Why hasn’t anybody ever actually tried to put on a superhero costume and fight crime? That’s the question Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) poses before his obsession with the idea drives him to do just that. When he becomes an internet phenomenon as the masked hero Kick-Ass, he inspires a crusading father-daughter team of highly competent badasses (Nicolas Cage, Chloe Grace Moretz) to follow his example as Big Daddy and Hit Girl, and soon their vendetta against a crime boss (Marc Strong) involves his spoiled son dressing up as the Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and an incredible amount of brutally fun fight scenes.
