Nowhere Boy is a film by Sam Taylor-Johnson about John Lennon’s (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) first years, focused mainly in his adolescence and his relationship with his Aunt Mimi (Kristin Scott Thomas), who raised him, and his absentee mother Julia (Anne-Marie Duff), who re-entered his life at a crucial moment in his young life.
Kick-Ass 2 follows Kick-Ass’ heroics from the first film that other citizens are inspired to become masked crusaders. But Red Mist leads his own group of evil supervillains to get revenge, kill Kick-Ass and destroy everything he stands for and for the largest portion of the movie that is what happens.
It’s more of a psychological thriller that features the acting chops of Aaron Taylor-Johnson. That alone would have me interested anyway, because I think that guy is gold and he doesn’t disappoint.
“Kick Ass” is the story of Dave Lizewski, an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a superhero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so other than fed up being bullied and being a nobody.
