New York teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) buys a bodysuit and turns himself into a superhero; his first attempts at creating justice are pitiful, but he eventually gets caught up in a battle between a crime boss and an 11-year-old avenger. A story that is partly grounded in reality as it deals with a teenager’s quest to find his place in the world, partly in a very violent comic-book fantasy. Many found this approach offensive ‚Äď uneven is what I would call it, but brazen and very entertaining. Mark Strong is fun as the mob boss and Chlo√ę Grace Moretz got her breakthrough as the lethal Hit Girl.
