When sad-sack loser Frank (Rainn Wilson) sees his ex-addict wife (Liv Tyler) willingly snatched by a seductive drug dealer (Kevin Bacon), he finds himself bereft and wholly unable to cope. But soon he decides to fight back under the guise of a DIY superhero called Crimson Bolt. With a hand-made suit, a wrench, and a crazed sidekick named Boltie (Ellen Page), the Crimson Bolt beats his way through the mean streets of crime in hopes of saving his wife. The rules were written a long time ago: You are not supposed to molest children, cut lines or key cars; if you do, prepare to face the wrath of the Crimson Bolt!

  • 5 stars "Good movie! Boltie was yummy."
  • 1 star "This was terrible. I thought it would be a querky comedy you could expect from Rainn but instead it was extremely unsettling with its humour mixed with outragous violence. Don't waste your money. This one will be lucky if it makes it to cable."
