  • 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.

  • Critic 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."
    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."
    Empire

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

    "[A]n enjoyably supercharged and ultraviolent teen-rebel comic-book fantasy..." -- Grade: B+
    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."
    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."
    New York Times

    "The film, based on the comic by Mark Millar and John S. Romita Jr., is grungily stylish and often funny..."
    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....
    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."
    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..."
    Premiere

    3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] mosh pit of a comic-book movie that dares you to dive into its anarchy."
    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."
    Sight and Sound

    4 stars out of 5 -- "All good, teen-savvy, pertinent stuff, spiked with laughs....Cage is a deadpan delight..."
