Super (2010) 🎞
Before James Gunn helmed Guardians of the Galaxy, he directed this.
This movie was in competition with Kick-Ass.
The film stars Dwight Schrute, I mean Rainn Wilson as Frank Garbo, played by Rainn Wilson, who becomes a costumed superhero named the Crimson Bolt, who uses a f**king pipe wrench as a weapon, and goes out to fight crime, while also trying to rescue his wife from a drug dealer.
This movie is brutal, it's also pretty funny.
When I rewatched it, I was just blown away by James Gunn's direction for this movie.
He really knocked it out the park for this movie.
It's really hard to imagine he toned it down when he made Guardians of the Galaxy.
This movie is like a different version of Kick-Ass and with a different story.
I don't know why this film should've just been called "The Crimson Bolt"
This film really does parody the superhero genre pretty well.
Even toward the end of the movie, that's when s**t gets insanely real, and there were unexpected moments that just makes the film unpredictable.
I'm really glad James Gunn made something original and hilarious, in Guardians of the Galaxy, the humour is OK and can be funny, I feel like Super's humour is like over-the-top hilarious.
Liv Tyler seems to have a way to star in superhero movies, like last time with the Incredible Hulk.
Kevin Bacon was a great villain, and Ellen Page is hilarious. Also Michael Rooker is in this movie, it seems like he and James Gunn can do anything together these days.
Rainn Wilson pretty much steals the show for me, he's really funny, I couldn't help but stop laughing at whatever word comes out of his mouth, he makes me laugh.
This movie isn't for kids to watch, but adults can enjoy it, it's really funny.
So that's my review and hoped you enjoyed it.
