Movie Summary

Matthew Vaughn
Kick-Ass is a 2010 super-hero/comedy film starring Aaron Johnson as Dave Lizewski as a young boy who decides to become a real-life super-hero. Dave is brutally mugged in his first attempt at crime fighting, which results in metal plates being put in his body as well as giving him an increased pain threshold. When he returns to school, his school crush Katie Deuxma (Lyndsy Fonseca) is interested in him because she thinks he is gay. He keeps this up in order to spend time with her. He has also resumed crime fighting, thwarting one crime that is filmed and put on giving him the name "Kick-Ass". Katie tells Dave she is being harassed so Kick-Ass has to save her. Kick-Ass, however, is captured in the heroic attempt. Only to be rescued by another real-life super hero Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) and Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage). It turns out Big Daddy is a former cop framed by D'Amico and that he would like to work with Kick-Ass. D'Amico vows to take down the entire team, enlisting his son Chris (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) to become a villain known as Red Mist. After an attack from Red Mist and his gang, our heroes are badly injured. Kick-Ass wants Hit-Girl to quit, but she follows her father and Kick-Ass agrees to help. They go on one last mission to defeat the Red Mist and D'Amico and a huge shootout ensues. They defeat the bad guys and a new generation of real-life superheroes crops up.moreless

    Ms. Moretz is by far the best thing about the film: she holds the screen as gracefully as she executes a running back flip.
