Super K (Kiara the Brave)
Super K is a 2011 Indian computer-animated sci-fantasy film made by Indian animation studio Shemaroo Entertainment and directed by Vijay S. Bhanushaili and Smita Maroo.
When American home video distributor Phase 4 Films got the rights to the film in 2012, they decided to rename the film to Kiara the Brave to cash in on the success of Pixar's Brave despite having nothing to do with it whatsoever, besides one of the film's major characters bearing resemblance to Merida from Brave.
Dreamzone is a special world in the Galaxy, ruled by the kindhearted King Maximus. Unknown to him, his brother Badmess is plotting to overthrow him. Badmess creates Super K, a boy superhero, using the powers of all the Dreamzonians. But a goof-up causes Super K to turn out a freak, unable to control his powers, and he is deserted by Badmess. Badmess befriends the evil Dr. Ozox, a masked alchemist who has his own sinister plan to take over Dreamzone.
Super K and his friends come together to protect Dreamzone from the evil clutches of Dr. Ozox, but at the same time, Super K has to learn to control his powers.
Why It Sucks
- False advertising and misleading title; The actual film has nothing to do with Brave whatsoever and Kiara isn't even the main character of the film as that goes to the film's original title, Super K.
- Nasty and sickening animation. It's notably freaky on the people, especially Super K, whose wide eyes are always in front of the camera.
- The film's setting is all over the place.
- Incredibly bad voice acting.
- Childish and insulting dialogue (such as when Super K inspires the kids of the kingdom to fight, their motto is literally "Kid Power!").
- In some of the scenes, the lighting is inappropriately put in places where it shouldn't.
- The main antagonist looks way too similar to Jesus Christ.
- The main protagonist and female major character are clear ripoffs to Disney's Hercules and Merida respectfully.
- Kiara also looks like a ripoff of Fiona from Shrek.
- The plot doesn't make any sense at all.
- One scene involves a singing hydra (yes, really) and one head sings about having 'something tastier than dong sauce', which is highly inappropriate for a kid's animated film.
- Weird science elements, especially Wizard bring out a Medival-themed Laptop just to get the plot to move on.
- There's a scene that rips off the mill swordfight scene from Dead Man's Chest.
