After all, we girls love the brave guys, and that is exactly how superheroes are supposed to be- brave and strong. Let’s take a look at some of the best superhero flicks that Hollywood has produced for us.
1. Spider-Man 2
After the first movie was released and loved by the audience, Sam Raimi came up with the second part called Spider-Man 2. Where the first part was about a normal guy's transformation into a superhero, the second part describes the problems that a superhero has to face in his personal life and the sacrifices he has to make. Along with his struggle, Spider-man is also faced with the town's newest villain, Dr. Otto Octavius who has become crazy because of an experiment's disastrous consequences and also due to the death of his wife. Teamed up with a better storyline than the first movie, great actors and awesome visual effects, Spider-Man 2 is a movie worth watching.
What if you wake up in the morning and realize that you're a superhero? After a tragic accident, a security guard living in Philadelphia realizes that he has turned into a superhero. If you are digging for a suspense superhero flick that will keep you glued to your seat throughout the film, this one is for you! Teamed up with unpredictable drama, a dark plot and surprising twists, Unbreakable gives you a thrilling experience that most movies are unable to. Unbreakable is unforgettable!
3. The Dark Knight
Havoc breaks when an anarchist mastermind, who calls himself 'the Joker', creates a threat for the city. Left with no other option, Batman, the District Attorney, the Assistant D.A. and a Police Commissioner have to come together to stop this dangerous criminal. Right before the movie was released, I had mixed expectations about it. I knew that it is either going to be completely awesome or total trash. Thankfully my former expectation turned out to be true. The Dark Knight, in fact, was better than I expected. This is a movie that will stay on your mind for a very very long time.
4. Iron Man
If you're a fan of the comic series, I can assure you, the film will live up to your expectations. If you have no history of reading any of these comic series, I can promise you, this movie will be a perfect introduction. The story is about a rich industrialist who builds an armored suit and uses its technology to fight against evil. While a few complain that the movie is not for those with a short attention span, the movie has still managed to receive positive reviews. In spite of a couple of shortcomings, Iron Man succeeds far more than it fails. This movie will linger provocatively in your mind for quite sometime.
5. The Mask
If you were a fan of the cartoon series, you just can't miss this one. A simple guy is transformed into a crazy monster-looking superhero called, 'The Mask' whenever he wears this wooden mask that he finds. If you ask me, I feel that this movie has been one of Jim Carrey's best performances. After all, how many superheroes are funny? The Mask is hilarious, original, wacky and the visual effects are simply awesome. Don't miss Cameron Diaz's seductive dance.
6. The Incredible Hulk
All hell breaks loose when an experiment gone wrong forces a scientist to transform into a gigantic green-skinned monster each time his pulse-rate increases. At the same time, a malicious soldier takes advantage of the situation and creates an evil clone of the original. Following a superhero character from a comic series, this movie does full justice to the character. It is definitely a must-watch!
The story is about a demon, who is captured and raised by Nazis, grows up to save the world from paranormal threats. The reason why this movie stands out from the rest is because of its appealing aura and individualistic characters. Apart from the original script and the amazing visual effects, Hellboy is also teamed up with great wit and humor.
The movies cited above are carefully chosen for any superhero fan. I’m sure you’ll like them.
