I'm a girl, yes. Girls are expected to be all vagina-gun-ho. But I am NOT over-exaggerating when I say that the comic book heroine Hit-Girl is totally KICK-ASS!!!! Parents may not approve of the 12-year-old's cursing or her...gun-play, but grown-up ladies who are tired of being treated like chihuahua-toting, lip-glossing applying airheads will bow to the prepubescent firecracker. AND the movie isn't even about her.
It's about the title character super hero wannabe, who normally goes by Dave (Aaron Johnson). He's "an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a super-hero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so." While on his quest, he meets Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz, who played the hilarious younger sister in 500 Days of Summer), her father Big Daddy (Nicholas Cage), and the equally gangly hero Red Mist (Chris Mintz-Plasse from Superbad). Together they try to bring down a nefarious drug kingpin (Mark Strong from Sherlock Holmes and Rock n Rolla), who happens to be Red Mist's dad. dum-Dum-DUM!!! Bring it!
I don't normally post teasers but this is certainly worth the drool:
