A new superhero movie that recently premiered on Paramount+ aimed to provide audiences with a hiatus from the duopoly of the MCU and the DCEU. Titled Secret Headquarters, the film was directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. Joost and Schulman previously worked on Catfish, Paranormal Activities 3 and 4, and Nerve. The movie was co-written with prominent Hollywood screenwriter Christopher Yost, who knows his way around superhero films with movies like Thor: Ragnarok, Thor: The Dark World, and The Mandalorian under his belt.
The movie received a lukewarm response from critics during its release. A positive one from Jude Dry of IndieWire wrote: “With a PG-rated humor that parents can enjoy too, Secret Headquarters feels like the movie equivalent of the fun uncle who speaks to you like an adult, but also drives a mean Mario Kart.” However, a particularly harsh review from CNN wrote: “The film seems too content to color completely within the lines. The resulting picture might be enough of a diversion for younger kids, but even they won’t be missing much if what’s in the movie stays secret.”
In other words, critics are torn when it comes to whether Secret Headquarters is good or bad. Regular audiences, however, are not. With a whopping 78 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes from regular viewers, it’s a pretty good indication that Secret Headquarters delivers what it promises: action-packed fun for the entire family. This could be explained not just by the storyline but also by the carefully assembled cast that breathed life into this film.
