Super (2010)

In the storyline written by pn IMBD, “Frank Darrbo is a hapless fry cook. When his wife Sarah falls off the wagon and dumps him for Jacques, a drug dealer, Frank tries to get her back by reporting her kidnapped, grabbing her from Jacques’ car, and wailing for her to return. After watching Christian TV and having a vision, he becomes a superhero to fight evil. He sews a costume, finds a weapon (a pipe wrench) and looks for crimes to stop. He has problems: his wrench inflicts real injury, so the cops want him for being a vigilante, his sense of boundaries is flawed, and Jacques’ gang has guns. Libby, a clerk at a comic book store, becomes his sidekick, and it’s time to go save Sarah. What chance do they have?” I thought Super was a very funny, dark, movie with lots of action and violence especially in the last third of the movie. Rainn Wilson, Kevin Bacon and Ellen Page were great! The final scene with Libby will shock the crap out of you. This movie was directed by James Gunn who will be directing the new movie, Guardians of the Galaxy.
