KICK-ASS by Matthew Vaughn


kick-ass - embitterment level - disappointment level
Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) is a very ordinary guy whose only ‘superpower’ is to be invisible to girls. But there is a nagging question going through his mind: Why did never anybody dress up as a costumed vigilante and went out there on the streets, protecting the good people and catching the bad? ‘Because they would get their ass kicked’ is what his geeky friends tell him. And he soon finds out they were totally right when he first attempts to prevent a crime – he gets his ass kicked, stabbed and hit by a car. But the extensive surgery he needs has some advantages – due to nerve damages Dave’s pain perception is reduced, and a lot of metal reinforces his bones now (“… like Wolverine!”). And so, after his recovery, Dave goes crime-busting again. This time, a guy films his fight against three thugs with his mobile phone and “Kick-Ass” becomes an internet phenomenon. But when Dave meets fellow costumed vigilantes “Big Daddy” (Nicolas Cage) and “Hit-Girl” (Chloe Moretz) things become really serious.

Dave Lizewski: With no power, comes no responsibility. Except, *that* wasn’t true.

Superhero movie, coming-of-age story, teen comedy, action film, drama, parody – “Kick-Ass” blends all genres into something that can only be called “tarantinoesque”, including the choice of music (Ennio Morricone for the showdown) and the occasional ultra-violence. The cast is in an excellent mood, with 13-year-old Chloe Moretz stealing each scene she is in. And Nicolas Cage can finally play a superhero – not Superman, but at least a Batman-lookalike in a cheap costume … with one major difference to the real Batman: he uses guns (of any calibre), and he leaves corpses behind whereever he shows up.
This movie kicks ass!
Attention: Bad language and extremely violent scenes – this is not a movie for kids!

Thug: The fuck is wrong with you, man? You’d rather die for some piece of shit that you don’t even fucking know?
“Kick-Ass”: The three assholes, laying into one guy while everybody else watches? And you wanna know what’s wrong with me? Yeah, I’d rather die… so bring it on!
