Plot: A mother has no interest in giving her daughter proper attention, so she hands over a comic book, hoping it will keep the child distracted. As she peruses the comic, the young girl discovers worlds of outrageous superheroes in all kinds of sleazy, violent situations. This one doesn’t have much of a narrative, just a collection of short superhero stories, one for each letter of the alphabet. This includes ninja pandas, heroes who love to fist their enemies, women who are naked for unknown reasons, numerous eyes exploded from their sockets, and more, with the most colorful, outlandish collection of superheroes ever assembled.
Entertainment Value: This is one of the more outlandish superhero movies out there, a series of vignettes that focus on sleaze, bloodshed, and over the top humor. I can’t argue that The League of Superheroes is a good movie in the traditional sense, but it is a fun ride packed with outrageous moments. The sense of humor is crude and often random, but even if the jokes don’t hit the mark for you, it is likely you’ll laugh a lot just from how ridiculous the experience is. The movie has a lightning fast pace as well, so the segments are brief and to the point. This is nice because if some of the scenes don’t entertain you, the next one is just around the corner. On the downside, I wish some were much longer, so it is a double edged sword. In the end, the movie is a trippy ride to say the least, so I think fans of b movies, offbeat humor, and outsider cinema will be interested, or those who just want an outlandish take on superheroes.
This one has a wealth of bare breasts, with some brief glimpses of naked asses and teases of full frontal exposure. I love how the movie even references how silly it is for the girls to be naked. No sex scenes, but a lot of topless moments and not brief ones either, so the nipples are freed in The League of Superheroes. The movie also has a metric ton of over the top violence and that includes some bloodshed, such as when one hero melts people’s eyes with beams from her nipples. Most of the gore is digital, sadly, but given the cheap, ridiculous nature of the material, low end CGI doesn’t stand out. This is especially true given how much of the movie involves poor green screen work, so the CGI just blends into that design approach. Some practical bloodshed emerges as well, so fans of totally bonkers, cartoon style gore should have fun here. The dialogue is silly, random, and beyond over the top. I had fun with most of the movie’s quirky sense of humor, though I can see why some would find it stupid or nonsensical. But if you appreciate wacky lines, you’ll have some laughs with this madness. As for craziness, this one is loaded with ludicrous moments and just total nonsense, though the silly tone does defuse the wackiness a little. There’s plenty of ridiculous elements however, so the movie earns some solid points.
Overall Insanity: 7/10
