If parent groups aren’t protesting outside of theaters and filling out cable talk shows when “Kick Ass” opens April 16, 2010, I’m pretty sure it means we’re all going to hell. Meanwhile, if you happen to be in those theaters watching the movie, you’ll probably be laughing your ass off at Matthew Vaughn’s ultra violent comic book movie “Kick Ass”, an unapologetic, crude, hardcore, and balls to the wall movie where one of the film’s stars, Hit Girl slices and dices and curses her way through the film like a sailor with scurvy. Did I mention she’s not old enough to realize boys aren’t icky yet? Check out this latest “Kick Ass” red band trailer which spotlights the character Hit Girl. I’m guessing more will be coming out with the other characters. Until then…
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 the costumed adventurer Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage).
