Film: Kick-Ass Click for more info

Film about a loser who decides to do something about all the bad people out there by dressing up as a superhero and generally getting his butt kicked. Kick-Ass's main pull is going against the grain when it comes to typical superhero lore; even our main protagonist complains about how unrealistic normal superhero stories are. Whether it succeeds in this or not probably depends on who's watching. For me, it all got a bit silly and, worse still, hypocritical toward the end.

But this film is definitely one to watch. Why? Because of Chloe Moretz's Mindy. I won't spoil anything here, but you can get a good idea of how ace her character is in the trailers. Frankly I'm not sure how they even got away with it, but hey, maybe I'm old fashioned like that.

A bit disappointing otherwise, but worth a look for Mindy alone.
