In the second episode of our Heroine Case Series we look at the first movie in the Kick Ass series, specifically the character Hit Girl. I avoided watching this movie as I didn’t think it would be any good but couldn’t be happier to say I was wrong. I love all the characters in the movie but I think Hit Girl is in many ways reflective of the generation coming through that see themselves as fearless warriors for justice. In Hit Girls case though she has a father who is determined to prepare her for the world at any cost. I can totally relate to his methods even if I haven’t (yet) shot one of the girls. This preparation gives her a very different perspective of justice, a little more bloody but a lot more clear on what is good and truly what is evil.
