Seriously, great movie. Story follows hapless nothing Dave as he dons a costumes and fights crime to embarrassing results. Also entering the show are Hit Girl and Big Daddy who skip the embarrassing jump right to the results. Funny and quasi realistic (Kick-Ass’s first crime fighting adventure sends him to the hospital). I eagerly await the inevitable sequel.
Huge stand out performance by Chloe Moretz who literally steals every scene she’s in as Hit Girl. Swords, guns, flashlights even, this pint-sized lil’ ninja will kill you with relish any number of ways. One paticular exchange bu Kick-Ass’s friends upon seeing her in action made the audience laugh out loud:
”I think I’m in love.”
”Dude, she’s like 11.”
”I’ll wait for her.”
While I personally didn’t get any creepy vibes with her (I was ogling Lyndsy Fonseca, Kick'-Ass’s GF), here’s to hoping her career follows Natalie Portman and not Lindsay Lohan.
