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.
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…
Fun, insane, crazy, off-beat, offensive, and yes, kick ass. I had some trepidation going in, especially with my lukewarm reaction to Kingsman: The Secret Service, but I shouldn't have worried. All the faults that Matthew Vaughn brought to his most recent film (the obnoxious clusterfuck of tones, stop and start pacing, meta meta meta) are minimized here to great effect. Aaron Taylor Johnson is fantastic, and honestly, I can't believe I'm saying that. No wonder he's been in EVERYTHING since this; he has potential and he showcases his skills with relative ease. However, It's Hit-Girl's show, and man oh man, Chloe Moretz is utterly amazing in Kick-Ass. I think it was the moment when she cut someone's leg off that…
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…
Still feels fresh. Laugh out loud funny, sends up the genre perfectly, and Cage is excellent.
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!
UNA LECCIÓN SOBRE CAPITALISMO.
A Matthew Vaghn se le puede acusar de ser un frívolo, de ser un laissez faire o de ser un inconsciente, pero no de dar puntada sin hilo. Si el cómic original de Mark Millar (cuya sola mención a mí ya me hace vomitar la placenta por ser el estandarte de la generación de gente que llama 'novela gráfica' al 'cómic') y John Romita, jr. parecía emerger como una clara llamada sibilina a todos los freaks que han visto demasiadas veces 'Superman' y han leído la 'Liga de la Justicia' hasta altas horas de la madrugada, 'Kick-Ass' es el perfecto reclamo para esa gente. Planteada desde una óptica de trama trasunta al Quijote: un muchacho que…
Definitely one of the better movies Nick Cage has been in.
Forget the second part!
A fun, r-rated superhero movie
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
THIS WAS FREAKING AWESOME!!!
A pesar de que mi criterio haya cambiado un poco no quiere decir que películas de las que antes disfrutaba no me gusten, todo lo contrario, Kick-Ass la sigo amando y se encuentra entre una de mis favoritas.
I love the first half of this movie with all the politically incorrect and its really violent. The first tries to show what would happen if someone tries to be a superhero in real life. In the 3rd act the movie turns into another superhero movie were the improbable happens. The 3rd act is everything it was going against at the beginning of the movie.
Hit Girl is one of the best child acting since The Professional.
I think Zack Snyder really dropped the ball on not casting Nicholas Cage as Batman. He based his preformance on Adam West's Batman which is fantastic.That warehouse scene is just epic. Everyone always says that's totally batman except without the killing......well, they can't really say that anymore, what with BvS, that's a whole different review (Segway) Back to this movie, this is a funny, action packed meta take on a superhero movie while the main villain is kind of bland, he does have his moments (when he's asking for a mixed Icee while you hear a man getting killed) and some plot points are rushed like the love interest and Big Daddy's origin.....I still just love this movie. Oh! also when are we getting a Hit Girl spinoff?
Stylish, hilarious and extremely violent. Love it.
I really do love Batman v Superman
I'll probably expand this list eventually
