What makes “The Boys” more interesting than so many other milquetoast superhero movies and TV shows out there right now is the sense of genuine peril that pervades it. This is a show where a star-spangled demagogue imbued with Superman’s powers is not above using his heat vision to laser the heads off innocent civilians. In season 3, Homelander (Antony Starr) is described as “a paranoid, malignant narcissist,” and all throughout the series, those around him live under the threat that he could snap and kill anyone at any time.the boys season 3 free download on 4k hot video.
That gives “The Boys” an underlying tension many of its caped contemporaries lack. It’s as if the viewer is waiting for a bomb to go off — or radiation-infused Captain America analog Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) to detonate. Speaking of Marvel characters, in “The Boys” season 3, Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) also openly rewrites the old Spider-Man adage, “With great power, comes great responsibility,” adding some pepper to it: “With great power, comes the absolute certainty that you’ll turn into a right c***.
It’s just another way of saying, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely,” but it gets the point across. And of course, those words apply just as much to Butcher and Hughie (Jack Quaid) and their newfound dependency on the Temp V drug to power them up with their own superhuman abilities. From the very beginning — ever since the super speedster A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) turned Hughie’s girlfriend into a splat on the street in the series premiere — it’s been clear that “The Boys” is concerned with power and how those who have it tend to abuse it at the expense of others. This season, as it continues to explore the dark underside of Hollywood’s aspirational superhero myths, it has only grown more vocal.
More than just a satire for these dark times, “The Boys” season 3 is nothing less than a jeremiad against the cultural rot that has left us fixated on superheroes and celebrities and performative political correctness, while mass shootings continue unabated in the U.S. and the decline and fall of the new nationalist republic occurs in real-time. If that sounds overblown, just remember: this is a show with a superhero orgy. It doesn’t take itself too seriously.download movies for free on 4k hotvideo.
On the red carpet at the “Dawn of the Seven” movie premiere, Hughie is forced to endure a photo op with A-Train while Homelander — who enjoyed some rough sex with a Nazi last season — repeats a succession of lies across a succession of cameras, each capturing the same talking points about how he’s “just a man who fell for the wrong woman.” Later, Homelander makes a potato-porn pitstop to check in on said Nazi, the badly burned Stormfront (Aya Cash), whose ministrations with her one good hand expire with her dreams of an Aryan Übermensch army, leaving her without the will to power or the will to live.
Naturally, Vought International turns the star search for Stormfinder’s replacement into a reality show. This is America, where “Thor: Love and Thunder” happened to hit theaters the same day that “The Boys” season finale hit Prime Video. Speaking as someone who recently wrote five straight “Love and Thunder” articles in one day, I have to wonder what the early buzz coming out of “Dawn of the Seven” would be like in our world, and if the assassination of a world leader that day would even be a blip on anyone’s radar. No doubt, there would be people tweeting about how “Dawn of the Seven” was the “best Vought Studios movie yet.”
Not to beat a dead goat, but one thing “The Boys” does take seriously is Marvel memes, or at least the one about Ant-Man crawling up Thanos’s butt. That gets written into the season premiere as a sex scene involving the shrinkable supe Termite (Brett Geddes). Here, and during the slightly overhyped “Herogasm” orgy — where Love Sausage (Derek Johns) brandishes his stretchable member and Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso) gets a different white fluid to the face — “The Boys” goes for the gross-out.It’s more disgusting than titillating, but maybe that’s the point. We’re meant to squirm and laugh uncomfortably at what we see in “The Boys.” Superhero shock-jock tactics are maybe the only contingency left for a streaming title that hopes to pierce the white noise and snap its audience out of numbness to the real world and its fresh daily horrors.
“Truly there is no God here,” observes Frenchie (Tomer Capon) as he and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) stroll through VoughtLand’s rainbow capitalist Inclusive Kingdom, where everyone’s a sing-song hero and veggie tacos and burgers with doughnut buns are sold to overweight theme park guests. Other food vendors include BLM BLTs, the Woke Wok, and LGBTurkey Legs.
The crass commercialization of social causes receives a further nod in A-Train’s Turbo Rush Energy Drink commercial, which is hilarious but might seem ridiculous until you realize it’s directly spoofing a real Pepsi commercial starring Kendall Jenner.Butcher explores the flip side of VoughtLand in a gun show where metal detectors filter out everything but firearms while patriotic country music helps indoctrinate kids into the “silent majority” of the Vought Rifle Association. Before Butcher slices his head and car in half with his temporary eyebeams, Gunpowder (Sean Patrick Flanery) touts 2-for-1 sales on hollow points, exclaiming, “God bless, y’all!”
