Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s cult comic book comes to the big screen in all its bloody glory. High school nerd Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) decides to become a real-life superhero--even though he has no powers or training or any compelling reason to do so. Turns out, that's a really bad idea. But a few broken bones and a skull fracture or two aren't going to dissuade him. Soon the tenacious costumed teen is inspiring a whole wave of people in tights to beat the living crap out of criminals. Unfortunately, some of these folks (Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Nicolas Cage among them) are far more dangerous and way more psychotic than Mrs. Lizewski's little boy. 117 minutes R.
