SUPER (2011)

Super (red)

Director: James Gunn

Writer: James Gunn

A pretty crazy low budget indie flick about a Do It Yourself superhero.  Rainn Wilson plays Frank who loses his wife to the influence of a drug dealer named Jacques.  Convinced that God has touched him he begins fighting crime under the name The Crimson Bolt and by fighting crime I mean splitting peoples heads open with a wrench.  The movie starts funny and builds to a fairly intense and darkly dramatic ending which ending up being my favorite part of the movie.  Very unexpected and not really like any movie I have seen recently.  Definitely more Taxi Driver than Kick-Ass.  Definitely worth checking out.
