Kick-Ass (2010)

No super powers in this comic book to film, but the villains are real and the fighting can give a guy a concussion.

A high school kid decides to beat the humdrum feeling of being a nobody and puts on a superhero suit and decides to go out and fight crime. It isn't long before he's in over his head and his ass gets kicked. Fortunately, he's not the only one with the idea and he gets some back up.

The power in this film is how it captures adolescence, how it boldly places violence on a slab without any gloss, how it gives voice to a generation that doesn't want to tiptoe around the issues.
