If you want to know what it is like to get a message from god to go forth and become a crime fighter, take a look at this very weird clip from Rainn Wilson’s Super.

In Super, Frank’s (Wilson) wife leaves him for a seductive, psychopathic drug dealer (Kevin Bacon), Frank is transformed and the Crimson Bolt is born. 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 (Liv Tyler). 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!

    I know this is probably going to be bad-good, but I like Ellen Page, I like Rainn Wilson, I like Kevin Bacon, and the nature of the film is right up my alley.

    That is, perhaps, the most weird thing I’ve seen since “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”.
