Super

Rated NR 96 minutes 2011

In this homemade-looking variation on Kick-Ass, a lifetime loser named Frank D’Arbo (potato-faced Rainn Wilson) stitches together his own tight red outfit and becomes the Crimson Bolt, a superhero crime fighter in a town with no crime to fight, other than the bully (Kevin Bacon) who stole Frank’s wife (Liv Tyler). Mild laughs and thrills all around. Luckily Frank has comic-store clerk Libby (Ellen Page) on his side. Page has a record of rescuing slack youth-market genre efforts, and writer-director James Gunn’s plodding adventure comedy is no exception. Instantly forgettable but fleetingly entertaining. (96 min.)
