'Super'

Zap2It

Pretty much the grown-up version of "Kick-Ass," this dark, well-cast comedy stars Rainn Wilson ("The Office") as a self-styled superhero who hits the streets as the Crimson Bolt after his ex-drug addict wife (Liv Tyler) runs off with a dealer (Kevin Bacon).

A would-be sidekick named Boltie (Ellen Page, "Inception") helps him in his quest to bring down the spouse stealer as well as other assorted felons encountered along the way. Nathan Fillion ("Castle"), Zach Gilford ("Friday Night Lights") and former "Greatest American Hero" William Katt also are featured. *** (R: AS, P, GV) (Also on Blu-ray)
