DESCRIPTION: Melancholy nerd Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) proves that you don't need super powers to save New York City from the scourge of violence and greed. Just a Kick-Ass attitude and a strong social media presence. (And a little green spandex). In the never ending fight against evil, nerds and misfits rule the terrain in Kick-Ass. When Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and his crew of unlikely superheroes unleash their old-fashioned ass-kicking on New York City, gangster boss Frank (Mark Strong) gets a few bees in his bonnet. Towering above the city at 1,454 feet, the Empire State building is an iconic symbol of New York and often used as an establishing shot in films.
