When Frank loses his wife to a drug dealer something snaps. After what he feels is divine intervention, he dons the costume of crime fighter Crimson Bolt. At night, he waits behind dumpsters with his chosen weapon, a monkey wrench, to enforce his own brand of justice. All just practice to free his wife. Along the way he gains a sidekick who seems just a little too eager to dish out violence. They build their arsenal and exact bloody justice on crime.
I really liked Slither, a film out a number of years ago, also by Writer/Director James Gunn, which is the primary reason I went to see Super. You can definitely see the same mind behind it. Definitely not the feel-good movie of the year, but very likely different than any other film you’ll likely see for a while.
