  • Shot on the cheap, with cheesy animated credits and comic-panel "Bams!" and "Pows!" splashed across the screen, Super has a jokey, low-rent quality (or lack of quality) that could be endearing, if Wilson's performance weren't so nihilistically dull, and if there were somebody in the picture who had a soul. show more

  • A giddily over-the-top, super-entertaining goof on the Everyman crimefighter flick written and directed with evident relish by James Gunn. show more

  • Ultimately the movie ridicules the culture that compels what Cedric the Entertainer calls grown-ass men to dress up like comic-book characters, as well as the Christian attempts to co-opt that culture. show more

    interesting and disturbing movie, worth watching not only because it is entertaining but really good acting, and Ellen page looks really hot in her sidekick outfit!

    Rainn Wilson from the office wasn\'t bad as the main character in this movie and of course ellen page was cute as usual. All and all, good movie. Wasn\'t expecting it to be good. Reminded me of a little bit of kick ass in a way.
