My Penny of View : Story began with Dave-an unnoticed high school boy who only have a few friends and loved comic books. One day, he made up his mind to become superhero through purchase the superhero suit on Internet but unfortunately he did not have any superpower or undergo any training. He named himself as Kick-Ass. After the first trial of being superhero to rescue the unfortunate, he has been admitted to hospital for few months and most of the bones replaced with titanium. He did not give up and he try again with cat search. During the search, he accidentally involved in gangster fight and he tried his best to protect the victim even he did not have abilities to fight. The whole fighting has been recorded and put on Internet, Kiss-Ass became famous and everyone wanted to be superhero too. What will going to happen to this brave superhero who doesn't have any skill at all?

The story kinda looks like a typical 'I want to be hero' story line. Everyone want to be famous and popular in different way. Nobody want to be an unnoticed person. Although the opening seems familiar, but the flow of the story a bit unexpected. Someone with a simple thinking but involve himself in complicated circumstances. One of the moral of the story is no pain no gain, if you want something you have to work for it.

Besides Kick-Ass, I think Big Daddy(Nicholas Cage) and Hit-Girl(Chloe Moretz) did a great job in the movie. The motive of Big Daddy gave training to Hit-Girl was to revenge for his dead wife. When Kick-Ass became popular, both of them decided to work together with Kiss-Ass to succeed the revenge plan.

The movie is entertaining and I think the version we watched still uncensored version and no subtitles yet. There were lots of 'F' words and the fighting was good. When Hit-Girl fought with the bad guys, the leg she chopped fly out. It was quite violent.

Rating :
★★★☆☆

@戏痞三赖 At first you will think "Why got such stupid fella think to be superhero without any power?" But when you continue to watch, you will get the movie quite funny and meaningful as well.
