Super is a black comedy that stars Rainn Wilson as Frank, who is somewhat of a boring, unappealing guy who lives a life of dissapointment. In fact, his two best fondest memories are getting married and directing the cops to a purse snatcher, which he depicted in a crayon drawing that hangs on his wall for inspiration.
His wife gets addicted to drugs and ends up leaving him for Jacques, played by
Frank dubs himself the Crimson Bolt, starts off with a homemade suit and a wrench and is focused on laying down the whooping on drug dealers, pedophiles and even line-cutters. It doesn't take much time until he becomes a media sensation and is first viewed as a violent maniac until he starts to win the public's favor.
Eventually, Libby finds out Frank's secret and joins in as his sidekick, Boltie. Together, they work together to keep the streets safe while planning the ultimate attack on Jacques and his group of drug dealing thugs.
I actually enjoyed this movie a lot of and it feels like a indie and more dark version of Kick-Ass (one of my favorite movies). The violence is over the top and it's pretty graphic and dark, so don't watch it with the mom or junior. It had me laughing most of the time, has a good soundtrack and is a movie I will be able to watch again and again.
