    it's totally admirable that Gunn commits to the practical awfulness of his psychopath's power fantasy, but he's also a smirking obnoxious tool and so it doesn't taste very good. why is it that these "real life superhero" movies (see also KICK-ASS) always come from smarmy douchebags with an overriding tendency towards garish shock?

    Short-order cook Frank D'Arbo (Rainn Wilson) is one of life's biggest jokes cursed by bad luck. His friends used to piss on him at school, his prom date slept with the official photographer on the night of the prom and, more recently, his ex- drug addict wife, Sarah (Liv Tyler) has left him for local gangster, Jacques (Kevin Bacon).

    For comfort, Frank falls back on his religion, his favourite TV show 'The Holy Avenger' and the numerous hallucinations of demons…

    "You don't butt in line, you don't sell drugs, you don't molest little children, you don't profit on the misery of others. The rules were set a long time ago. They don't change."

    Guided by religious visions, one man suits up and sets out to rescue his wife from an evil drug dealer by tackling mischief wherever he sees it, aided only by a wrench and a sociopathic sidekick. Kick-Ass remixed by Frank Miller.

    Directed with style by James Gunn, propelled by great performances from Wilson, Page and Bacon; with an uplifting and unexpected ending.

    I still prefer Kick-Ass, but Ellen Paige makes this more than worth the watch.

    "Super" features a committed Rainn Wilson, some dark humor, and an interesting point of view, but its unrelatable characters and mixed messages keep it at arm's length. Ellen Page's performance is also quite irritating here.

    much like my former partner, it made me happy, then broke my heart. unlike my former partner, it lives up to its name.

    One of the better "real life superhero" movies. Actually feel some of the emotion at the end and has some real life consequences. Plus having Nathan Fillon in it doesn't hurt at all. Overall I really still enjoy this movie

    The lurid animation of the opening credits is fun for a bit, with its histrionic violence and catchy power-punk song. And then it keeps going. And going. And going, until it stops being fun. The rest of the film follows suit, relentlessly pounding the viewer with what James Gunn apparently thinks is comedy. It might make a decent 3-minute online video, but a feature length film is torture.

    Finally, a superhero movie so unrelentingly dark and disturbing that a gritty reboot by definition would have to be an actual snuff film, possibly involving the brutal mass murder of kittens. Saw this for an Exposition I am writing about James Gunn and oh but it is textually rich!

    Me entero que Kick Ass salió el mismo año que esta película. Si bien, ambas comparten una premisa: Una persona común intenta convertirse en un super heroe en el mundo real, Kick Ass se deja llevar por un retrato más caricaturesco, Super se aferra a su premisa y lo lleva a otras consecuencias.
    La película muestra a verdaderos psicópatas, alucinaciones religiosas y fragmentos de verdadero gore.
    Divertidad, cinica, grosera, incomoda. Es una película genial. ¿El final es muy complaciente y cursi? Probablemente, pero mi yo cursi lo disfruto.
