Most Underrated Comic Book Movies

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

The Top Ten

1 Watchmen

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!

Everything is perfect from start to end better than that hulk

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

2 Hulk

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

3 Batman 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!

What about the first batman? Jeez, what is up with American audiences? One the joker is dead, you kind of have to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

Wait, this movie sucked. Hell even Batman and Robin was better than his garbage.

4 Spider-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..

A satisfying closure to what will be the one of the greatest superhero movie trilogies

5 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

I would feel okay if it had mixed reviews rather than negative

This is what I mean by Zack Snyder doing scene after scene randomly. Batman v Superman had one of the most razzie wins with Hillary's America: The Secret History Of The Democratic Party. Even Suicide Squad won an oscar. Batman V Superman never did. And Jesse Eisenberg deserves a razzie

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.

6 Daredevil

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

I enjoyed this to an extent

7 Hellboy

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

8 Punisher (2004)
9 Batman: Mask of the Phantasm
10 Dredd

Oh of my favourites - lolsy

The Contenders

11 V for Vendetta

A great comic book movie with a good message.

12 X-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.

13 The 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

An absolutely brilliant movie and totally underrated. A perfect 10/10. Simply one of the best movies ever made. A masterpiece of art.

14 Green Lantern
15 Batman Forever
16 Fantastic 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

17 Blade
18 Blade 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

19 The Rocketeer

Great retro-action with great Billy Campbell and stunning Jennifer Connelly - Alexandr

20 Iron Man 2

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

SPECTACULAR
