Every now and then you come across a quirky, independent comedy that, due to its comedic vibes and peculiar charm, leaves you with a sizable grin. Super is not one of those movies. At first I was hopeful, the cartoonish (possibly hand drawn) title sequence was fun and it set a tone that was very promising. But the setup was so bare, lacking largely in terms of character presentation. It sorely damaged the progression of the film, which didn’t pack a solid punch on its own. The cast may have been amusing, but the film itself was far from it.

Verdict: Forget It
