2 Sentence Movie Reviews: Kick-Ass

A surprisingly violent and funny meshing of youth naiveté and kids’ natural badassness, Kick-Ass features a tolerable Nicolas Cage in a body suit, Aaron Johnson as a harmless sometimes-gay with charisma, and Chloe Moretz as an adorable and feisty 11-year-old with a bigger dick than yours, in a digestible plot sequence with token bad guys and bazookas. You should see the film in theaters, because the communal laughter of your seatmates will distract you from the not-so-hilarious throat slitting and stomach knifings.
