Overview

Adapted 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.

Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "[An] action-filled and very funny flick....Vaughn delivers one rollicking and raucous set piece after another but never loses sight of the fun." - 03/13/2010 Box Office


5 stars out of 5 -- "A ridiculously entertaining, perfectly paced, ultra-violent cinematic rush that kicks the places other movies struggle to reach." - 04/01/2010 Empire


4 stars out of 5 -- "The choreography is gloriously intense....The use of music is inspired throughout..." - 05/01/2010 Uncut


"[A]n enjoyably supercharged and ultraviolent teen-rebel comic-book fantasy..." -- Grade: B+ - 05/01/2010 Entertainment Weekly


3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he mocking tone and off-kilter vibe set this film apart. It even has a hearty dose of charm, thanks mostly to the most outrageous performance by a child in recent memory." - 04/16/2010 USA Today


"Ms. Moretz is by far the best thing about the film: she holds the screen as gracefully as she executes a running back flip." - 04/16/2010 New York Times


"The film, based on the comic by Mark Millar and John S. Romita Jr., is grungily stylish and often funny..." - 04/16/2010 Wall Street Journal


"This shrewd mixture of slick comic-book mayhem, unmistakable sweetness and ear-splitting profanity is poised to be a popular culture phenomenon.... - 04/16/2010 Los Angeles Times


"Directed by Matthew Vaughn with verve and a crisp, color-saturated visual sense, KICK-ASS should delight fans of the original comics and garden-variety action junkies as well." - 04/16/2010 Washington Post


3 stars out of 4 -- "KICK-ASS might be the most fun two hours you'll spend in a movie theater. It delivers the darkly comic laughs as well as the jaw-dropping action..." - 04/15/2010 Premiere


3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] mosh pit of a comic-book movie that dares you to dive into its anarchy." - 04/29/2010 Rolling Stone


"KICK-ASS is an intelligent meta-comic that deploys familiar superheroic tropes and archetypes to explore all that is fractured and flawed in our decidedly non-super humanity." - 05/01/2010 Sight and Sound


4 stars out of 5 -- "All good, teen-savvy, pertinent stuff, spiked with laughs....Cage is a deadpan delight..." - 08/02/2010 Total Film
