Dave Lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan with a few friends and who lives alone with his father. His life is not very difficult and his personal trials not that overwhelming. However, one day he makes the simple decision to become a super-hero even though he has no powers or training.Written by

Chloë Grace Moretz trained extensively with a Toronto circus school before filming began so that she could do most of her own stunts. See more »
In close-ups, none of the vehicles have New York inspection stickers, which should be in the left-hand corner of the windshield, or registration stickers, which should be next to the inspection sticker. See more »
I always wondered why nobody did it before me. I mean, all those comic books, movies, TV shows. You think that one eccentric loner would've made himself a costume. I mean, is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices so thrilling that I'm the only one who fantasized about this? Come on, be honest with yourself. At some point in our lives we all wanna be a superhero.
That's not me,by the way. That's some Armenia guy with a history of mental health problems.

Good but I'd rather have a Big Daddy and Hit girl Movie!
The first time I saw this film I was a bit disappointed I mean I loved the Big Daddy and Hit girl parts of the story I just didn't like the Kickass story all that much. His fight scenes were good but I just didn't care for the character or his group of friends the way I did for Big Daddy and Hit girl.
The second time watching it he did grow on me more but that could be because in the time between veiwings I read both Kickass graphic novels, so now this film is quite near the top of my fave comic book films (The Dark Knight, Sin City, Watchmen, X-men First class, Scott Pilgrimm Versus The World, The Crow).
This film did something something I thought o film could....it made Nicolas Cage cool again! 7/10
