More words: This is the DVD version of a 3-part webseries masterminded by Joss Whedon. He's the guy who created Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel and Firefly, so you know you're onto a good thing here. He and his friends made this during the Writers Guild strike, in their own time and with their own money!
The songs are catchy, it's all very entertaining and there's some great one liners! The sad thing is it's very short (about 40 minutes), but the DVD comes with a bunch of extras (about 90 minutes worth), including real people applying to join the Evil League of Evil (they held a contest), as well as Commentary The Musical!
The DVD is also NOT Region 1 but REGION FREE, which means it works on any DVD player in the world! I heartily recommend this disc!
When it came out on the Internet, it crashed the server because there were so many hits, and has just won a People's Choice Award in the States, so dig out some hard-earned cash and settle back to watch a once-in-a-lifetime story (that we all hope gets a sequel) then go and buy Firefly, Serenity, Angel ...
Joss Whedon (Buffy, Angel, Firefly) wrote this with family and friends during the writers' strike, filmed it just before embarking on Dollhouse and released it to enormous acclaim in the summer of 2008 - so popular it "broke the internet". The central character, Dr Horrible, desperately wants two things - Penny, the love of his life, and to be a super-villain. Alas - how can they be compatible?
The songs are fresh and stick in the head. The lyrics and script are as funny and engaging as you might expect from this master-writer. The DVD extras are awesome - where else would you get a whole new musical as a commentary? Applications to join the Evil League of Evil sent in from master criminal wannabes from all over the world? You know you need this!
and wrote, funded and directed this short comedy-musical completely independently, to prove their worth to the TV execs. There were
no teams of technical geniuses on hand to polish up the film with CGI. No lush sets. Nobody to fetch their coffees for them. No... no,
actually, that's all this film lacks. One set even looks impressive.
It's got great gags that are still funny five viewings later, it's got catchy songs that are written by talented songwriters, and it's
got some big stars including Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), Nathan Fillion (Castle, Firefly), Felicia Day (The Guild,
Eureka) and Simon Helberg (Big Bang Theory.)
Best of all, it's a traditional three-act play with a very modern twist. Neil Patrick Harris is Dr. Horrible, a would-be supervillian
who dreams of earning a place in the Evil League of Evil, and winning the love of the girl he sees every week at the laundromat. He has
to show his crush how sweet he is and show the League how evil he is, while keeping his online followers up to date on his antics - yes,
the story is framed in the episodes of Dr. Horrible's video-blog.
If you're looking for explosions and lasers galore, you might be looking in the wrong place. Where this film shines is in the quality of
the script, and the songs. It's probably to its benefit that the film had a tiny budget, and an even tinier running time (42 minutes),
because every line of dialogue is a treasure.
The extras are well worth the money too.Read more ›

Simply amazing stuff. The movie itself is short at about 45 minutes but it's so full of songs, funny dialogue and tragic twists that it would put longer movies to shame. Read morePublished 19 months ago by M. Weerts
