Kick-Ass

Rated R 117 min. 2010

A teenage noodnik (Aaron Johnson) buys a costume and turns himself into a crime-fighting superhero who doesn’t know how to fight. To his rescue come a cartoonist with a well-stocked arsenal (Nicolas Cage) and the cartoonist’s martial-arts-expert daughter (Chloe Moretz), a superhero herself. Director Matthew Vaughn, who adapted Mark Millar’s comic-book with writer Jane Goldman, captures the story’s frantic sense of irony, but smothers it in violence. After awhile that’s the only flavor that lingers. Christopher Mintz-Plasse does a nice job as Kick-Ass’ “rival,” Red Mist, the son of the movie’s mobster bad guy (Mark Strong). 118 minutes of fast-paced fun that will evaporate after viewing like a red mist (117 min.).
