The movie's writers want us to see Hit-Girl not only as cool, but also sexy, like an even younger version of the baby - faced Oriental assassin in Tarantino's Kill Bill 1. Paedophiles are going to adore her. One of the film's creepiest aspects is that she's made to look as seductive as possible - much more so than in the Mark Millar and John Romita Jr comic book on which this is based. She's fetishised in precisely the same way as Angelina Jolie in the Lara Croft movies, and Halle Berry in Catwoman. [...] Oh, and one of the male teenage characters acknowledges that he's attracted to her.
