WITH NO POWER COMES NO RESPONSIBILITY.
this one line sums up the entire movie. be it good or bad, there's an eleven year old girl ploughing through men like they're mere meat curtains. glad i watched this in theatres.
This is like the stoner version of Watchmen and a really good movie. Chloe Grace Moretz is a super badass in this film, giving a whole new meaning to hit like a girl. Also Nicolas Cage isn't bad in this either.
Damn good movie; both has a surprising end-game and is a lot darker/morally ambiguous than you would think. As the characters start piling up you realize they're all at cross-purposes, and shit gets real real fast. Some scenes have you laughing your ass off while others make you sick to your stomach. Definitely a movie ahead of the concept its parodying. --PolarisDiB
Not at all what I was expecting. It had a lot of the goofiness the trailer promised but it was also a hell of a lot of fun and also offered a shitload of brutality from an unlikely place. Kick-Ass was also frustrating because Nicolas Cage (the Mr. Magoo of actors) was one of the best parts of the movie. Just when you're about to write him off, he does something great that forces you to give him another chance...
I’m surprised I actually liked this one, considering how low my expectations were. Yes, it’s sophomoric and self-indulgent - but its stylishly made with a likable cast and some clever touches. Maybe not great cinema, but solid entertainment.
It's fun, but not worth the hype. Much more interesting than the titular story is that of Hit Girl (also much more entertaining). I'm not going to moralize on the film since I think it's a waste of time. I don't moralize about the Three Stooges, either.
I just saw Kick-Ass at SXSW, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, not having read any of the comics. You can read my review over at CriterionCast.com: http://criterioncast.com/2010/03/18/ryan-reviews-sxsw-2010s-opening-night-film-kick-ass-sxsw-2010-film-festival/
