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. In the opening scene of Kick-Ass, melancholy nerd Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) dreams of a fantasy world of capes, spandex, and flying off skyscrapers. In this case it's the Royal Bank Plaza, the 70s postmodern tower in Toronto, Canada. Watch out bad guys. It's a nerd with a dream. Scroll down to see more film locations identifed from Kick-Ass.
