Kick-Ass: Directed by Matthew Vaughn. With Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Garrett M. Brown, Evan Peters, Deborah Twiss. Dave Lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a superhero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so.
Featuring several references to “myspace” and a movie named “The Spirit 3”, this is a completely out of time movies that has no real references to the real world, including computer stuff like “I rerouted your IP address”, which is a complete non-sense phrase when it comes to hacking a PC, but it is what it is, and what it is is a completely enjoyably campy comic book adaptation in which Nick Cage steals every scene he’s in, Chloe Grace Moretz upstages him every time she shares the screen with him, and the guy that will later play Quicksilver shows up for like 4 scenes. It’s a masterclass in comic book to movie adaptations, and I wish that more of those would be like this.
