Review: 4 Kicked Asses / 4

Wow. First and foremost, Chloƫ Grace Moretz steals the show as Hit-Girl, an 11 year old with some of the baddest Kung Fu and heaviest fire power around. Oh yeah, and the plot is pretty good, too. Dave, a stereotypical high school nerd, is musing with his friends about why no one goes out and becomes a superhero, and eventually decides that he should do just that. He ends up getting in way over his head, and gets his ass kicked, repeatedly. But then the real superheros show up, and a war ensues. The plot is fairly intricate, and for an action movie, the characters offer a lot of depth. Nick Cage is as bizarre as usual, but fortunately he doesn't overpower the rest of the cast. The film is every comic book nerd's dream, in full color, and at full speed. Did I mention? Wow.
