This weekend finally sees the release of Kick-Ass, based on the popular graphic novel about a regular high schooler who decides to become a superhero…even though he has no powers, and can barely even throw a punch. He’s eventually joined by two more experienced crime fighters: the father-and-daughter team of Big Daddy and Hit Girl. Together, this group attempts to take down a major crime boss while killing anyone who gets in their way. Oh, and did I mention Hit Girl is only 11 years old?
