While Prime Video has had a lot of success in the TV space, I still think they struggle in the original cinema realm. However, that didn’t stop them from trying, including the release of Samaritan, a superhero-style movie starring Sylvester Stallone.
Will we see another fun addition to the superhero movie space? Here’s everything we know about the Prime Video Samaritan movie.
Courtesy of Prime Video, 13-year-old Sam Cleary (Javon Walton) suspects that his mysterious and reclusive neighbor, Mr. Smith (Sylvester Stallone), is actually a legend hiding in plain sight. Twenty-five years ago, Granite City vigilante Samaritan was pronounced dead after a battle with his rival, Nemesis. Everyone thought he was left for dead, but a few people, including Sam, hoped he was still alive.
Our opinion on the principle
I don’t hate the premise, but I don’t know how I feel about the movie either. However, I will say that Prime Video has done a great job with The boys, which mixes with the world of superheroes, so I hope they put a strong energy in this film. And honestly, Stallone can still kick ass and take names at his age, and I’ll buy him.

Is there a soundtrack?
For the moment, no, there is no soundtrack for this film.
Is there a trailer for Samaritan?
Yes! It’s here:
The trailer sets the tone for the whole movie and maybe gives a little more than I would have hoped. We see how Samaritan is exposed by Sam proving himself right about who he is, which I didn’t like. Then we see the stakes as the whole town is in shambles with crime. Finally, we can already see our villain knowing who he is. I didn’t like seeing all of this unfold in the trailer. With all that being said, I wish (for a hero) hope this one is good.
