Hello, My Movievaures! I hope you had an amazing week. I’m so excited to be back with The Boys Season 3 review. The hype is real with this show, which has been praised since its release in 2019. Season 3 is no different and everyone has been commenting on how good this show is. Spoiler alert: it is amazing! I believe it is one of the best shows of the last decade. So let’s do a deep dive! As usual, as I’ve already commented on previous seasons, this article will have spoilers.
I will not lie, I still think that this show is not for everyone. If desacralizing superheroes is not your thing, as well as a constant bloodbath and sexual content, well don’t watch The Boys. None of the less, I think we are now used to such a considerable level of violence that it is not really a problem, even if this show still manages to shock our already perverted minds. This is clearly the goal and they’ve followed the comic’s path on this escalation, even though they have diverted from the original story.
This season is as great as the previous ones, which is not something common, let’s face it. After the events leading to Butcher’s wife’s death and the exposure of Klara’s Nazi background, the team still needs to deal with Homelander, but they will now face a new threat within the government itself. In a last attempt to finally get rid of this superhero menace, the boys will start looking for the only weapon capable of killing Homelander: Soldier Boy.
It was amazing to watch Jensen Ackles once again on the small screen. He was incredible as Soldier Boy, and I couldn’t ask more for this character. He is exactly the stereotype he needed to be in order to represent America’s dark history since WWI: racism, misogynism, intolerance, and toxic masculinity. He was a perfect addition to the buncj of a**holes in the superhero team. Antony Starr is still the highlight of this show. I’m always so stressed out when he is on a scene, as I’m always expecting the worst to happen with his maniac personality.
The plot is, as usual pretty well written and the characters keep evolving even though we might think we already know them well. Each one has its own demons and motives. There are no good guys and bad guys, even though some of them are way worse. Even Homelander, as he is as f***ed as he is because of the horrible childhood he had. In the end, this season only portrays what most of us already know: everything is political, nothing is what it looks like and there are only a few real heroes in this world.
This is all for today My Movievaures! I hope you enjoyed this article and let me know your thoughts on this latest season of The Boys. In the meantime, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for more news and live reviews. I’ll be back next week with a new article on The Movievaures!
