You see for me the first half hour or so suggested that it was going to be more provocative than it actually was, but it eventually just became a standard superhero story like countless others. As said, I didn't hate it - Hit Girl is an interesting creation, and that dark warehouse scene is truly impressive. I just think the story overall felt half-assed, and wasn't convinced it the controversial elements (which really weren't all that controversial) existed for any other reason than mere
shock value - which is a criticism I'd label at the abysmal Wanted comics too. Super, despite some annoyances, was much
more willing to critique the actions of its 'heroes' and the genre overall, and felt like a much bolder and more insightful film on the whole. And, in much more IMO terms, I also found it funnier.
