Yesterday evening (or this morning, if you'd like to be technical), Captain Captain Industries' broadcast the wonders that was Kick-Ass to the whole office. In retrospect, I can't believe I hadn't seen it before. Y'knowwhat? This could be one of the best films I've watched. If not ever, at least for a while. Not a thing wrong with this.
The film was directed by Matthew Vaughn, as well as co-produced by Mr. Brad Pitt. Pretty dece, right?
Kick-Ass tells the story of an Dave, a modern-day comic book enthusiast who sets out to become a real-life superhero, of course with the help of a 100$ scuba-suit. Dave bites off a bit more than he can chew, and is about to be on the ass end of an ass-kicking when he meets 'Big Daddy' (Nicolas Cage), a former cop who, in his quest to bring down the drug lord Frank D'Amico, has trained his 11-year-old daughter to be the absolute action-pinnacle of the movie, Hit-Girl.

Life likes to be really nice sometimes. Like when Matthew Vaughn agrees to do Kick-Ass 2.
Straight off of Wikipedia, sons --
"The story begins a certain amount of months after the events of Kick-Ass. Mindy is living a double life. Whilst trying to train Dave in order to make him a more efficient hero, she is also attempting to give up being a vigilante by Marcus, her stepfathers wishes of living a normal life with her mother. She relents after he finds a hidden cache of heavy weaponry in her playroom.
Meanwhile, Dave/Kick-Ass has taken to patrolling with various other heroes. Ever since the attack on John Genovese, heroes have taken to the streets and are generally accepted by the public as part of everyday life. Whilst patrolling with a hero named Doctor Gravity, a pair of men approach the two, claiming to need help. They attack suddenly, but are easily dispatched by Kick-ass, thanks to his training. Unfortunately, a group of gang members see the attack and chase Kick-Ass and Doctor Gravity into retreat.
The next day, Kick-Ass goes to meet with a group he's found on the internet who are associated with Doctor Gravity. He texts Mindy asking if she wants to join, but she turns him down, claiming that she needs to stop putting on her mask. Kick-Ass is suddenly lowered down, through the groups secret entrance, revealed by Doctor Gravity. In the meeting place, he comes face to face with a table of various masked men and women. The apparent leader welcomes him to the group, which is known as Justice Forever."
Stay classy, San Diego,
