1048 words - 5 pages

When most people think about a movie with super heroes and villain they think of a movie about the hero defeating the villain. Dr. Horrible Sing along Blog is not one of those movies. In this movie we see that the main focus is on the villain Billy aka Dr. Horrible. This movie is about him trying to get into the evil league of evil, or ELE, which is a collection of the most evil villains in this universe, but also he is trying to get the love of his life, Penny, to fall in love with him. The first time she talks to him he is in the middle of stealing a component to power his freeze ray. He is to busy with the heist too pay much attention to her. Right when he is about to get the component we met the “hero” Captain Hammer. He tries to stop Dr. horrible but instead he “saves” penny and she falls in love with him. With his newly powered freeze ray he tries to take down Captain Hammer but ends up failing because he mentioned his heist on his Blog. Then his is told by Bad Horse, the leader of the ELE, that know he must kill someone to make it in. he doesn’t really want to kill anyone until he finds out Captain hammer is only going out with penny because he wants her.
