The hero in a movie is meant to fill audience members with positive emotions. They are there to make you feel happy when they win or sad when they lose. Sometimes they are there to make you laugh, or even get angry. They can even inspire you. Some of the best hero moments in movies are when what you see on the screen makes the hair on your arms stand up. Moments like this:
Now imagine all those moments, all those emotions, in one place. Thanks to CLS videos, you don’t have to. The above video, entitled Meet the Hero, is a montage of the greatest heroes from multiple decades of movies, as well as multiple genres. It starts off with the final monologue of the Other from The Avengers, as he warns Thanos that going against the heroes of Earth may not be the best idea. The video then highlights heroes from all walks of life. From superheroes like Batman and Captain America to innocent young women who sacrifice themselves for their loved ones, like Katniss Everdeen. From the barefoot cop John McClane, to the senator from Alderaan as she tries to take down the Empire. Proving that heroes don’t have to be from action movies, we are shown George Bailey as he runs down the street, realizing he needs to be there for his family.
This 6-minute video definitely proves that you don’t necessarily need powers to be a hero, just the desire to do what’s right (although the powers are a BIG help).
You can find all of the heroes included in the video, as well as the timestamps here.
So what do you think? Was there anyone you feel was missing from the video? Was there anyone you felt wasn’t “hero worthy”? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
