A superpower is granted to three boys, but their significant differences impact its development in them. Or something.

Agencies the world 'round borrow from Nazi experiments to create limited super soldiers, and Steve Rogers Nick Gant is swept up into a conspiracy for American conscripts to free themselves.

Pretty straightforward and interesting; recommended. It unfortunately doesn't tie itself up neatly.

An old man is surprised to learn has has 19 year old daughter, who becomes embroiled in a web of vengeance and violence set against him.

I really like this movie. It might play out as too flat for most people, but for me the character was well-crafted and acted.

Like few movies, He Never Died explores age and power at its extreme. Fans of Interview with the Vampire - (1994 movie), for example, should appreciate such elements.

A mad scientist comes to collect an animal experiment, but it is sentient and has friends.

A possible cure for the plague that has ruined the world could be brought from New York City to Atlanta, but for a powerful gang that stumbled upon the opportunity.

It's not great, but it's not bad. Definite bubblegum movie watching; put your brain on hold and enjoy it for what it was trying to me. I don't regret the time I spent on this.
