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.
Summary: Ever heard a joke, people laugh and you don't get it? Well, this film is a bit like that. Not to ruin the story but this is a typical guy with no super powers fighting crime, a caper filled with the usual stupid humour you get in really really bad TV shows. The film is very badly acted, the humour never lands and the overall experience is painful to put anyone through.
Conclusion: This film really blew me away - it is funny, but it is the storyline, acting, direction and soundtrack that really make this. I have already watched it twice and can't wit to watch it again!
Conclusion: This film completely amazed me. Obviously as everyone else has said, it has comparisons with Kick-Ass. Kick-Ass had a lot of juvenile quality to it, but it worked. This is a little more grown up with an equal amount of dark humour. But don't be fooled into thinking it's just another unlikely hero story with the same as everything else. The ending shocked me, and absolutely blew me away. I seriously recommend buying this even if you're not into superheroes..
Conclusion: Wow I loved this film its similar to Kick Ass it has the same emotional and humour parts in i thought it was good i like films that are underrated but only few people can see the potential these films have worth the money thanks!
