Most Underrated Comic Book Movies

Alexandr
Let's talk about those comic book films which were completely overlooked and underrated!

The Top TenXW

1Watchmen

It would have been a box-office Smash if it came out today, how on Earth did Jackie Earle Haley not even get nominated for an Academy Award for his role of Rorschach, but Oh My God that performance gave me chills!

Love this movie. Well acted, written, shot, directed and with heavy thematic substance to boot as well. It's the sort of movie that isn't made much these days, and we're all the poorer for it. Forget the MCU and The Dark Knight. THIS is the best superhero film of all time. - Mrveteran

Everything is perfect from start to end better than that hulk

2Hulk

I think this film was real underrated masterpiece. Eric Bana and Jennifer Connelly did a very good job. The effects looked stunning, the storyline included many dramatic but very nice moments - Alexandr

By far the best hulk! Why is this so hated? This movie holds my favorite. superhero movie moment ever, the tank in the desert. - 331433

3Spider-Man 3

Agreed. Hugely underrated. Found it to be a satisfying closure to the trilogy with enough action, character and story to keep you entertained. Sure it was overstuffed but it was well written enough to give each element enough screentime, and at least developed it's three villains somewhat (unlike the overrated Scott Pilgrim which couldn't do the job with 7). It's a great finisher to an excellent trilogy. - Mrveteran

I preferred this to Spider Man 2, one of the most overrated films of all time. In this the effects were better, and everything felt more exciting. Otherwise, I'd take Amazing Spider Man films and Spider Man 1 any day.

I admit some parts are weird ( dance scenes, crowd reactions...) but overall it was an action packed entertaining movie with heart and with symbiote being a great obstacle for peter both mentally and physical and sandman story was great too, very touching..

The villains and characters helped make the film strong on my opinion. - BoltMarksman

4Batman Returns

Honestly, I think this is the greatest Batman movie ever. Seriously, and Michael Keaton is the best Batman ever and Michelle Pfeiffer shines as Catwoman - Alexandr

By far the best superhero movie! Everything is just perfect... The music, sets, acting, cinematography, atmosphere... The's a lot more than you can say about the messy Nolan trilogy! If you want the true dark knight tune here... It doesn't get any better than this!

5Punisher (2004)
6Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

I'd say this is about even with Civil War. This feels darker, yet CW more balanced. Both overstuffed, but both good enough for me.

7Daredevil

Dark, edgy, with great direction, and stayed true to the source material.

8X-Men: The Last Stand

No, really don't think so. Start was good, but then when Singer left everything went downhill. Only slight saving graces were Grammar's Beast, Wolverine and Iceman.

Much better than people give it credit for.

9Hellboy

"Hellboy" is one of those rare movies that's not only based off of a comic book, but also feels like a comic book.

10Green Lantern

The Contenders

11The Shadow

The Shadow is one of the best super-hero films ever made. A sleek, noir adventure full of action, intrigue, truly evil villians, and one bombshell of a heroine. the Shadow is not one to be missed. - Alexandr

12Batman: Mask of the Phantasm
13Batman Forever
14Fantastic Four (2015)

This is a grossly misunderstood movie. It is not as bad as everyone thinks. I mean come on. Some people think the originals are better. The thing looks quite good and there are some solid performances in there

OH...MY...GOSH! Why is this awful film on here? - BoltMarksman

15Blade Trinity

Reynolds brought great comic relief to the movie that contrary to popular belief, was great for the movie. Blade sticks to his cold hearted and unemotional ways while someone else brings a little comedy to the show. Jessica Biel was great as always - Alexandr

16Dredd
17Elektra

Jennifer Garner is great action star. This overlooked film can prove it. She is great in fight scenes plus beautiful locations - Alexandr

18The Punisher (1989)

OK, Dolph Lundgren isn't superb actor but he did a phenomenal job here. He's definitely the best actor who played Punisher. And the movie was great but still very underrated - Alexandr

19The Phantom

Billy Zane is the man and even though the movie had a very campy feel to it, that seemed to be its redeeming factor. - Alexandr

20Iron Man 2

It wasn't awful, just not great either. Kind of a dumb fun movie. First one far superior.
