Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, May 2nd at 4:50pm for Kick-Ass at the Regal Gallery Place . Look for Pete wearing a red tie in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Dave Lizewski, a comic-book fanboy, decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. 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 and her father, Big Daddy.
**Please note that this movie is rated R for for strong brutal violence throughout, pervasive language, sexual content, nudity and some drug use involving children.**
