Not your typical comic book hero movie. None of the “super heros” have any powers (well, Kick Ass comes the closest, but his “powers” just allow him to take and survive your more than average ass kicking). The title hero is just an everyday high school kid who decides that he has had enough and does something about it. More than a bit violent at time, but it about putting the hurt on bad guys. The character Hit Girl steals the show though.
