Kick-Ass Review

Premise:
Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) is the average high school nerd who's a big fan of comic books. Deciding to take action in his crime filled neighborhood, Dave dons a swimsuit and a pair of batons and decides he's going to clean up some scum. Well Dave gets stabbed in the opening minutes of the movie trying this, but the rest of his attempts turn out much better, especially as he meets fellow superheros Red Mist (McLovin. I don't care what his real name is.), Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and Hit-Girl.


Standouts:
The action, the plot, the comedy and the drama are all top notch. If you've ever watched a movie like Kill Bill with insane stunts and crazy violence and wondered "how can society as a whole ever, EVER beat this? Where do we go from here? I'll tell you where, nowhere. This is as good as it gets." Well you're wrong. As great as all that was, this is the next step. Can't possibly ask for more.


My Highlights:
Kick-Ass's three-on-one brawl, anything ever said by Hit-Girl's adorable eleven year old mouth, and anything ever done by Hit-Girl.


Overall Rating:
There's no words to describe the awesomeness of this movie. 5*'s out of 5. You don't need to be a comic book fan to love this movie, you just have to not be stupid. It's getting a lot of hype, and it's living up to it.


When You Should See It:
Yesterday. As soon as you stop reading this blog. Whenever you get the time. Seriously. If you have to mow lawns, shovel driveways, clean gutters, babysit. Do whatcha gotta do. See this movie. I will say its worth the $10+ to see through legal means.
