Mini Review - Kick Ass

Kick-Ass (out Apr 8) is about a nerdy kid who thinks he can become a superhero by fighting crime. He's not very good but he becomes caught up in a much bigger fight between real superheroes and a real supervillain. The storyline is great with plenty of laughs and surprises. Not for everyone with its strong language and violence but it certainly met my high standards. Grade: A-.
