Ordinary teenager and rabid comic-book geek Dave Lizewski captures the imagination of the public when he becomes the no-nonsense vigilante, Kick-Ass. After he teams up with the fearless father-daughter crime-fighting duo, Big Daddy and Hit-Girl, the three work together to take down the criminal empire of local Mafioso Frank D'Amico. But when D'Amico's son Chris is reborn as Red Mist, the showdown between the forces of good and evil will force Kick-Ass to live up to his name, or die trying.

This is a 2010 British-American superhero film based on the comic book of the same name by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr.
It tells the story of an ordinary teenager, Dave Lizewski, who sets out to become a real-life superhero, calling himself "Kick-Ass".
Dave gets caught up in a bigger fight when he meets Big Daddy, a former cop who, in his quest to bring down the crime boss Frank D'Amico and his son, has trained his eleven-year-old daughter to be the ruthless vigilante Hit-Girl.
Even with suspension of disbelief, this film is a total waste of my time and one of the worst films I've ever seen in my life.
I thought that Hit-girl was dead once, but she appears again in the scene of the most violent and ruthless torture.
This unbelievable, irrational, illogical and unnatural rebirth made me stop watching the film.

Move over Kick-Ass, consensus is that Hit-Girl is the star of the show. Super stunts and clever story with some but not too much geeky humor.

I really liked this silly little film.
It's not just a TEEN flick.

Loved it! I'm an older(early 60's) guy but I thought Hit Girl was awesome, punching-out those older dudes. Way to go! Of course, the story line was a toss-away but hey, that wasn't the point. It's all fantasy anyway, and I thought it did a great job of showcasing some great moviemaking skills.

I won't lie when i say i hesitated about seeing this movie. I thought it would be kind of corny even though i have read good reviews and my friend also said she read the same. So, i ventured out to find this movie on a weekday and play it on my HOMETHEATER! I can't believe the young man who's learning to be a super hero called "Kick- Ass" gets his booty kicked severly. And when i least expected it, he gets creamed by a vehicle! Damn!! I was not expecting that to happen while watching this. I was expecting light comedy and teenage curiosity. This movie caught me off guard!!! I also wasn't expecting Mr. Cage to be an unuasual crime fighter along with his very talented daughter,Hit Girl. This film was filled with many surprises that had me from the get go. Very good! Sound wise, it wasn't too shabby. There were some scenes that rocked as far as audio, but i believe most of the movie was "all around sound." This is the kind of movie i could watch more than once and it's a part of my collection. I really enjoyed this movie and i'm giving it 5 stars!!!!! For a story i thought would be corny and it wasn't, a bad guy and his son, "Hit Girl", "Big Daddy", and a smile on my face. Chopped lamb on yellow rice, lettuce, tomatoes, a few cucumbers, and lemmon aide.

I am not really into the whole superhero thing but hubby wanted me to watch this before we saw Kick-Ass 2. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. And yes, Hit Girl is awesome in this movie.

OMG! Im straight but in love with HIT GIRL! The movie should have had her as the lead. Kick ass was cool too, but HIT GIRL ROCKED! Im not into comics and only rented to see what all the talk was about but now I cant wait to get my hands on KICK ASS 2.

A pulply comic book movie that tries to be tongue-in-cheek, but is mostly just a dumb, sub-Tarantino effort that thinks it's edgy by playing violence for laughs and having a kid swear. The cast (aside from Nic Cage, who is on his own planet) makes it somewhat worthwhile.

Sexual Content: Teen masturbation, teen sex; while nothing is overtly shown, the references, frames, and what you do see leaves no doubt about what is going on or is about to happen.

Violence: Adults, teens, and an 11-year-old are all shown being in violent situations, both on the receiving end and on the giving end. Some were violently beat up, some were shot, some were knifed, and some were even set on fire.

Geek A: Yeah! I think I'm in love with her, dude.
Geek B: She looks like she's about 11 years old but...

Geek A: I can wait! I solemnly vow to save myself for her.
Geek B: I can see how that would be really difficult for you.

Damon Macready: So... Have you thought a little more about what you might want for your birthday?

Mindy Macready: Can I get a puppy?

Damon Macready: [surprised] You wanna get a dog?

Mindy Macready: Yeah, a cuddly fluffy one, and a Bratz movie-star make over Sasha!

[Damon is stunned]

Mindy Macready: [laughs] I'm just fucking with you Daddy! Look, I'd love a Benchmade model 42 butterfly knife.

Damon Macready: [relieved] Oh, child... You always knock me for a loop!

Dave Lizewski: Jesus, guys, doesn't it bug you? Like thousand of people wanna be Paris Hilton and nobody wants to be Spiderman.
Marty: Yeah, what's with that? She has like no tits at all.
Todd: Maybe it's the porn tape, he doesn't have a porn tape.
Marty: You guys never saw "One Night In Spiderman"?

Dave Lizewski: I always wondered why no-one did it before me. I mean, all those comic books, movies, TV shows... you think that one eccentric loner would've made himself a costume. I mean, is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices so thrilling that I'm the only one who fantasized about this? Come on, be honest with yourself, at some point in our lives we all wanna be a superhero.

Dave Lizewski/Kick-Ass (narration/voiceover): "In the world I lived in, heroes only existed in comic books. And I guess that'd be okay, if bad guys were make-believe too, but they're not."
