Rated 4.0

This is one hilarious, super violent, sick puppy of a motion picture. Adapted from a comic book written by Mark Millar and directed by Matthew Vaughn (the highly underrated Stardust), the movie is wall-to-wall fun for those who go for this sort of thing. Aaron Johnson plays Dave, a bullied high school student who is invisible to girls and has had enough of losing his cell phone and lunch money to assholes. He mail-orders a costume, prowls the streets at night, and becomes an internet phenomenon. There’s also Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz), a superhero father-daughter team like no other (the introduction of these two is a classic scene). The film is a good comedy that also qualifies as decent action moviemaking.
