5 Great Superhero Movies From The 20th Century

oleh Lester Haritos (2020-01-19)


The genre of superhero movies has gotten considerable attention from Hollywood in the last decade or so, in large part because of their tremendous popularity with fans. Since movie-goers attend films in the first place to escape the tedium of day-to-day reality, why not go all out and save the world from super-criminals in those films? Whatever the exact appeal may be, there's no question that superhero movies are among the biggest draws to theaters these days, and that means you can expect a lot more of them in the near future. Here are some of the very best superhero movies from the 20th century.

Unbreakable (2000)

This is a superhero film without all the superpowers you might expect from individuals endowed with abilities far beyond the norm. Bruce Willis plays the part of a man who is seemingly unbreakable, the only survivor from a horrific train crash which killed all other passengers. When he meets up with Samuel L Jackson, whose character is Elijah Price, he is convinced slowly that he truly is invulnerable to destruction, and he takes on the role of silent crimefighter. This is a much more thoughtful superhero movie than the splashier films which were made in the two decades after its release. What's especially appealing about this film is the stark contrast between Bruce Willis' unbreakable character and Jackson's character, who has broken hundreds of bones in his life, and is seemingly prone to spontaneous shattering at any moment.

X-Men (2000)

The reason that X-Men is so important is because it almost single-handedly rescued superhero movies from the doldrums and vaulted them back into public prominence. It featured a stellar cast of Patrick Stewart, Ian McAllen, James Marsden, and Rebecca Romijn, as well as future superstar Hugh Jackman, who at the time was virtually unknown. Together, this cast works very well together to tell a solid story, which literally paved the way for all superhero movies that followed.

Superman 2 (1980)

One of the things that was very different about this superhero movie was that Christopher Reeve (Superman) was pitted against multiple antagonists, comprised of General Zod, Ursa, and Non. Part of the appeal of this movie was the wonderful interplay between Clark Kent and Lois Lane, which gave the movie a very relatable theme, in addition to Superman saving the world from alien invaders. There were also some very memorable physical action sequences which characterize this movie, highlighted by the spectacular battle between Superman and General Zod in Metropolis.

Batman returns (1992)

Considered a masterpiece by director Tim Burton, this film featured Michael Keaton as Batman and Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman, in addition to a charmingly grotesque Penguin played by Danny DeVito. All three of these actors delivered spectacular performances and were mesmerizing in every scene they appeared. Danny DeVito in particular has been singled out for providing a performance which is considered among the finest ever filmed of a comic book villain on the big screen.

The Rocketeer (1991)

This film was literally jam-packed with action and was actually a tribute to the serials of the 1930s, which were offered as pulp matinee features, although this film had an updated and modernistic perspective. This was a blockbuster family adventure directed by Steven Spielberg protege Joe Johnston. The time frame for 토렌트 the film was 1930s Hollywood, and the story line was adapted from a graphic novel. The plot centers on a film star known as Neville Sinclair, played by Timothy Dalton, who is bent upon securing a special rocket pack so he can sell it to the Nazis. Bill Campbell plays the part of Cliff Secord, who is the rocket man of the title, and must prevent Neville Sinclair from acquiring the rocket pack. Along the way, he also has to fight the Nazis, and save his girlfriend, played by Jennifer Connelly.
