I Can't Read Your Mind. But I Can Kick Your Ass.
|"How come nobody's ever tried to be a superhero?" When Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) -- ordinary New York teenager and rabid comic-book geek -- dons a green-and-yellow Internet-bought wetsuit to become the no-nonsense vigilante Kick-Ass, he soon finds an answer to his own question: because it hurts. But, over coming all the odds, the eager yet inexperienced Dave quickly becomes a phenomenon, capturing the imagination of the public. However, he's not the only superhero out there -- the fearless and highly trained father-daughter crime-fighting duo, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz), have been slowly but surely taking down the criminal empire of local mafioso Frank D'Amico (Mark Strong). And, as Kick-Ass gets drawn into their no-holds-barred world of bullets and bloodletting with Frank's son Chris (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), now reborn as Kick-Ass's arch-nemesis Red Mist, the stage is set for a final showdown between the forces of good and evil, in which the DIY hero will have to live up to his name. Or die trying...|
"Kick-Ass moves with such bloody assurance that you'd be forgiven for not seeing how smart it is. But smart it is. Smart, important and deadly. Richard Corliss, Time Magazine
Editor's NoteAdapted from Mark Millar's hyper-violent comic book of the same name, director Matthew Vaughn's (LAYER CAKE) vigilante superhero film tells the tale of an average New York teenager who decides to don a costume and fight crime. Comic book geek Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) may not have good coordination or special powers, but that doesn't mean he isn't a fully capable crime fighter. After purchasing a flashy wet suit on the Internet, Dave starts busting up baddies with nothing but brute force. He calls himself Kick-Ass, and he can take a beating as good as he can dish one out. Before long, Kick-Ass has become a local sensation, and others are following his lead. Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) are a father-daughter crime-fighting duo who have set their sights on local mob heavy Frank D'Amico (Mark Strong). They're doing a decent job of dismantling Frank's sizable underworld empire when Kick-Ass gets drawn into the fray. But Frank's men play rough, and his son, Chris (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), is about to become Kick-Ass' very first arch nemesis. When Chris assumes the persona of Red Mist, the stage is set for a superhero showdown that could spell the end of Kick-Ass once and for all.

|Kick-Ass decidedly does not. The superhero action/teen comedy smash-up tries its best to dabble in the worlds of ultra-violence and suggestive snark about equally, but it has a hard time excelling at either. It’s got plenty of examples of both, but aside from a few impressive set pieces, the film feels curiously underwhelming. It doesn’t kick ass so much as gently nudges it. Director Matthew Vaughn adapts the Mark Millar comic book capably, giving the film a candy-colored look that often contrasts sharply with violence that is fairly non-stylized as far as these types of films go. That incongruity works though, adding some gravity to the proceedings....read the full review|
