When it came out in the cinemas, Kick-Ass attracted a lot of controversy. The question was: is it okay to have an 11-year-old girl involved in violent scenes both attacking and being attacked in what is basically a superhero comedy? It's about a bullied high school kid who reinvents himself as the costumed avenger Kick-Ass (not without suffering a lot of pain along the way) and becomes an ally of father-daughter team Big Daddy and Hit Girl. It's a funny, exhilarating but also unsettling movie.
