Description

If you are as tired of superheroes as we are right now then you are gonna love this hot take on The Boys, a dark satire that eviscerates the recent Disney/MCU commodification of the comic book movie genre with a steel-toed kick right to the codpiece. Loosely based on the ultra-violent cult comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys explores the basic idea of “What if superheroes were real? And what if they were all a**holes?” Throw in a rag-tag team of vigilantes intent on taking them all down and you get a bonkers, profanity-laden, ultraviolent funhouse ride. But underneath the veneer hides some very pointed critiques of our modern world that resonate beyond simply a bunch of weirdos in spandex blowing stuff up real good. It’s sharp, it’s funny, and we really dig it. So we thought we’d spoil it all for you!
