I Can't Read Your Mind. But I Can Kick Your Ass.
|Dave lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a super-hero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so.|
"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.

|To quote the main character in the latest attempt at a revisionist comic book movie, Kick-Ass, "Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?" Indeed, when you view this film's incredibly clever premise, which finds an ordinary kid trying to do extraordinary things (and more or less failing miserably), you see a million untapped 14-year-old daydreams come magically to life. Based on the Marvel title by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr., this story of champions and chumps, great deeds and glorified geek ambition makes for a terrific pre-Summer blockbuster. It's so much fun, in fact, it ought to be illegal....read the full review|
