citizen residing in Supervillain City must extend to the Union of Evil no less than ten (10) years of service. During which, the Union will not be held accountable to repercussions of revenge or monetary gain in the likely event of harm or the even likelier outcome that a painful death should befall upon you. Forms of such harm include, but are not limited to: superhero attacks, broken bones, loss of limbs, loss of broken bones found within limbs, constipation, results from prolonged exposure to radioactivity, shin splints, gluten allergies, forgetting how to ride a bicycle despite people constantly telling you it's not possible, paper cuts, a sudden interest or love of soft jazz, sore throat - you know what, it's essentially everything. Alright? Listen, if we say "jump" you say "how high." If we say "bye" you say "Felicia," if we say "be a potato" you say nothing because potatoes don't speak. Just do as you're told, don't sue the Union of Evil, and expect to die a horrible death. Cool. See more »

Great animation and voice-acting, everything else was plain awful
12 January 2019 | by yeolitSee all my reviews

A mediocre plot and script highlighted by several inconsistencies throughout the movie, some parts were poorly explained as well.

I feel as if the main power of the main character seems to be a rip-off of a certain Marvel character, and the villains as well. To be frank though , it is not about the powers that made this movie horrible, it was the presentation, and the characters. Especially the main character at the beginning, and yeah, the ending climax was so strange as well.

Anyways, if you exclude all the various parts of the movie, the voice acting is actually pretty spectecular, not to mention the animation, which is so smooth.

Overall, a movie with much wasted potential.
