I rarely make threads.. But I'm slightly confused about what to think of this movie.
For anyone who hasn't heard of it it's about a regular slightly off guy who's drug addict wife leaves him for a drug dealer. He then creates a Superhero that fights crime to fight evil and ultimately try and get his wife back. Along the way a Comic Book store clerk befriends him and joins him in his fight against crime.
It's darker than Kickass. That's a good way to start this.. Alot of things happen in this movie that makes me question what's going on is really worth it or has a point.
I was really enjoying this even though It was getting really strange and confusing..but in a dark indy comedy kind of way. Then in the final scenes Ellen Pages character gets killed.. Would be fine, we've been given an emotional attachment to her and it serves to push Rain Wilsons character into the final standoff.. But really..Half her face? To me that took away the sadness and brought about more disgust.. Especially with less realistic violence happening all around them. A simple bullet wound wouldn't have worked?
That and I can't say I enjoyed the ending.. The only one who walks away happy is the drug addict wife who left Rain Wilson in the first place.. Frank( the character) Gets a friggin rabbit.
Soo.. the first 3/4 of the movie I liked and the ending is now going to send me to bed sad and confused as to whether I should like this movie or not.
