A raucous comic book-inspired action picture. Rainn Wilson gives a deep and soulful performance.

— Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times

Sweet and earnest, but also raunchy and fearless. Ellen Page is a complete joy. Has such a charm, it's pretty hard to resist.

— Karen Valby, Entertainment Weekly

THIS FILM IS PURE MOVIE MAGIC! Comedy, violence, hot ladies... it has everything.

In the outlandish dark comedy SUPER, James Gunn has created what is perhaps the definitive take on self-reflexive superheroes.

When sad-sack loser Frank (Rainn Wilson) sees his ex-addict wife (Liv Tyler) willingly snatched by a seductive drug dealer (Kevin Bacon), he finds himself bereft and wholly unable to cope. But soon he decides to fight back under the guise of a DIY superhero called Crimson Bolt. With a hand-made suit, a wrench, and a crazed sidekick named Boltie (Ellen Page), the Crimson Bolt beats his way through the mean streets of crime in hopes of saving his wife.  The rules were written a long time ago: You are not supposed to molest children, cut lines or key cars; if you do, prepare to face the wrath of the Crimson Bolt!

SUPER combines absurd humor with balls-out violence to create something that is unashamed, unimitable, and dark, dramatic and subversive to the core.
