Kick Ass!

59 posts in this topic

Posted

First off, the only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because of the slow pace.
I plan on watching it again because I may have been tired when viewing it,
but it felt like the pace was intentionally slow... which hurt.

Other than that, the story was awesome. The "Origin" stories were very
down-to-Earth and oddly believable. Well, if you believe you can actually
order a rocket-launcher (and other gadgets) online. For a movie called
Kick Ass, he was definitely NOT the star of the show. That position fell
to the very young Hit Girl who not only owned every scene she was in
and made you want the focus to stay on her, but managed to come across
so believable you can't help but wonder at the possibilty of a 12-year old
assassin. Oh, and the Bannana Bunch song rocked.

Nick Cage comes back to awesome with his portrayal of "Batman"- not just
the outfit, but pay attention to his voice in costume; this is mostly for the
folks that remember the old, hokey TV show. Not to mention, I felt like
his character is exactly what the Dark Knight would be if he ever decided
killing the bad guys was the right move. Great job.

Whereas Big Daddy and Hit Girl have taken the time to train, Kick Ass
is the polar opposite: he's just a kid with a cheap suit. I'm looking forward
to the sequel to see where they take the character(s). If you're on the
fence about checking this movie out, I highly suggest you do. Though
slow, it was certainly a fun ride.

yup, was a good film to watch, totally agree with the comment about hit girl being the star of the show rather then kick ass, I'd give it an 8 out of 10 because of the drag out quality, wouldn't watch it again like, but some films are like that, watch once then never to watch again until i forget what its about

Great movie indeed ! I give it a 9/10 :) And yeah, Chloe (the girl that plays Hit-Girl) was just awesome ! Brilliant career ahead of her.

This movie was, no pun intended, kick-ass!

I don't know how I went to nightmare on elm street before this movie. Such a great movie and way more than I expected!

9/10 from me (Y) (Y)

This film was a bit slow, but still decently entertaining. I think I'd give it a 7 or 8/10 myself. Good review.

Just saw it tonight. And wow what a great movie! I expected a cheap knock-off to superhero movies, but I was blown away.

This was pure entertainment.

9/10

Just saw the movie, and yup it kicked ass.

Yes the movie is ultra-violent but in an over the top comic-y way (just look at the blood splatter effects lol) and has a ton of bad language (most said by Hit Girl of course heh) but it's still a terrific and fun movie. It was actually quite a touching movie also, and a VERY good origin story for Kick-Ass and Hit Girl (more or less) if you want to think of it that way.

Wait till they get a load of me...

I loved this film. Much better then I expected, definitely a 10/10. I bet the parents of Chloe were cringing at some her language hehe but I thought her acting was brilliant.

Ps. Anyone know the tune when [spoiler]in the warehouse, she blinds the thugs with the light attached to her gun and starts shooting them?[/spoiler]

Kick Ass! was great. Had some good twist and loops which kept you guessing, as well as just plain awesome fight scenes. I liked how the characters were developed, especially the heroes. Great movie indeed. I hope if there is a sequel, that it does the first justice.

Saw it and loved it. To the poster above...Cage was good! His acting was quirky, but it fit. I want them to bring him back from the dead or something in the next one. :p

I don't. He just did not fit in the movie at all.

Well, him and Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson). He was alot more fitting for Dave Lizewski. But you cant really judge him on that as he was just a geek trying to be a superhero which if you consider that, he did OK.

Surprisingly good, I loved it!!

Chloe Moretz was amazing, Nick Cage absolutely nailed it and the music was phenomenal. If you haven't made up your mind about seeing this just go see it, you won't regret it!!

9.5/10 (no movie is perfect!)

I loved this movie! 9-9.5/10! great action! Some people said it was slow going at first, but i thought it was timed perfectly.... I guess some people think an action movie shouldnt have any downtime.... Thats the problem with too much action- not enough story. This movie didn't suffer from that problem at all. I didnt really care for Kick Ass at first, but upon watching the movie again, I realized that just because he's not as "Kick-Ass" as Big Daddy and Hit Girl, doesn't mean he's any less important, in his corner of the world. In fact, Kick-Ass INSPIRED Big Daddy and Hit Girl, so without him, they'd just be a father daughter hit squad, rather than a superhero duo. Anyways, I dont wanna get into a whole philosophical monologue, so I'll just say that the movie ROCKED, and I'm glad I make a habit of seeing the films *I* want to see rather than those that "everyone else" loves...
