This is a great documentary regarding the idea and sides of evil characters in stories, comics, and movies. Dante Luna sets out to Comic Con Rhode Island to interview actors, actresses, artists, and cosplayers. I feel all their opinions are important towards the contrast of evil. From them playing or drawing the actual character. To illustrate this emotion and demonstrate to the reader is more than enough to help explain they’re motive.
Throughout the video you may see some familiar faces (especially if you grew up in the 90’s) such as a few members of Power Rangers and the villains they constantly fought against. I love the way they explain the heroic aspect of a hero fighting a bad villain. In which they always tried to either take over the Earth or destroy it. Good Always Conquers Over Evil
“Contrast of Evil” is a documentary about villain theory. I spoke with people who love stories and asked them to reflect on their feelings of the “bad guy.” My intention isn’t to persuade the world to think any one way about the idea of darkness in entertainment. This is a conversation piece that explores the contrast of evil in art and how it relates to life. – Dante Luna

I thought the breakdown of an Anti-Hero which was stated by Kerrigan Mahan, perfectly. The Anti-Hero is for example Walter White from Television Series Breaking Bad. Even though Walter White was a meth dealer people were rooting for him to get away with it. Walter’s initial intension after finding out he has Lung Cancer, he needs to leave his family with enough money to be able to fund themselves after his death. He was willing to go to any extent to make this into reality. Throughout the series you do feel an understanding to why he’s doing it and if it’s worth it at the end.
This concludes my review on Dante Luna’s Documentary on Contrast of Evil. Anyone who is a fan of heroes, villains, stories, cosplay, comic cons, or comics. You should definitely take a look and watch Contrast of Evil.
