The Bad Samaritan Must Die (2012)

A teenager known as The Orphan wants to meet the vigilante The Bad Samaritan, who in no way becomes the Batman to her Robin. It also turns out that he’s becoming something of a religious figure to the cops and people of the city, which is starting to go to his head.

He also looks an awful lot like the Midnighter.

This movie is kind of upsetting because it has a great premise — can worshipping someone not worth worshipping ever go well and hmm, I think I’ve lived through the answer to that one — but it’s shot so poorly and shifts tones so abruptly that it never really has a chance to deliver on the premise that it sells you on.

That’s a shame because I really want to see the movie that I thought that it was.

You can watch this on Tubi.
