High school student Dave Lizewski leads a pretty unremarkable life – a life he eventually gets fed up with. Inspired by comic books, Dave decides to try his hand at being a superhero, but with no powers or training to speak of, all he has is a cheap costume and a desire to kick ass. Will that be enough?

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Village Voice by

Never as shocking as it thinks it is, as funny as it should be, or as engaged in cultural critique as it could be, Kick-Ass is half-assed.
100

Empire by Chris Hewitt (1)

A ridiculously entertaining, perfectly paced, ultra-violent cinematic rush that kicks the places other movies struggle to reach.
88

ReelViews by James Berardinelli

The best superhero movie since "The Dark Knight" (and far less serious in tone or approach), Kick-Ass earns its name in every way.
90

Variety by Joe Leydon

Equal parts audacious dark comedy, wish-fulfillment fantasy and over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek action-adventure.
80

Boxoffice Magazine by Pete Hammond

A clever movie premise based on an obscure comic book has been turned into, okay we’ll say it, a fanboy’s kick-ass wet dream of a movie that could be a surprise Spring smash.
