The gods are real and deposited horrifying trinkets, one of which falls into the hands of a ne’er-do-well who abuses it to the great misfortune of everyone.

God damn Gal Gadot is beautiful. Also there is a movie which isn’t half bad.

A boy with a cellphone shot into his head develops cyber-synesthesia and superpowers.

It has a story and acting. While it’s perfectly watchable, it doesn’t set the scope of the superhero’s powers and ends up being a bunch of deus ex machina.

A man is kidnapped and forced to unlock his super powers to save the world.

It essentially changes genre as though it’s trying to add a twist to things, but that doesn’t work. It’s a blend of a few other ideas, and it doesn’t execute them particularly well.

For some reason children develop barely-controlled superpowers. Most of them die for some reason, and the rest are interred for some reason. Finally for obvious reasons children kinda fight back.

I can appreciate that this is not too bad of a girl power movie, but it is pretty obvious and inadequate.

What if Superman became evil right at puberty?

I don’t know how to classify this movie. It’s got a lot of drama and mystery to it, has some horror but only later, has some action but only at the end.. it’s kinda interesting but doesn’t show or say anything really. I’m going to flag this as disliked because it has no particular appeal.
