Germany German (Deutsch)

Wer wäre nicht gern ein Superheld? Die Bösen verdreschen, die Guten beschützen - davon träumt auch Dave Lizewski, ein unauffälliger, normaler High School-Schüler, nicht sehr beliebt, nicht allzu sehr beachtet von den Mädchen, wie so viele vor und nach ihm. Aber Dave ist nicht wie die Anderen: er besorgt sich einen grünen Neoprenanzug und eine Maske, tauft sich auf den Namen Kick-Ass und zieht hinaus in die Nacht, um Verbrecher zur Strecke zu bringen, gänzlich ohne jegliche Superkräfte oder sonstige erwähnenswerte Fähigkeiten. Von Kampfkünsten mal abgesehen, denn seine ersten Einsätze bringen ihm vor allem eins ein: was aufs Maul.

France French (Français)

Dave Lizewski est un adolescent gavé de comics qui ne vit que pour ce monde de super-héros et d'incroyables aventures. Décidé à vivre son obsession jusque dans la réalité, il se choisit un nom – Kick-Ass – se fabrique lui-même un costume, et se lance dans une bataille effrénée contre le crime. Dans son délire, il n'a qu'un seul problème : Kick-Ass n'a pas le moindre superpouvoir... Le voilà pourchassé par toutes les brutes de la ville. Mais Kick-Ass s'associe bientôt à d'autres délirants copycats décidés eux aussi à faire régner la justice. Parmi eux, une enfant de 11 ans, Hit Girl et son père Big Daddy, mais aussi Red Mist. Le parrain de la mafia locale, Frank D'Amico, va leur donner l'occasion de montrer ce dont ils sont capables...

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Dave Lizewski è un ragazzo qualunque, studente di liceo e appassionato lettore di fumetti, Dave ha risultati modesti negli studì, ha pochi amici e vive solo con il padre. Sarà anche per questo che un giorno decide di rifarsi una vita: sarà un supereroe. E questo nonostante non abbia alcun tipo di superpotere o di allenamento: un compito decisamente difficile che Dave affronta però con grande energia. Dave, nerd che per stare con una ragazza fa credere di essere gay, si improvvisa supereroe finendo all’ospedale ma divenendo un fenomeno sui social network. Hit-Girl è invece una ragazzina di undici anni che combatte a fianco del padre Big Daddy contro il mafioso Frank D’Amico. Piccola e letale, entra in azione accompagnata dall’allegra canzone delle Banana Splits e dissemina la stanza di arti di criminali amputati a colpi di katana.

Part of Kick-Ass Collection

Kick-Ass is a British-American 2010 superhero action-comedy film based on the Marvel comic book of the same name by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. The film was directed by Matthew Vaughn, who co-produced with Brad Pitt and co-wrote the screenplay with Jane Goldman. It is the first installment of the Kick-Ass film series. Despite having generated some controversy for its profanity and violence performed by a child, Kick-Ass was well received by both critics and audiences. A sequel titled Kick-Ass 2 written and directed by Jeff Wadlow (with Vaughn returning as producer only) was released in August 2013, with Taylor-Johnson, Mintz-Plasse, and Moretz reprising their roles.
