Despite having generated some controversy for its profanity and violence performed by a child, Kick-Ass was well received by both critics and audiences. In 2011 it won the Empire Award for Best British Film. Dave Lizewski is an ordinary teenager who lives in Staten Island, New York. Inspired by comic books, Dave plans to become a real-life superhero. In his absence from school, a rumor spreads that he is gay, as he was found naked by the paramedics after discarding his costume. As a result, his longtime crush, Katie Deauxma, immediately attempts to become his friend.
Unhappy with the misunderstanding, Dave nevertheless appreciates the opportunity to get closer to Katie. Dave returns to crime-fighting and gains notoriety after intervening in a gang attack. Calling himself “Kick-Ass”, he sets up a Myspace account where he can be contacted for help. Responding to a request from Katie, he confronts a drug dealer, Rasul, who has been harassing her.
At Rasul’s place, Kick-Ass is quickly overwhelmed by Rasul’s thugs. Big Daddy’s real identity is Damon Macready, formerly an honest cop. Framed by Mafia boss Frank D’Amico, he was jailed. His wife committed suicide, leaving behind his daughter Mindy. Against the protest of his former partner Marcus Williams, Damon trains himself and Mindy as preparation for getting revenge on Frank. They have been undermining Frank’s operations by raiding his warehouses, robbing his money and destroying his drugs. Frank believes Kick-Ass is responsible for the attacks and targets him, impulsively killing a party entertainer who is dressed like Kick-Ass.
Frank’s son, Chris, suggests a different approach. He poses as a new vigilante, “Red Mist”, and befriends Kick-Ass. He plans to lure Kick-Ass into Frank’s lumber warehouse and unmask him. However, they find the warehouse on fire and Frank’s men dead. Following the event, Dave decides to quit being Kick-Ass.
He reveals his identity to Katie, and clears up the misunderstanding about him being gay. She forgives him and becomes his girlfriend. However, Red Mist contacts him again, and tricks him into revealing Big Daddy and Hit-Girl’s location. At one of Big Daddy’s safe houses, Red Mist shoots Hit-Girl out of a window, and Frank’s men capture Big Daddy and Kick-Ass. Frank intends to have his thugs torture and execute his captives in a live Internet broadcast. While Kick-Ass and Big Daddy are being beaten by Frank’s gangsters, Hit-Girl, having survived the shooting, storms the hideout and kills all of the gangsters.
