Recently I was contemplating making a list of my favorite scenes in film, but I decided that instead of just…
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…
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!
How come no ones ever tried to be a super hero?
If anyone tried to do it they'd get their ass kicked.
What can I possibly say about Kick-Ass that people and critics haven't already said? What can I say that the film hasn't already shown in very graphic detail? Despite it being a raunchy, violent, in your face film with a unique attitude, there actually isn't a whole lot to say other than its balls to the wall crazy.
And its a shit ton of fun.
Peter Parker was a dorky kid with a heart of gold. Batman was a hardened man fighting for the lost lives of his parents who were gunned down by mindless criminal activity personified.…
500 DIFFERENT FILMS IN 2016
Such a violent and darkly comedic comic book film. Matthew Vauhn crafted a super solid adaptation of the Mark Millar and John Romita Jr comic, yes some things are changed but I think they all work to make a better movie. Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Dave Lizewski/Kick-Ass is good but far from his namesake, he is the most wimpy character in the movie. The true heart and soul of the movie is Hit-Girl and Big Daddy played by Nic Cage and Chloë Grace Moretz. They are such awesome characters that are insane but have the sweetest relationship and all the action scenes that involve them are the best. Another stand out is Mark…
My love for Kick-Ass is infinite, both the comics and the movies.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
why'd they have to do nic cage so dirty
A surprisingly entertaining action film from director Matthew Vaughn.
Mais uma adaptação dos quadrinhos que deu certo! O filme, assim como os quadrinhos, parece uma grande homenagem as histórias de super heróis! É bem divertido e merece destaque entre tanta coisa ruim lançada em 2010 nos cinemas!
oh god I still love it
