Charming and fun homemade superhero caper

Super review

“Shut up crime!” screams the tagline.

With the box art of Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page as homemade heroes and the jaunty cheery title, you’d understandably expect frantic Kick-Ass thrills. Beware: Super’s suit is cut from darker cloth.

Rainn Wilson’s Frank D’Arbo is a jilted misfit, driven to the streets as The Crimson Bolt by a message from God. Page is the unhinged comic store girl hellbent on sidekick-dom.

This is far from comic capers, closer to violent adult dramedy about an angry man with a wrench. Super? Smashing.
