A rather ‘teeny’ ‘superhero’ movie. Actually Dave is not a superhero. He is just a comic-loving-nerd who gets the idea of buying himself a suit and try to be a superhero. Since he has no ‘superpowers’ he gets his ass kicked himself.
People do pick up his effort to do something about the downfall of society, so in spite of everything he becomes a hero. Yet there are better equipped crime fighters out there in the form the a great Nicholas Cage (as Damon Macready) and his daughter.
There were not the cartoon effects that I expected and overall “Kick-Ass” is but a teen action movie.
