Plot: A simple question;, “How come nobody’s ever tried to be a superhero?” drives Dave Lizewski - ordinary New York teenager and rabid comic-book geek, to try and become a vigilante, calling himself Kick-Ass.
He soon finds an answer to his own question: because it is dangerous.
Surprisingly, Kick-Ass quickly becomes a sensation, making headlines. But the smooth ride does not go on forever, because the bad guys are not letting anyone getting their way, certainly not a fake superhero.
But he is not alone, and from an unexpected direction, he receives help.
Verdict: a perfect blend of comics and action, comedy and thrill. This movie is a must watch, for its stimulating visual style, action and capability to thrill and shock you at the same time.
