Excerpt: Super tells the story of average joe to superhero in a fresh way. Frank/Crimson Bolt (Rainn Wilson) is odd, dark, and probably mentally unsound. His brand of crime fighting is absurd, using a wrench to bash people with. How'd he choose a wrench? Well, he researched some other superheros with no powers, and what they used for weapons. After some scientific experiments involving a cantaloupe, he went with a wrench. One of the funniest things I've ever seen.
Excerpt: I think Super ius like Kick Ass gone mad or Kick Ass on acid. I think Wilson's character is what would have become of the teenager in Kick Ass if he hadn't turned into Kick Ass when he did. It is extremely violent and sometimes you could question whether The Crimson Bolt is actually avenging crime rightfully or he is going way overboard. Wison, Page and Bacon all give outstanding peformances in this sometimes comical yet sort of uneasy to watch sort of film.
Excerpt: Disc Size: 37.397 GB Viewed on: Samsung PN50C550- 50" 1080p Plasma, PS3 Slim Movie: Marketed as a similar copy of Kick-Ass, Super got a bit of buzz around and looked appealing. Although not quite living up to that standard it is being compared to, Super still is an enjoyable, yet sometimes taskful movie to get into.
Conclusion: My wife and i were surprised at how different this was from what we were expecting. The violence was quite shocking for a film with a funny undertone so it was hard to put this in a category to describe for other people. A mix of Juno, Batman and a Tarantino film. Blu ray quality was very good, the film has a real life look about it , not glossy and soft like a big blockbuster has. 5 stars.
Conclusion: Now this is one not for everyone but i loved it!Completely insane and hilariously funny.Rainn Wilson adds alot of heart to the ultraviolent mayhem and Ellen Page absolutely rocks!A real stroke of indie genius from James Gunn.
