Kick Ass is a pretty damn awesome movie and mostly holds true to the comic book. The basic premise: a real superhero existing in a real New York City. An average high school comic book geek puts on the tights and decides to fight crime. He’s not very good at it, but he’s lucky and becomes a YouTube sensation.

The real standout in the movie is Hit Girl, the daughter/little girl sidekick of Nicholas Cage AKA: Big Daddy. Cage kicks some pretty major ass as well and probably would’ve made a decent Batman. McLovin also has a major role and without giving away the ending, he’ll be back if there is a sequel.

Sadly, box office was a little weak and the hype for this movie has been non-stop. I loved it, but ultimately I think the movie studio overdid. I mean, I’ve seen the trailer like 200 times and I’m not even looking for it.

Still, only Nicholas Cage was the big name in this movie, so there is a shot the young cast could come back for a sequel. Hit Girl was absolutely mesmerizing in the final action scene. Totally worth the price of admission.

I give Kick Ass 8.5 keggers out of 10. It’s a lot of fun and there is a ton of action.
