Movie Info

Using his love for comics as inspiration, teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) decides to reinvent himself as a superhero -- despite a complete lack of special powers. Dave dons a costume, dubs himself "Kick-Ass," and gets to work fighting crime. He joins forces with the father/daughter vigilante team of Big Daddy and Hit Girl, then befriends another fledgling crime-fighter called Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), but a scheming mobster soon puts their alliance to the test.

Audience Reviews for Kick-Ass

    A great adaptation of the source material makes for a very entertaining and violent ride. Begs the question, what would a superhero be like in real life? If you dig violent action and can handle a lot of profanity, this movie could be for you. Chloe Grace Moretz without question steals the show in this one.

    The name of the movie tells you my opinion of the film! Loaded with a lot of humor, style and surprisingly good performances Kick-Ass is totally worth your time to watch and has a lot of replay value! Check it out!

    If you aren't too put off by heaps of violence, this is a fun action flick.

    It made me depressed, the characters are all retarded and flimsy. I like the concept, but the characters are horrible and acting were so bad, I really didn't like any of the actors. The profanity was totally distasteful, I don't even understand why it was used, it just made the film stupid. However, the redeeming quality was the editing and cinematography. If you are not a fan of genre defying, hyper action films then this is really not your cup of tea. Cliche, cliches everywhere. The jokes were lame, I really just doesn't like it, the film is too unrealistic and preposterous. I appreciate what the film is about but I didn't like the ensemble.
