The costumed high-school hero Kick-Ass joins with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume. Meanwhile, the Red Mist plots an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows.
Chloë Grace Moretz,
The highly skilled Federale Machete is hired by some unsavory types to assassinate a senator. But just as he's about to take the shot, he notices someone aiming at him and realizes he's been set up. He barely survives the sniper's bullet, and is soon out for revenge on his former employers, with the reluctant assistance of his brother Cheech Marin, who has become a priest and taken a vow of nonviolence. If you hire him to take out the bad guys, make sure the bad guys aren't you! Written by
When Senator McLaughlin (Robert De Niro) carjacks the taxi, the registration sticker clearly expired in 2008. Most of the other cars stickers in this movie didn't expire until 2010. This means the taxi would have been operating illegally. See more »

We're federal agents, not martyrs. This is suicide. She's just another kidnap victim.

What makes her special? Because she's a witness against Torrez? He probably has her locked up, drugged our of her mind. We don't have to do this!
If not us, then who?

When I heard they were making this film, I found it to be a bit ridiculous. If it weren't for the positive reviews, I wouldn't have watched it, hence why I should do this film a favor and write a review to persuade others to give it a chance.
If any of the actors on the cast list intrigue you, you'll love this film, particularly Danny Trejo, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez. Steven Seagal and Lohan do have roles, but they aren't significant and they are well done.
Enjoy this film for what it is, it shouldn't really be classified as a comedy though. It's a great film through and through, highly enjoyable from start to finish.
The thing I enjoyed most about this film is that there aren't many American films centered around Mexico just for the hell of it, but this one is and it delivers! Great film, great acting, and Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba are gorgeous!
Although some might dislike the style of the film, if you enjoyed From Dusk 'Till Dawn, Grindhouse (Plant Terror, Death Proof), and violence from Sin City, you'll enjoy this film. -Robert Rodriguez style to sum it up-
