So Matthew Vaughn‘s adaptation of Mark Millar‘s comic book Kick-Ass is getting, erm, kickass rave early buzz.

Comparisons to The Matrix abound, and a lot are throwing around names as varied as Shaun of the Dead and Pulp Fiction (I guess both are known for their great dialogue). Apparently they showed footage at this past Comic Con and the crowd went apeshit. The trailer makes it seem really kiddy, which I guess makes it not kick as (ass, hah, get it?) much ass as it could, but what I’ve read assures me that it’s ridiculously violent. The plot reads as such:

As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name — Kick-Ass — assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers. His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloë  Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicholas Cage).
