Critic Reviews for Comic Book Villains
Once the ante is upped to violence, about halfway through, the movie becomes entirely unfunny and tiresome.
If there's one saving grace of Comic Book Villains (and it's a big one), it's the eclectic group of cool indie actors populating the farce.
Audience Reviews for Comic Book Villains
"Why would you want to leave town? Everything worth having's right here. Raymond's store, Dominoes pizza." Comic Book Villains is an original and dark movie. Although obviously steered toward the comic book fan; I was able to enjoy it and I've read only around a dozen or so comic books in my life. What makes this movie so likable for me is the cast; it's pretty amazing. Cary Elwes, Donal Logue, D.J. Qualls, Michael Rapaport, Danny Masterson, Eileen Brennan, and James Duvall(Yeah Frank from Donnie Darko). For an independent film that has absolutely no following this is an all-star cast. The plot is pretty straightforward. There are two rival comic book owners trying to get a huge and priceless collection of comic books from an old lady. To do so they try being nice to her for awhile; fixing stuff around the hous, bringing her groceries, but after awhile they see she's never going to sell. The last 30 minutes get a little too crazy for the movies own good, but I still see it as a diamond in the rough. Obviously, I'm in the minority of the few people that have seen it.
A pretty shitty movie that has a direct message to the stereotypical comic book fan. Silly music and an all around unfunny poor try at entertainment.
Excellent for the comic book fans. There are some fun moments in the flick and then it starts to get crazy and dark. I liked it and I thought casting was pretty good here.
