In a world of super-villains, evil schemes and global domination… someone has to take out the trash.Feeling like a cross between The Incredibles and The Venture Bros., Henchmen boasts a big-name genre cast including Firefly's Nathan Fillion, Daredevil's Rosario Dawson, The X-Men's James Marsden, Spider-Man 2's Alfred Molina, Silicon Valley's Thomas Middleditch, Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Craig Robinson, 30 Rock's Jane Krakowski, to name but a few.
Welcome to the world of Henchmen, third class. When a fresh-faced new recruit joins the Union of Evil, he is assigned to a motley crew of blue-collar workers led by fallen henchmen Hank.
But when “The Kid” accidentally steals the super villain’s ultimate weapon, Hank must break his “risk nothing” code to save the boy he’s befriended, even if it means becoming the one thing he has always avoided… being a hero.
However, despite this cast, I had heard absolutely zilch about Henchmen, until I stumbled across the trailer on eOne Films' YouTube channel... just days before the film was due to open.
Sadly, it appears to only be getting a very limited release, in select locations, from tomorrow (Friday).
But hopefully that means it'll find its way to home video release all the sooner.
