Shut up. Kick ass.
Dave Lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a super-hero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so.
Nicolas Cage and Chloe Grace Moretz are so good, no one noticed how crummy the rest of the movie around them is, myself included.
The movie does have an intriguing premise, this notion of real-world superheroes. But the "real" world of KICK-ASS is incredibly phony. Its New York City is clearly Toronto, its mobsters are generic cliches; even its depiction of comic-book fandom feels false. And by the end you have a 10-year-old girl performing impossible gun tricks and a dude riding a jetpack. Not exactly the sharpest of satires.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson's not my favorite actor in the world, but he's actually fine here. (Christopher Mintz-Plasse is the real clunker of the cast, and if he's Mark Strong's son I'm…
A superb creation. Matthew Vaughn brings the previously little known comic book "Kick-Ass" to life on the big screen, and boy does he do a fantastic job. Kick-Ass follows the story of Dave Lizewski who's had enough of the bullies and takes matters into his own hands - becoming the wet suit clad hero Kick-Ass. The story is detailed with some excellent links to a huge number of films and comics. We are introduced to a host of great characters each with interesting and well explored backgrounds. It's immensely violent, insanely funny and gruesomely gory. The action sequences are elaborate, stunning and very impressive, especially the great scene in the warehouse. With a super-apt soundtrack and excellent pace keeps you…
As many times as I've seen this, it's always just as entertaining as the first time. The music especially makes this story. The score swells up, hooking you into the story and the pop music cracks you up and plays perfectly into the scenes. From Aaron Johnson's naive Kick-Ass to Nicolas Cage's over the top Big Daddy and his murderous heroine of a daughter Hit-Girl, the characters just seemed to blend together well to tell the story without ever having a moment of any slow exposition. The action scenes are pure perfection and I still remember the first time I watched the movie, right after it ended, I went back and rewatched the Hit-Girl scenes. Chloë Grace Moretz was born…
For reasons I cannot fully explain, I never gave Kick-Ass a chance until now. With the release of Kingsman: The Secret Service approaching soon, I was told to brush up on Matthew Vaughn's stylistically similar previous film, with both works also based on Mark Millar graphic novels. I bought a super cheap used copy of Kick-Ass on Blu-ray, sat down and gave it a spin, expecting silly entertainment.
Silly? Sure is, but don't take that word as a negative. I don't mean to demean this movie as something lesser by calling it silly. It is supposed to be silly. What would a film like this be if it took itself too seriously? It would be a failure. Matthew Vaughn knew…
Since I am going to be seeing Kick-Ass 2 tomorrow, it only makes since to re-watch Kick-Ass!
Kick-Ass is FUCKING AWESOME! It's just plain fun hardcore action.
Despite a lot of the negativity being said about Kick-Ass 2, BRING IT ON!
A character driven, memorable, unpredictable, zealous, action packed superhero film that hits all the right keys to making a self aware, stunning action flick. The leading roles are congenial and Mathew Vaughn's directing is unique and commendable. The narrative twist is fresh and the film is nicely paced to also mention. Can't wait for Kingsman!
Você não espera que seja tão bom
E ELE É MELHOR AINDA
I went into this with relatively low expectations, and came out completely surprised. Kick-Ass is pure unadulterated fun, mixing odd tonal shifts that range from gut-wrenching comedy to tearful tragedy.
Chloë Grace Moretz as the trained killer Hit-Girl is the sole reason to see this film. She is both cute and incredibly frightening, and while the extremity of her skill is unbelievable for someone so young, it makes it no less exhilarating.
Okay, you cunts, let's see what you can do now.
Entertaining, emotional, and violently fun. Matthew Vaughn puts together some exciting and brutal fight scenes, one in particular that involves night vision and a first person perspective.
I thought this movie is gonna sucked. Wow! I was surprised. Matthew Vaughn did a great job. Even Nick Cage is awesome as Big Daddy.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Having grown up, I find this film actually super disturbing. And yes, I am definitely talking about the fact that the youngest character is the one who does the most killing. I mean, at some point you get used to it but yeah.
A total riot of a movie as real life superheros become a reality.
Very violent and lots of swearing.
Not a Superhero movie for the family that's for sure
Balls to the Wall action. Loved every minute of it
Non-super, non-heroes. And funny. And too violent. But that's okay.
