"A brilliant twist on the everyman crime-fighter genre, as violent and human as it is funny" Empire
Frank (Rainn Wilson) is an average guy who starts dressing up as superhero The Crimson Bolt after his wife Sarah (Liv Tyler) leaves him for smooth-talking drug dealer, Jacques (Kevin Bacon). What Frank lacks in superpowers, he makes up for with a trusty wrench in his one-man war on petty criminals.
Powers or not, every superhero needs a sidekick. Enter Libby (Ellen Page), a cute psychopath working at the local comic book store. Transforming into "Boltie", Libby teams up with Frank to take Jacques down.
From the surprising imagination of writer-director James Gunn (Slither, Gardiens of the Galaxy) comes Bolt and Boltie, a crazed crime fighting duo here to save the day, or at least to beat you up.
