Super is the latest in a long line of superhero movies. But it’s not like Superman or Captain America, even if his name and appearance draw comparisons to both. It’s more like the underrated Kick-Ass or Defendor. The synopsis is below:
After his wife falls under the influence of a drug dealer, an everyday guy transforms himself into Crimson Bolt, a superhero with the best intentions, though he lacks for heroic skills.
Rainn Wilson plays the Crimson Bolt, and is joined by Ellen Page (Left), who plays his sidekick. Liv Tyler plays the wife and Kevin Bacon the drug dealer. The movie also features
Captain Malcom Reynolds Nathan Fillion.
It’s from the IFC, so it’s likely to be less funny and more depressing than the trailer would indicate, but I hear it’s worth a watch. Here is the trailer:
The reason I say you’ll never see this is bcause this isn’t a wide release thing. It’s gonna be hard for a lot of you to find this, but I know in the Detroit Area it’s opening this Friday at the Royal Oak Art Theater. I think I’ll be there.
