I normally would have passed this by, but it was getting rave reviews from some folks whose opinions I trust. Now I know why. It’s funny. But for my money, it should have been named “Hit Girl.” The Mindy character played by little Chloe Grace Moretz was hilarious. She really got me laughing, and in more than one scene. I watched the DVD bonus feature on the film’s comic book origin and discovered that the Kick-Ass character was actually an after thought, added as a counterpoint to Daddy and Hit Girl. You can bet there will be a sequel to this. Too funny!
most of the time it was lame and kindof disturbing.
Tarentino-esque in humor and violence, yet I was way more disturbed watching Kick-Ass than while watching Inglorious Basterds.
There is a dark element of dysfunction running through each of the main characters in Kick-Ass. But the actors and the filmmakers’ gleeful embrace of that dysfunction makes the movie wildly cathartic and satisfying.
Absolutely NOT for kids. This movie has a hard R rating for a reason.
