    Pero qué obra maestra, madre del amor hermoso.

    Camina perfectamente entre la comedia, el drama, la acción y la serie B. Menuda maravilla de inicio y menuda maravilla de final, uno de los más tristealegres de la historia del cine. Y qué banda sonora, gallina de piel.

    Crimson Bolt, qué gran superhéroe.

    Kick-ass is definitely more refined and stylised but this is so under-noticed. The single most raw superhero film ever made. It's pretty awesome and surprisingly heavy. I love that there are no actual 'villains' or 'plots'. It's just a dude in a costume fighting crime and trying to get his wife back. That Ellen Page rape scene was pretty uncomfortable though.

    I was enjoying Super for the first 45 minutes. It had a nice charm to it and I was enjoying the scenes of violence even though they where moments that I probably should not be laughing at but I had fun. But then the second act drops and the scene where Ellen Page rapes Rainn Wilson is when the movie goes down hill and becomes overly serious overly violent and less funny.

    In the end Super was not a terrible…

    This was an off the wall black comedy filled with enough blood and guts to satisfy the ultraviolence we crave. 
    My biggest problem with this film is also the part of it I like the most: the constant change in tone. On one hand, this film has a hard time staying on one topic or subject for long, making it harder for the audience to invest emotionally to a scene. The "between the panels" scene could have been a great…

    I had low expectations but this is pretty much perfect. I've wanted a brutally realistic criticism of the superhero genre for most of my adult life.

    I don't know how to feel about this movie. I watched it to be entertained but it was so completely bizarre I just lost interest. Don't get me wrong I am up for a good, confusing and out-there narrative but there was no real reason for this one to be this extreme. If you like crude or spoof movies that break the boundaries of the norm, this movie could be for you. Don't take it too seriously and watch it when you want to relax to get the full experience.

    'Scavenger Hunt 14 (May 2016)'
    17. A superhero film not based on any Marvel or DC characters

    I can't help but compare this to the near perfect movie that is 'Kick-Ass' and perhaps that's the reason 'Super' fell a little bit flat to me.
    Like there were some good bits. Rainn Wilson can act. Michael Rooker had a great little part as henchman Abe, as did other James Gunn regular, Gregg Henry, who played Detective Felkner. And I laughed a…

    While Super isn't without it's problems but it's still a highly entertaining superhero comedy. It never hits the heights of Kick Ass, it's a darker film and not as sharp however thanks to Rainn Wilson and the excellent Ellen Page; Super glosses over some of its series tonal issues. The violence might be a bit much for some people but its still worth a watch although its certainly not for everybody.

    Ever thought about becoming a superhero? I'd suggest watching this first.

    The tone of this movie is all over the place. It's humor mostly comes from the absurdity of it all. It can just as quickly become brutally violent. Being a superhero is dirty work, especially if you don't have any real super powers.

    The final third act was equal parts exhilarating and trying. I found myself genuinely disturbed at one point, which I was really not expecting.

    But that…

    Christ, I wish they'd given James Gunn Watchmen rather than to Captain Obvious. Maybe he'll get the remake. Anyway, watch this. It's funny and harrowing.
