After his wife leaves him for a drug-dealing scumbag, Frank D'Arbo decides that his miserable life has meaning after all and he transforms into the Crimson Bolt. He metes out justice, in increasingly psychopathic fashion, to those he feels deserve punishment. This movie was a big rip-off of kick-ass and this movie is not funny more like messed up.

Maybe I just like violence, but there's something about a masked Rainn Wilson hitting random strangers with a pipe wrench that just makes me smile. The ending was actually quite moving considering all the violence that preceded it. The entire film was quite a nice - like Kick-Ass if the main character was an adult.

I thought that in some areas it could have been better. And, I'm not sure what to think of the Ellen Page rape scene.

Strange dark comedy, with a tender side. It's very violent, sometimes irreverent, slightly depressing and also endearing. This weird mix of elements somehow works and provides an experience that I found to be fun.

Super review

Frank Darbo (Rainn Wilson) is a cook whose wife, Sarah (Liv Tyler), was stolen by the drug dealing boss Jacques (Kevin Bacon). He has a revelation and a comic-book salesgirl named Libby (Ellen Page) helps him out with his personal mission. A good dark comedy with nice messages but imperfectly represented onscreen. The writer-director admits he wrote the project the time Kick-Ass was being created. More humorous but much darker with a bitter conclusion. Aside from the unlikable characters (namely Sarah), weird apparitions of Frank and a miscast in Bacon as the protagonist, its still an entertaining graphic violent comedy crime flick worth viewing. Soundtrack was inserted perfectly in certain scenes and screenplay effective. Super is definitely worth watching for some laughable scene...
