There are some voracious film watchers on Letterboxd with diverse tastes so I thought it would be interesting to see…
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.
To try and explain away Kick Ass as a super hero movie is being a tad too simplistic.
On the surface it reeks of "Dark Knight" comparisons- masked avenger(s) take to the streets to deal out death and justice to its slimy underbelly, with a good mix of revenge added for an extra flavoring. That's where the similarities end.
Batman was always at odds with himself for what he was doing, arguably feeling the need to become a symbol for right. The protagonists in Kick Ass have no such desires. Nic Cages "Big Daddy" may dress like Gothams winged avenger and sound like Adam West, but that's just a knowing wink-wink to make fanboys smile. There is no targeting a…
"- Alright, up you get. Two more rounds and then home.
- Look, only if we can go by the bowling alley on the way back.
- The bowling alley?
- Yeah, and ice cream after!
- [thinking about it for a second] Huh... okay. Two more rounds. No wincing... No whining! And you got yourself a deal, young lady.
- Yeah! I'm gonna get a hot fudge sundae!
- Good call, baby doll!
What can I say about 'Kick-Ass'? I had zero expectations about the film, I just knew there was a eleven year old that said "cunt" and "motherfucker", and after…
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.…
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…
Freaking awesome. Takes a different path from the comic, but that doesn't bother me at all. I don't really care too much about how accurately an adaptation follows it's source material, I only care that it's good. Comedic and epic at the same time.
Muy buena, Recomendada 100%.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
First off, I wish I knew about the scene with the guy and the microwave. I have a sort of phobia of microwaves so that scene was HORRIBLE and when I knew what was going to happen I had to fast forward through it. Ahh.
That aside, this was a great movie for the action-comedy genre. Clever writing, brilliant visuals, and fantastic acting. Nicolas Cage was awesome as his Adam West homage, but the real star of the film was Chloë Grace Moretz as Hit-Girl. That young actress is outstanding.
Hilarious and violent, but not without its emotional moments. Kick-Ass brings a new spin on the superhero genre while also providing plenty of laughs.
Kick-Ass is a 2010 action/comedy, based off of the comic series of the same name. It stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Nicolas Cage, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. It follows the story of Dave Lizewski, 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.
I love super hero movies, so I was excited for this film, years before I even saw it. I didn't see it until 2014, so 4 years after its initial release, but I had wanted to see it since 2010, just never got around to doing so. I don't think that it's the best super hero…
