Synopsis

KICK-ASS tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name—Kick-Ass—assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There's only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers whatsoever.

His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes—including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage)—and forges a friendship with another fledgling crimefighter, Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But thanks to the scheming of a local mob boss Frank D'Amico (Mark Strong), that new alliance will be put to the test.

  • 5 stars "Looking through these reviews there are many pans that say "Shameful film geared toward children." These reviews were all obviously written by one disgruntled prude. This was a fun and energetic actioner and it is NOT geared toward children. It's a cool flick for cool people. Uncool people can always watch movies like GOD'S NOT DEAD or some such thing."
  • 5 stars "Fantastic movie!! Great to watch and very funny! Having said that if you are easily offended (language/violence) then you should steer clear. If not, sit back and enjoy an excellent performance from Nicolas Cage as Big Daddy, who, for those of you who can remember the original Batman tv series will certainly bring a smile to your face! Also, Chloe Moretz is awesome as Hit Girl, certainly has a great future ahead of her! So, if you can sit back and enjoy a tongue in cheek movie without being easily offended, then dig out the popcorn and your favorite drink and enjoy!"
