Aries likes to lead the pack. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and fittingly, its representatives tend to charge forward and take life by the horns. You are self-confident, charismatic, assertive, energetic and do not shy away from any challenge. All of this makes them strong fighters and a good choice for leadership positions, especially in the military and law enforcement. But because they often speak and act before taking the time to think through a situation, they tend to make mistakes and don’t always finish what they start. If you find yourself in a tight spot, a fearless and adrenaline-pumping Aries will be there first, ready to help—but things may not go as planned.
Those qualities describe many of Nicolas Cage’s performances, but 2010’s “Kick-Ass” stands above all others. “Kick-Ass” tells the story of Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a teenager whose obsession with comics compels him to become a superhero himself despite his lack of superpowers or crime-fighting skills. Predictably, things aren’t going well — at least not until he meets Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), a father-daughter pair of masked guards who have taken on the mafia. “Kick-Ass” is Aries personified: brave, bold and full of characters who hardly think twice about putting themselves in danger for the greater good.
