  • Action, Comedy
  • 1h 57m

Aaron Johnson plays Dave Lizewski, a high school geek who, in an attempt to provide meaning for his life, decides to become a superhero. Ordering a wet suit off the Internet and arming himself with a pair of batons, Dave takes to the streets as Kick-Ass — the world’s first official superhero (even if he doesn’t officially have superpowers). Along for the journey are a trio of fellow vigilantes: Hit Girl, a cute-as-a-button pre-teen girl played by Chloe Moretz (LET ME IN, SUSPIRIA) who will gladly rip your head off and show it to you; Big Daddy, a former cop and Hit Girl’s father played by Nic Cage in a weird amalgam of Greg Brady and Adam West’s Batman; and Red Mist, an even bigger dork then Lizewski played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse (SUPERBAD).

Directed by Matthew Vaughan (LAYER CAKE), KICK-ASS is a colorful, ultra-violent comedy based on the comic book by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr.
