Rainn Wilson and Elliot Page star in this dark comedy directed by James Gunn.
Mild-mannered Frank D'Arbo (Wilson) decides to enter the world of crime fighting superheroes when his wife, Sarah (Liv Tyler), leaves him for local drug dealer Jacques (Kevin Bacon).
Believing his wife will come back to him if he can only defeat Jacques and the rest of the city's lowlife, Frank morphs into The Crimson Bolt, complete with homemade costume and trusty pipe-wrench.
But just when Frank's entirely human exploits seem to be running out of steam, the unforeseen arrival of comic shop assistant Libby (Page), in the guise of sidekick Boltie, helps save the day.
