    "Super" is being sold as a comedy, but I doubt it will play that way. It begins as the portrait of a lovable loser named Frank, and as it ends, we're pretty sure he's an insane ruthless killer. That's not a joke. Maybe writer-director James Gunn intended it as a joke, but after the camera lingers on the young heroine with a third of her face blown off, it's hard to laugh.

    I quite understand that this could all be…

    Dark as fuck, and quite hilarious to boot. If the idea of Rainn Wilson smashing people's heads in with a wrench doesn't make you laugh, then this isn't the film for you. A lot more tonally consistent than Kick-Ass, and a lot more fun too. And Ellen Page not only didn't annoy me, she actually aroused me. Her character is just normal enough to work, and still pretty fucking crazy. The ending is suitably OTT, as are the jibes at…

    I did not know what to expect going into James Gunn's Super. It could have been some indie comedy or a stylized Super hero story. And this one is a little bit of both.
