KICK-ASS is an action comedy in which an ordinary teenage boy decides to make a stand against the street crime in his city by becoming a superhero known as 'Kick-Ass'.

Language

Frequent use of strong language ('f**k') occurs alongside a single aggressive use of very strong language ('c**t') used by a young girl towards the members of a gang.

Violence

Frequent scenes of strong bloody violence include stabbings, shootings, throat cutting, severing of limbs, and scenes of martial arts combat. Sequences are often punctuated by humour and are heavily stylised, although some sequences - including a scene of torture - maintain an element of brutality. There is also some glamorisation of weaponry, including a young girl's fascination with a butterfly knife.

Occasional strong sex references include implied scenes of masturbation, and scenes of drug use feature a man smoking a 'bong' and a character snorting a line of cocaine.
