Comic Book Villains

Overview

The DVD version of Comic Book Villains is surprisingly very nice for what is essentially a low-budget, direct-to-video release. The anamorphic widescreen image is bright and clear, vital to the design of the film, which features a lot of comic book-ish primary colors. The Dolby 5.1 sound is another swell plus, and the rear speakers are given plenty to do in this splendidly noisy movie.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This very funny, very dark comic thriller plays to the eccentric cast's strengths. There is never a dull moment as the fitfully screwball story goes over-the-top in unpredictable ways, climaxing in a preposterous sequence of tragi-comedy that is as shocking as it is hilarious. Reminiscent of Very Bad Things and other films where good people are compelled to do nasty business, Comic Book Villains has sleeper hit stamped all over it. It's not for all tastes, but those who enjoy outrageous farces with an evil edge will go ga-ga. Comics collectors will particularly enjoy the fanatical zaniness, but the potential audience goes across the board. Donal Logue, so good in The Tao of Steve, sets a whimsically high standard and is met by all, particularly the cunning Cary Elwes and the always-dangerous Natasha Lyonne, who may never find another script that nails her skill at sarcasm this well again.
