Review: James Gunn’s ‘Super’

Super proves that superhero films still have a lot of storytelling juice left in them. And all of those questions that superhero films deal with, about power and responsibility and the individual versus society, can still be asked in new and challenging ways. Make no mistake: this film is really over the top and liable to offend a lot of people. But if you enjoy South Park-style insanity and midnight movie weirdness, then this film will be your new favorite. And it’s a surprisingly sweet, moving film that will stick in your head long after you’ve stopped laughing at the madness.” — Charlie Jane Andrews, on the new movie from James Gunn.
