Top 20 Super Hero Movies.
First a Disclaimer. I may be one of the few that have not seen Marvels’ The Avengers so that it is why it is not on my list. As soon as I see it I am sure it would be on there! Also, the Dark Knight Rises comes out in two days and I am sure that would be on my list too!
20. Batman & Robin
I know it is terrible right? But to me it is still a fun and corny movie.
19. X-Men 3: The Last Stand
Another movie that I don’t think it deserves the bad rap it gets.
I was never in to Marvel Comics or its Characters that much but I have really enjoyed the movies based on their characters.
17. GI Joe: Rise of Cobra
The epitome of a fun over -the-top movie.
16. X-Men 2
I solid sequel to the first movie.
15. X-Men: First Class
A very good prequel to the franchise. Very good story.
14. Green Lantern
I really enjoy this one and think it got a bad rap. The scenes set out in space are the best.
13. The Mask of Zorro
One of the first superheroes. Very good story with Sir Anthony Hopkins in a delightfully engaging and fun role.
12. Batman Forever
Another over the top movie but I really like the addition of Robin and how he plays into this story.
A bit uneven in places. It gets too serious in the later half of the movie but still enjoyable. I really enjoy Will Smith.
10. Spider-Man 2
I am not always keen on origin stories so that is why I like Spider-Man 2. Sorry, haven’t seen the reboot yet.
A very different superhero movie!
8. Batman (1989)
Tim Burton’s take on the Caped Crusader is like a graphic novel come to life.
Perfect mixture of science-fiction and fantasy.
6. Superman Returns
Great Special effects! Superman saving the jumbo jet is worth the price of admission.
5. Superman: The Movie
Gets bogged down in the origin story but once it is rolling it still holds up very well today.
4. The Dark Knight
Heath Ledger’s take on the Joker will be the standard by which all villains and usage of the Joker will be measured.
3. Batman Begins
I did actually like this one better than the Dark Knight. I think the story is a little tighter in this movie and not as dark.
2. Iron Man
Didn’t know much about him until the movie. Robert Downey Jr. is spectacular both as Tony Stark and Iron Man.
1. Superman II
With his origin story out of the way Superman gets down to a fun, sometimes corny, action adventure movie with a great villain and special effects that still hold up well today. The best Superman and superhero story.
