If you liked Kick-Ass and thought it was brutally brilliant.. Super makes Kick-Ass look like "The Care Bears"
Fantastic film, so not what I expected!!!

Is this a comedy? Is it a story of coming to terms with very early middle age in the midst of a rather strange marital break up? Are there question marks with regard to a bizarre sex scene which appeared uncomfortably paedophilic in its portrayal? (I really do find scenes where young girls have sex with much older totally unattractive fat guys completely unbelievable, ridiculously stereotypical in cinema history and do nothing but massage older men's pathetic fantasies). And what's with the violence? I can get on with visceral expositions of really hard violence and cruelty where it is integral to the story but smashing people's heads in (sometimes repeatedly) with a monkey wrench for relatively modest criminal or anti social behavior is utterly pointless. I persevered to the end of the film so that I could justify my review of this generally nasty, vicious piece of work. Surprisingly there is some redemption at the end somewhat reminiscent of About Schmidt but otherwise I'll give this a pass. I was fully aware that violence was part of the film; I just couldn't see the point; it didn't seem to support what could have been quite an entertaining take on the faux-superhero genre.

This film is great fun, whilst it lasts, unfortunately it is only 85 minutes long which is disappointing.

Great humour and some great action, but the film comes across as pretty low budget compared to (inevitably) Kick-Ass. Kick-Ass is 2 hours long, has way more action and is more adrenalin pumping.

Not to say Super is slow, but its focus is more on character, whilst Kick-Ass is more action orientated. I do not understand why some reviewers are saying that the violence in Super is more extreme? It ain't and there is less of it, though it certainly has its moments. I would also have to say that Super is more 'real' than Kick-Ass, for example it doesn't have jetpacks with miniguns attached! Whilst Kick-Ass blurred the line between reality and comic books, Super remains firmly in reality and I do like that, Kick-Ass does go over the top occasionally...

If you like Kick-Ass you'll like this, both are good films. I think Kick-Ass offers more bang per buck (and not only because it is a third longer than Super), but the two films probably compliment each other pretty well. I could certainly imagine watching both with some mates over for a curry and beer.

Had some really funny bits, but was actually quite dark. Left me feeling underwhelmed. Still cant quite work out what it was about.

I bought this DVD based on recommendations on the Amazon site that said it was comparable to or better than the hilarious Kick Ass. Well, it isn't. It's about as funny and stylish as watching someone bash people in the face with a spanner. I'm not going to watch it a second time.

Me and my boyfriend watched this the other day, and was really excited to see it as we're a fan of Rainn Wilson from The Office, and are big fans of superhero movies, etc. I really don't know why everyone is comparing this to 'Kick Ass', as it's nothing like it, or anything close. I would say it's more like a poor mans version of Defendor, which was awesome, and Woody Harrelson was a much more likeable character than Rainns is.Trouble is this film came out about a year too late.
It was just too violent for the sake of it, not really adding to the plot,as if it was trying to be clever. and I hoped Ellen Page would bring something cool to the film, but her acting just looked forced, like she was ovderdoing it. I know that people think this is some kinda of indie flick, and for that reason alone will 'love' it, but check out Defendor, way better, similar, but much more engaging and heartwarming, not just mindless violence to cover up a lame plot..
Overall, quite dull, too violent, and not enough laughs for it to know what it wants to be. Ultimately a confusing mix of b budget retro grindhouse, pulp fiction and everything else...

Well, this is a decent attempt to follow in the footsteps of Kiss Ass, but with an amazing act to follow you have to be damn good to compete and unfortunately this aint!

Like several of the other reviewers, I'd say there's a clear link in the base idea between "Super" and "Kickass". Obviously, that idea is the "everyman" trying to become a "superhero" without any of a "gift of powers", a Batman/Iron Man R&D budget or even Batman/Shadow/Phantom martial arts skills.

Unfortunately, that link is that Super is therefore devoid of pretty much any originality, and then compounds that lack of originality by being, by turns, unfunny, petty-minded, and downright nasty.
