A friend invited me to see Kick Ass and I went knowing nothing about the movie besides it was a comedy.  I love seeing movies that way.      I was drawn into the plot until the introduction of Hit Girl and the level of violence.  This 13-year old girl single handedly kills numerous grown men using a variety of weapons, laughing much of the time.      On one hand, sure, it was pretty cute to have a super hero girl.  On the other, it was too …

Chloe is a great actress and gives …

A stylish, ultra-violent superhero comedy that satirizes the entire genre. Kind of like "Kill Bill" meets Marvel Comics' greatest hits. =D
