Hit-Girl played by13 year old actress Chloë Grace Moretz. Look out for her - she's already got a great repertoire of movies to her name.
I saw Kick Ass yesterday and boy was I entertained. I saw the trailer, and knew it was a Marvel comic book that was made into a movie. I also knew the story line a bit - but man - the action scenes with the 13 year old Hit Girl were some of the best I have seen since The Matrix.
The action scenes to some extent reminded me of the blood and gore of a Quentin Taranino movie - it was brutal, violent and bloody.
OK - at one point, I was thinking that a 13 year old child playing such a role where she is totally de-sensitized to violence can raise a social question or two but just take this movie for what it is - pure excitement and entertainment.
The action hero is an unlikely 13 year old, who really made this movie and kicked some ass.
