You Wanna Be A....WHAT??!!!!!
   Let’s get one thing out of the way; there is no way Hollywood can ever match the awesomeness that is Mark Millar’s and John Romita Jr.’s comic book mini series titled "KICK ASS" (see my review here). The comic series was just a different the way it was successful in mixing black humor, action and a dark premise about isolation and loneliness that made me doubt my insanity why I read comic books. But since Hollywood is one major money-making machine, (as …

I just saw this not an hour ago and I can safely say that it is one of the best comic book films of all time. The acting is great, the story (essentially about an amateur superhero's days in crime-fighting) is great, the action is great, and it has some great humour mixed with a fair amout of gore and swearing. That being said, this movie is definitely not for everyone, especially those who aren't comfortable with a young girl swearing and killing people. There are also some reasonably …

***1/2 out of ****     "Kick-Ass" pretty much kicks ass in every way possible. It's profane, slightly irrelevant, and equally as entertaining to watch as it was to read when it was a comic. Despite the typical art style, I personally loved reading the "Kick-Ass" comic. It isn't extremely deep, but hey. It kicked ass. Well, now there's a film adaptation, and it kicks more ass than a horse in the stable. While it will certainly not appeal to everyone (looking at you, Roger Ebert), …

A friend invited me to see Kick Ass and I went knowing nothing about the movie besides it was a comedy.  I love seeing movies that way.      I was drawn into the plot until the introduction of Hit Girl and the level of violence.  This 13-year old girl single handedly kills numerous grown men using a variety of weapons, laughing much of the time.      On one hand, sure, it was pretty cute to have a super hero girl.  On the other, it was too …

If you enjoyed the film I recommend reading the graphic novel, its brilliant

Kick-Ass: It's Watchmen minus emotional drama and Dr. Manhattan
I've had my fair share of watching comic book based movies (Spider-Man, Fantastic 4, Iron Man, X-Men, Watchmen, Batman) and each of them have unique ways of presenting the super hero and their heroic actions. But Kick-Ass kinda veers the opposite and kinda reminds me of seeing Watchmen (even the promotional posters kinda relate).      The reason why I reference Watchmen is that both relate to having costumed vigilantes taking down crimes on a daily basis. Kick-Ass twists things …

What Pompted You to write a Review?   I was prompted to write this review because never has any of the comic movies I have seen in the last 5 years or so have realistically resembled the actual comic book. Most big hollywood comic book movies do not closely follow the actual storyline or have characters that are far from physically looking like the actual comic book characters this movie followed the book well.      How was the Plot, Acting, Direction?   …

As a kid, when it came to the heroes that I liked to watch on television or the comics I read, there was always this sort of sense of wanting to be a superhero.  If you were one of those really dorky kids, you made a cape and pretended you could fly by jumping on your bed when no one was there.  I think most kids who admired the likes of Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, etc. did that sort of thing from time to time.  This is, more or less, the basis behind Kick-Ass.  Based off the …

Have you ever wanted to be a superhero. Kick-Ass is about four very different people who take very different paths to become superheroes. With a few exceptions, they do provide some innovative fighting scenes and hilarious moments.      First, the great. One of the superheroes, Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz), is a adorable 10-year old girl who has a passion for guns and slaughtering bad guys the way other young girls get excited for jewelry or dolls. Chloe is a great actress and gives …

A cheesy fun violent comic book movie that was strangely marketed as a lighted hearted teen film.
Kick-Ass is a cheesy fun comic book movie based on a "graphic novel" of the same name.  The story revolves around some goofy teenage (Aaron Johnson) who decides to become a real life superhero (after donning a wet suit) named Kick-Ass.  After a rough start, he becomes an internet sensation when he gets involved in a brutal beat down in front of a cafe.  His actions and a near fatal attempt in trying to fight a local drug dealer catches the attention of a real crime fighter …

At the start of "Kick-Ass," I couldn't help but feel somewhat excited, as I was introduced to the title character, who, when not dressed as a superhero, I found both engaging and amusing. While his thought process is not something I pretend to understand, the situations he finds himself in as a typical high schooler were somewhat relatable, and they got a chuckle or two out of me. But then we meet eleven-year-old Mindy Macready (ChloĆ« Grace Moretz) and her father (Nicholas Cage); they stand in an …

   The concept of an average, every day comic book geek donning spandex attire and becoming a super-hero is one that I find quite interesting. I'm sure there are a few crazy people in the world who have contemplated or even attempted just that, but in the comic world, the only character I've been familiar with becoming a super-hero with no particular superpower is Batman. When this was first released and up to the point of me seeing it, I wasn't familiar that this was also …

   "With no power comes no responsibility.  Except that isn't true." That line from Kick Ass pretty much sums up the meta-message for Kick Ass the movie. Underdogs need to take a beating before they can prevail.  The trial by fire is an all important aspect of the mythos.  Kick Ass posits the theory that in order to become a superhero, all you really need is the power to get your ass kicked. I have to say that the moment that I heard the HR Puff-n-Stuff …

As a comic nerd, i'm always skeptical of how a movie will represent the source material. When it came to Kick-Ass, the movie was arriving in theaters when only 6 issues had been in stores. What are you supposed to expect?! Luckily, it worked. Kick-Ass was just as much cheesy action flick as it was comic nostalgia-filled nerdery. The cast performed well (yes, even Nic Cage) and the director's vision of Millar's comic was definitely in the right mindframe. I'd recommend as a rental …

Being a Superhero ain't all its cracked up to be.
Action-packed, funny and explosive.      You cant go wrong with Kick-ass. When a high school kid decides to become a Super hero (cause no one elsr tried) hillarity ensues as not only is he in over his head, but he also becomes entangled in an even bigger situation no one could predict.      Kick-ass is a fun movie to watch. But be warned its rated 18A for a reason, on top of the blood and gore are explitives around every corner. I thought the story played …

For the most part fans of Superhero Comic Books and Movies will probably get a lot of enjoyment out of Kick-Ass. It's a very entertaining movie for the most part, and one that perhaps you should all head on out to see at least once. It's not everyone's cup of tea, obviously, but if you've got a hankering for some action, black comedy, clever wit and violence... Kick-Ass is worth the time.

The main conceit of Kick Ass, the latest super hero film to grace the screens of cinemas across the country, is that it's set in the "real world". You know, the real world where someone trains an eleven-year-old girl to be a mass-murderer and is viewed as a hero. Yeah, that real world. Of course, in the actual real world there are in fact kids who do get trained to be mass-murderers, go around killing people by the dozens and the people that trained them are rightly viewed as criminals, but whatever.  &nb …

Hot women, insane gunplay, knives, and a great soundtrack. Lots of blood and gore, some drug usage. Suggested for any and all people who like to see a good ass-kicking

Essentially 2 different superhero films merged at the hip, it's one part teen comedy & one part dark comicbook action movie. Pretty awesome.

A hilariously un-PC comic book movie loaded with humor and bloody violence. Sort of a John Hughes meets Kevin Smith meets Tarantino classic.

great movie and also great soundtrack!!

A stylish, ultra-violent superhero comedy that satirizes the entire genre. Kind of like "Kill Bill" meets Marvel Comics' greatest hits. =D
