    The life of Dave Lizewski is one of scarce problems; his day to day actions rarely stray from reading the comic books that he loves oh so much. Dave has a nice life and is content with it until the day he decides to change, he decides to make a difference with his life, he decides to become a Superhero!

    Dave’s life suddenly changes when he walks out of his house clad with superhero mask and a decorative baseball bat, the only problem with Dave being a superhero... he has no powers. But like all good comic book readers, this doesn’t matter to Dave; his dream will not be swayed just because he lacks the skills of your everyday superhero.

    Based on the violent comic tale of Mark Millar comes Kick Ass "I can't read your mind. But I can kick your ass". Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake) has adapted this tale along with Marv Films production. Aaron Johnson stars as Dave Lizewski AKA Kick-Ass, the crime-fighting teen. Lyndsy Fonseca co-stars as the character's object of desire, with Nicolas Cage also appearing as an ex-cop whose hatred of a drug lord forces him to train his daughter to be a lethal vigilante.

Take Control!

Watched Kick Ass first on Sky, and I loved it so much. Geeky boy becomes "Superhero" with a twist! Nicholas Cage as a "Batman" type character, and Chloe Moretz is equally brilliant as his daughter. Fantastic sound track adds to the overall value - I have watched this over and over again. Awesome....KICK ASS!

Does What It Says in the Title!

First of all, not everyone will like or love Kick-Ass. If you've never read a comic-book or prefer to sip some afternoon tea, whilst watching trashy daytime TV, then read no further. After the slew of Tween garbage from Stephanie Meyer, this is the opposite in every way, shape & form. What we have here (thanks to Scotsman Mark Millar & hot-shot John Romita Jr) is Attitude! What I love about Kick-Ass, is that the sub-text which was clearly missing in the graphic novel, is nicely filled-in for us on the big screen. In fairness, some things have been changed, but this is the occupational hazard of comic-to-screen adaptations, right? Chloe Moretz as Hit-Girl: On various forums, doe-eyed girls are cooing about how Bella Swan is the role model for girls, really? She's a zero compared to Moretz's Mindy Macready! I'm talking about a Butterfly Knife-wielding-John-Woo-action-girl, letting off ballistic steam, and does so with furious gusto! Mark Strong as Frank D'Amico turns in another faultless performance, and unlike the God awful Bad Boys (the Will Smith one), where we are subjected to a painful comedy skit with the film's stars; it forgets we need to see more of the villain! And that's why I am so glad, Mark gets 50% screen time and makes the most of it. He has a great feeling for dark comedy and does a great, old school American accent. Nic Cage has not always been a favourite actor of mine, but whenever I hear about one of THOSE performances, you have to be curious. And here, the credit goes to Cage for his take on Big Daddy and Matthew Vaughn (the director) for allowing him to do so. We don't get Castor Troy from Face-Off, but what we do get is someone who clearly loves comics & Adam West from the 1960s Batman. Will there be a sequel? Maybe, but can definitely see a Hit-Girl franchise in the works, if only for Chloe Moretz to throw knifes at the bad guys! I'm in Heaven dudes & dudettes!

Hits the spot

This surprise of a movie, must rate up there as one of, if not the best movie of the year! There has been controversy largely due to the violence associated with the character 'hit girl', however a select few reviewers have praised the movie and I certainly agree. All the performances are strong Aaron Johnson is convincing as the eponymous 'Kick Ass' and great performances all round from the cast especially Nick Cage as the doting father and avenging angel... in fact the weakest performance comes surprisingly from Mark Strong, who is normally good in most things, but takes a bit of convincing as the crime boss. The movie has great action scenes, very believable, there is humour, dark humour and without giving anything away watch out for the scene involving the microwave oven!, and there is a real sense of cheering the characters on in the brilliantly staged finale, which almost leaves you cheering - pure entertainment! This is easily one if not the best comic/graphic novel adaptations, the most enjoyable since Sin City. I'd say this is a must see movie, and one which you can easily return to for a second, third watch. One to own on Bluray or DVD

Slick Ass

I've read a lot of criticism of this move prior to seeing it, but equally there were a few astute reviews which seemed to 'get this movie' and heap what I would agree deserved praise. This is pure entertainment, at times tongue in cheek, great action scenes, an almost falirytale/realism feel... and great acting for the most part. The main character 'kick Ass' tends to get his fair share of this happening to him, gives a great and believable performance, hit girl, is equally good (her role was one that seemed to attract a lot of the criticism) and Nick Cage is really excellent. The weakest link surprisingly is Mark Strong.. normally good in many uk productions, he doesn't quite pull his character off. There are many truly memorable scenes, which I don't want to ruin, and under the surface on occasion some sort of message, but this never gets in the way of the storyline and the action. The dialogue is great also and all through the movie I found myself really getting on side with the characters, with a smile was never far from my face.. even allowing for some gut wrenching scenes. This is easily one if not my film of the year and a film you can return to and watch and enjoy again and again, a must see movie and one to own!

What do you want?

Comedy? Action? Pathos? Romance? Satire? It's all here baby! My favourite film of the year probably. Well, apart from Inception. Obviously!
