It's only been two years since Tomas Alfredson adapted John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel Let The Right One In for the big screen, and already the American-set remake is upon us. This is the first film made by the recently resurrected British horror brand Hammer Films, and they have a hit on their hands.

"A putz in pantyhose," is how Mark Strong's wise-guy crook, Frank D'Amico, describes Kick-Ass, a crime-buster in a green wetsuit (snapped up for $99 on the internet) and yellow rubber gloves.

Theatre: I don't go much. I never got taken when I was young and it still feels a bit of an alien experience. I did, however, see 'Hair' in the West End recently, which I thought was great, and 'Red' on Broadway, which had some brilliant acting in it but dramatically was simply Rothko's essays put into dialogue.

Judging by the nine-picture deal which Samuel L Jackson has apparently signed to reprise the Iron Man films' eyepatch-wearing superspy Nick Fury, the appetite for US superhero films isn't expected to die down soon, with outings for Kenneth Branagh's Thor, Captain America and The Avengers also in the pipeline.

Matthew Vaughn's cartoonishly violent action comedy takes off from an interesting premise: you cannot dispense justice in a corrupt society if you don't wear the right clobber. It is perhaps a sign of the times that your average teen no longer considers being "a hero" good enough. Nowadays the only thing for it is to be a superhero, and if you can't be one, then act like one. This can-do attitude is what makes the first half-hour of Kick-Ass such a blast.
