Storyline

Frank Darrbo is a hapless fry cook. When his wife Sarah falls off the wagon and dumps him for Jacques, a drug dealer, Frank tries to get her back by reporting her kidnapped, grabbing her from Jacques' car, and wailing for her to return. After watching Christian TV and having a vision, he becomes a superhero to fight evil. He sews a costume, finds a weapon (a pipe wrench) and looks for crimes to stop. He has problems: his wrench inflicts real injury, so the cops want him for being a vigilante, his sense of boundaries is flawed, and Jacques' gang has guns. Libby, a clerk at a comic book store, becomes his sidekick, and it's time to go save Sarah. What chance do they have? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The role of Jacques was supposed to be played by an unspecified actor up until a week before shooting began. Gunn said "the guy was kind of AWOL. I just couldn't risk that personality type on this movie." Kevin Bacon stepped in as a last minute replacement. See more »

Goofs

After getting shot, Frank drives away and the shadow of the camera man is visible on the Crimson Bolt. The sun is on the other side (car has turned around) in the next shot in the car. See more »

My Hilarious Awesome Twisted Fantasies
28 July 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I love Rainn Wilson, he's a fantastic actor, and now with Ellen Page by his side, amazing!

This is the kind of movie where you laugh at the craziest stuff you've ever seen, and at the same time can feel a bit compassionate to the role who is played by Rainn. Ellen Page play the part as the sidekick to The Crimson Bolt, Boltie. She is full of energy all the time and nothing can stop her from having her fun. She is like the commercials for red bull, but it looks like she's always on red bull. And i was quite shocked when i saw that Andre Royo was starring in this movie, well known from The Wire, but he just had a small role.

A totally MUST SEE movie!
