Kick-Ass

PhotobucketPhotobucketSurprisingly violent superhero film about an average teen inspired to don a costume and fight crime despite possessing no powers whatsoever.  Based on the comic book of the same name, director Matthew Vaughn oddly mixes humor with shocking bursts of violence and profanity to make this entertaining film.  Actress Chloe Moretz plays supporting superhero Hit-Girl and she is a character you won‘t soon forget.  An 11 year old badass who uses language that would embarrass Linda Blair in The Exorcist.  Nevertheless, there is something almost exhilarating in seeing a seemingly helpless little girl triumph over evil against insurmountable odds.  Solely aiming a superhero movie at adults is a difficult act to pull off, almost akin to making  a pornographic cartoon.  It’s disturbing.  However this humorous riff on the world of comic books is undeniably well written and well paced.  Call it a guilty pleasure.

    Cool, I wanted to go see this afternoon with my buddy but he couldn’t make it. Hopefully I will see it very soon.

  2. Great great movie! I had a lot of fun with this movie. Violent, yes. Funny, yes. Action-packed oh yes. It was rated “R’, so I expected some adult themes, and the movie delivered, on that. But I enjoyed it.

  3. Nice review. I’m all geared up for Kick-Ass. Hopefully it opens here soon.

  4. I wasn’t too sure about this movie Mark, but you seem to like it. Hmm, an 11 year old using foul language? I may catch this one at the $2 movie theater when it shows. lol….I’m so behind the times. And I like reading Ruben’s comments 🙂
