Popcorn Pick 4-16-10

Popcorn Pick

Watchmen meets Superbad. If that sounds intriguing to you, then Kick-Ass is probably right up your alley. This movie takes a popular movie concept- the comic book superhero film- and turns it on its head. The action comedy explores what happens in the real world when ordinary people don superhero costumes and start fighting for justice. It's raunchy, crude, and gory- R-rated territory where superheroes rarely tread. Nicolas Cage and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (forever McLovin) are second bananas to unknowns in the lead roles. But it's not the actors or the story that matter here (although the story, based on a real comic book, is very unique), it's the colorful costumes, the fight scenes, and the comedy. Here's hoping that it lives up to its hype.
