Super

Thank God for Ellen Page. If it weren't for her presence in SUPER (a film with virtually nothing "super" about it, aside from Page's uproarious supporting performance), the film would border on being terrible. But thanks to the fact that she was cast, this cinematic experience is slightly easier to endure, though I still struggle to recommend it.

A case for Super

It would be easy to simply dismiss Super as the cheap, indy cinema, not-very-cool, Kick Ass wannabe that it appears to be. Easy but incorrect. Super asks the viewer the same question as Batman, Watchmen and Kick Ass, "What would happen if regular people took it upon themselves to become masked heroes?" Despite this premise, even those three films allow for impossibly powerful characters. Just ... read more

Falls short of being an instant classic

"I wonder all the time why no-one's never just stood up and become a real superhero."

By now, a motion picture concerning an average citizen suiting up to fight real-world crime is not an original premise anymore. Most recently we've seen Defendor and Kick-Ass assume such routines, and the 1980s film Hero at Large used a similar idea. 2011's Super is writer-director James Gunn's tak... read more

An average movie

“I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, it took me a while to get into the damned thing. First of all, with 'Kick-Ass', we already had a dark comedy about a major loser trying to become a super-hero and this movie didn't seem to provide any new or interesting ideas about the genre. Furthermore, it was rather ridiculous to try to make us believe that a girl looking like Liv Tyler would end up with such a pathetic loser, even if she was a recovering addict. Fortunately, the whole thing got much better as soon as Ellen Page got really involved. To be honest, it still rather sad that Page seems to be stuck playing Juno over and over again but I have to admit that her character pr” read more
