Before I start, this review is being written 4 months after seeing the film. So… well, it will most likely be rubbish! That in mind let’s go…
Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), an ordinary high school kid in New York decides to don a costume and become a super hero despite the disadvantage of not having any special powers, strength or training. At first he gets his arse handed to him and ends up in hospital having metal plates insterted all over his body. When recovered he reinstates his alter ego, Kick Ass, and quickly becomes an internet sensation when he is filmed taking on some thugs outside a fast food place.
From what I remember, four months after watching the film, I liked it but I thought it was over-hyped. I really dislike it when a film is over sold. I seem to recall the posters for this film reading ‘YOUR NEW FAVORITE FILM!’ Well, no, it’s not.
I had also already seen the most controversial part of the film in a trailer months before the film came out so the shock had been taken out of it for me when I was sat in the cinema. In fact I think most of the best parts of the film had been shown in either teasers or trailers before the film was released.
I can’t really remember much more then this… over-hyped but thought it was alright really.
