Kick Ass (comedy, action) comes out on DVD this August. It's worth checking out. The Plot: One day, a geeky teenage boy asks his friends "why don't people just become superheros". He orders a suit and promptly gets his ass kicked by thugs (really badly).
He doesn't give up, though, and, after someone films him tussling with some criminals to prevent a beating, the video goes viral and the kid, calling himself "Kick Ass" becomes a media sensation.
That leads him to the violent father-daughter crime fighting duo HitGirl and BigDaddy and things get over-the-top. For example, there's a scene where BigDaddy (the father) is training his 10-year old daughter, HitGirl, to use a flak-jacket -- by firing actual rounds into her chest. So wrong, but very funny. Nicholas Cage plays BigDaddy.
The plot moves along nicely, and holds together, inspite of the surprises. There are even some touching scenes that make it a well rounded flick. Kick Ass gets good reviews from most. The only thing that seems to bother critics is the HitGirl character. It is a little shocking, given the amount of killing she does, but, I think the point is to make you laugh. It works. There are many LOL moments. Recommended.
