HBO Max – Here’s a good plan for this weekend if you’re into these kinds of movies. Dwayne Johnson, the only actor who doesn’t need padding to play a superhero, is the best in the film.
The superhero movie from the DC universe, Black Adam, has been released for free exclusively on HBO Max, although it can be purchased or rented on other platforms. You can see the trailer in the opening video of the news.
Black Adam arrives on HBO Max just over a month after its theatrical release. It is a bumpy journey because it has not been very well received by critics, although it has had a satisfactory box office collection of around 400 million dollars.
Black Adam, hero or villain?
Although from a film genre point of view, it is a superhero movie, its protagonist, Black Adam, cannot be described as such. He is a hero and, at times, a villain who acts out of revenge or for his interests, regardless of the consequences. It is up to the viewer to rate it.
This is what the synopsis of the film tells us:
Nearly 5,000 years after being endowed with the omnipotent powers of the ancient gods and just as quickly imprisoned, Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson) is released from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique brand of justice on the modern world. “.
Within the DC universe, it connects with Shazam!, but you must see the credits at the film’s end because there are important clues as to how Black Adam will integrate into the DC cinematographic universe.
If you want to know more, we recommend the review of Black Adam at HobbyConsolas.com. And an alternative vision is the comic book review of Black Adam, where it is commented on whether or not it is faithful to the comics.
Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra directs Black Adam. Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, Bodhi Sabongui, and Pierce Brosnan complete the cast.
We’ll see if the premiere makes us forget the controversy over the cancellation and expulsion of Westworld from HBO Max and two dozen other series.
Black Adam, the latest superhero movie in the DC universe, is now free on HBO Max. You can also find it for rent and digital sale on other platforms. It’s coming out on Blu-ray 4K next year, but it’s available to pre-order now.
