5. The Phantom (Billy Zane)
Identity: During the sixteenth century, a man named Christopher Walker was sailing on the seas of Africa with his father, when they fell prey to pirates' attack. The pirates slaughtered the ship's crew and blew up the ship. The only survivor was young Christopher. He was washed up onto the Bangallan Beach. He then took his father's skull and swore an oath upon it, "I swear to devote my life to the destruction of piracy, greed, cruelty and injustice! And my sons, and their sons, shall follow me!"
Powers: Agility, Animal Control, Attractive Male, Escape Artist, Insanely Rich, Intellect, Invisibility, Leadership, Marksmanship, Power Item, Stamina, Stealth, Super Strength, Swordsmanship, Tracking, Unarmed Combat, Weapon Master.
Plot: The 21st successor to the role of Bengalla's resident superhero must travel to New York to prevent a rich madman from obtaining three magic skulls that would give him the secret to ultimate power.
Movie Review: One of the biggest problems with costumed superheroes is those silly costumes, the venerable comic-book crime fighter known as the Phantom (Billy Zane) has a bigger problem than most. The movie is an action-adventure Frankenstein's monster, cobbled together from pieces of other much better films -- and then nobody remembered to give it a jolt of energy.
4. The Shadow (Alec Baldwin)
Identity: The Shadow is a super hero. Who like many super heroes fights crime in New York City. Behind the mask of The Shadow is a young wealthy man known as Lamont Cranston, also known as Kent Allard.
Powers: The 1994 movie/radio show version - The Shadow has the ability to cloud men's mind so that they cannot see him. This power does come at a cost! If a person shines a light on The Shadow, The Shadow's shadow becomes visible to everyone. In the movie he could also mind-control anyone with a weak mind and can perform telekinesis. The pulp version - The Shadow really could only use his .45 pistols as he was also very sneaky, but in this version The Shadow could never turn invisible.
Plot: Based on the 1930's pulp fiction and radio drama series, the film pits the hero against his arch enemy, Shiwan Khan, who plans to take over the world by holding a city ransom using an atom bomb. Using his powers of invisibility and "The power to cloud men's minds", the Shadow comes blazing to the city's rescue with explosive results.
Movie Review: A misfire meant to be a franchise. The film is based on an old radio show, and the concept is interesting enough, but this movie just drags. In it’s day the special effects were outstanding, but the story was shallow and weak. And now the special effects are super outdated.
3. Judge Dread (Sylvester Stallone)
Identity: Joseph Dredd is a one-man cop, jury and judge who gets set up in order to.. oh, like you can't figure it out.
Powers: Emotion Control, Gadgets, Implants, Intellect, Leadership, Marksmanship, Stamina, Stealth, Super Sight, Time Travel, Tracking, Unarmed Combat, Weapon Master
Plot: The Year is 2139. The Planet Earth has changed into a virtually uninhabitable place called the "Cursed Earth". All of the Earth's population have crowded into the cities across the planet, now known as "Mega Cities". The crimes in these "Mega cities" became so violent and so powerful, that the regular justice system was powerless to contain, then it collapsed completely. But, a new Justice System came from the ashes, They were 3 justice systems in 1 (Police, Jury and executioner), they were called "Judges". In Mega City 1 (formarly, New York), There was a Judge, named Joseph Dredd, who was the toughest and most stringent Judge in history. One day, he was charged with murder. He was tried and sentenced to life in prison because of it. Then, Dredd found out that it was in fact a person who shares his DNA. Former Judge Rico. Now, Dredd has to find out what Rico is planning to do, and to discover about his past.
Movie Review: The filmmakers did a lot of over-thinking while producing "Judge Dredd," because the view of the film is interesting, but the writing, the plot, the characters, and the one-liners are so bland that it just becomes tiresome and boring, even though it is only 96 minutes. Stallone usually chooses great films to star in, which make him look better than he actually is, but this film is a new low for his career. Honestly, if you are looking for anything remotely enjoyable, you will not find it here, unless you are drunk. "Judge Dredd" is one of the worst attempts at an Action/Sci-Fi that I have seen in a long time, it's awful!
2. Batman and Robin (George Clooney)
Identity/Powers: We all know Batman's identity, and powers (none). However in this movie he has some pretty amazing suits and gadgets (by amazing I mean SUPER STUPID)
Plot: I’m gonna make this really simple since, unfortunately, we have all seen this. Mr. Freeze, who wants to cover the world in ice, is going to team up with Ivey, who wants to cover the world with plants. Does anyone else see a problem here? But Batman, Robin, and Bat Girl are going to stop them with grappling hooks, rubber lips, magical shoes that can turn into both snowboards and ice-skates with a click of the heals.
Movie Review: Schumacher's intention appears to have been to make something so awful, so corny, so campy, so preposterously bad that audiences would simply laugh at it. Sorry. Bad is bad.
And the number one worst superhero movie ever made in my opinion is...
1. Steel (Shaquille O'Neal)
Identity: The most widely known Steel is a weapons engineer named John Henry Irons who became a super-hero to emulate Superman
Powers: Fighting crime as a member of Team Superman, Irons, Designs an advanced exo-skeleton, he wields a number of technological gadgets including a Kinetic Hammer.
Plot: However in the movie Thomas Pluck did a mighty fine job of totally butchering the character with the following plot line. John Henry Irons designs weapons for the military. When his project to create weapons that harmlessly neutralize soldiers is sabotaged, he leaves in disgust. When he sees gangs are using his weapons on the street, he uses his brains and his Uncle Joe's junkyard know-how to fight back, becoming a real man of "steel."
Movie Review: Well, everything about Steel was a disaster, from the casting of Shaq, to the story to the production to the casting of Shaq and especially that horrible looking costume that the miscasted Shaq had to wear. The $16 million dollar budget film grossed a little more than $1.6 million as critics unanimously butchered it and Shaq was rewarded with a Razzie nomination but thanks to Kevin Costner, Shaq didn’t win that year….but Shaq wasn’t use to winning much back then anyways.
