Kick Ass (2010)

When it's over, I have to admit, when the movie first came out, I thought it was all kinda silly with a boy wearing a funky green suit and saving people, but after I read the comic, I was really blown away by the story and the inner thoughts of a teenager who wanted to "make his mark."  So, after the comic, I decided to watch the big screen version.  It was funny, violent, and cheesy at times, but still entertaining.   Nicholas Cage was great as Big Daddy, and newcomer, Chloe Moretz, was amazing as Hit-Girl.  Watching her jump, flip, and kick some serious butt was so much fun, especially since she's half the size.  British actor, Mark Strong, always makes a great baddie. 

My rating: 4.5 out of 5
