    "Suffering from jarring tonal shifts and an unfocused narrative, Super never becomes the biting satire it wants to be."

    Second time through, Super is just as fun--and awkward--as the first, although it didn't strike me as brilliantly as it did several years ago.

    This movie tries to be a hipster "Kick Ass" and falls pretty flat. The Ellen Page "love scene" is severely creepy. Rain Wilson deserves better.

    Rain Wilson is great but this movie is a disaster

    Upon the re-watch...

    This is SO much better than 'Kick-Ass', how the Hell did I ever compare the two?

    I liked mostly everything in this very much. But in parts the compilation of humour and drama didn't fully work for me. And what I liked, I did like very much, but not to an extent where I was at any time really amazed by it.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    One of the most deeply personal fictional films I think I've ever seen. I can't recall another movie so willingly self-indictive, hopeful, and yet shockingly abhorrent at the same time. A movie where the "male fantasy" is so consistently beat down and disfigured has never felt so difficult to watch.

    It's a film that employs the most despicable masculine desires and then paints the surreal, brutal consequences of those realities. It's a movie where the hyper-sexual manic pixie dream girl…

    While the credits rolled, I was unsure what my final thoughts were. Neither positive or negative, I landed somewhere in the middle. Super was written and directed by James Gunn, who's been launched into the spotlight recently for Guardians of the Galaxy. Gunn began his career with low budget movies making frequent use of gory violence, sex, and frequent profanity, and his directorial touch is rather noticeable with violence and profanity abounding and the generally dark tone of the film.…
