Aro Favourite Kick-Ass


USA 2010, 117 minutes
Dir. Matthew Vaughn
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Action/Adventure, Science Fiction, Comedy

Topics: Superheroes.


Aroview: Adapted from the kick-ass graphic novel, this gleeful bone-cruncher portrays a world in which wannabe superheroes don costumes and fight bad guys despite an absence of superpowers.

Structured around a series of massive brawls, Dir. Vaughn carries this along at a racy, anarchic pace, yet the characters give it its beating heart - Aaron Johnston and Christopher Mintz-Plasse make great geeks-turned-geeks-in-spandex, and Nicolas Cage is at a career-high(!) as the cop-turned-anti-hero, ‘Big Daddy’. It is a young Chloe Moretz as Big Daddy’s daughter, however, who steals the show - her steely, smack-talking ‘Hit Girl’ right up there with the most memorable child characters of all time.
