Hit Girl vs Kick Ass


                I watched “Kick Ass 2” last night. It was OK but I thought the first movie was better.

                There is a scene in the early part of the movie when Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) unleashes a fury of kicks and blows against Kick Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). What struck me about this sequence was not that the attacks were particularly strong, fast or technically skilled. The reason she dominated the exchange was her character’s determination and commitment to the attacks. This is something to think about.   

                 Here is the clip. Action starts at the 50 second mark.
