Thanks to Universal Pictures, Moviehole has 5 double in-season passes up for grabs to see ”Kick-Ass”, a film Moviehole’s Clint Morris says is ”vivacious, pacey, and choca-bloc with more than a few moments that’ll inevitably become highly-watched and oft-referenced cinematic moments”.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn (”Layer Cake”) and starring Aaron Johnson, Nicolas Cage, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, ”Kick-Ass” is a twisted, funny, high-octane adventure about a dimish youngster (Johnson) who decides he’s going to be a superhero. Easier said than done.
Kick-Ass tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name — Kick-Ass — assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers.
His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) – and forges a friendship with another fledging super hero, Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But thanks to the scheming of a local mob boss Frank D’Amico (Mark Strong), that new alliance will be put to the test.
