It shares many of the action and comedy beats of Kick-Ass, but Super is the smarter and more subversive of the two films — and the same goes for their trailers. Absent a high-budget gloss (and the helpful “notes” passed on from clueless suits), this story of two hapless citizen crime-fighters (Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page) mines humor both silly and mordant.
