I knew this wouldn’t take long. The blue-print set in stone by Kick-Ass now spawns a copy-cat movie with an ordinary guy trying to be a super hero. Yet this movie seems more set in the real world than even that brilliantly realised movie. Frank (Rainne Wilson) has lost his recovering-drug-addict wife (Liv Tyler) to a local scum-bag gangster (Kevin Bacon), and following a vision, he turns himself into masked vigilante The Crimson Bolt, and sets about fighting crime. At first he gets his ass kicked, but soon he’s weilding a wrench and splitting heads (literally), eventually making the local news. This attracts the attention of comic-book store employee Libby (Ellen Page) who turns to Frank to become his side kick … Bolty.
