Chloe Grace Moretz in 'Kick-Ass': 'Morally reprehensible,' says Roger Ebert
In the film, Moretz's 11-year-old character "dishes out carnage," according to Ebert, and is later hammered to within an inch of her life by an adult man. Along the way, she is shot by her own father (Nicholas Cage) at point-blank range while wearing a bulletproof vest, seems emotionally unfazed by the slaughter surrounding her, and drops so many F-bombs it makes Joe Biden's seem totally appropriate.
Despite giving the film two thumbs down, Ebert did say that Moretz has "presence and appeal" as the purple-haired child assassin. At age 13, Moretz already has 19 movies, including "(500) Days of Summer" and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," under her belt, with 6 more on the way before the end of 2011.
