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…
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.

- 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…
When Kick-ass became a smash hit a couple of years ago, it felt really fresh and new and original. In a lot of ways it still does. Putting it into the box of " fun ultraviolent superhero movie" seems to be selling it short, since it's actually pretty strong thematically and provides a hint of social commentary. The part of Kick-ass that resonates with me most strongly is the underdog theme. You're constantly fearing for these characters' lives because they are just a bunch of regular people with relatable motivations and they are just as scared as you would be in the same situation. These are people you want to cheer for because you'd want to be their friend in…
Perfect Nicolas Cage roles include: Adaptation., Grindhouse, and now Kick-Ass. Wonders never cease.
Despite the initial looks from the trailer and posters, this is no kids superhero movie. No, this is a full-blown R-rated action affair.
There are hints of Japanese anime influence here (seriously, Gunslinger Girls), some amusing referential humor, and a lot of touching family moments.
This feels primed for a sequel. And I will be there.
(Edit: Sequel happened, I WAS there. Good was done.)
This movie really wants you to think it's fun and clever, but it's neither of those things.
Nick Cage was a hoot
I really liked the film, it's nice to have people who wish to make the world better. The sad behind this, is que Those people are all jerks.
Unlike most of these humorous films, Kick-ass has a disturbing background, where a child is deprived of his childhood in search of the desired revenge. His father, decides to make it look closest of childhood, using disguises of superheroes.
On the other hand a geek teenager without many expectations to be cool, decides to be a superhero and fight crime and end up involved in something huge.
A film well produced, with some passages clearly inspired by other remarkable films.
I really enjoyed it.
with no power, comes no responsibility
I completely forgot how amazing this film is!!! Hyper violent and vulgar, the actions scenes are entertaining as hell and Chloe Grace Moretz is absolutely amazing as Hit Girl. It's R Rated sadism with a smile. 4.5/5.
I always end up rewatching this whenever it's in on TV and yeah, it's still fucking awesome.
spider man rip off but girl sexy
It's only taken me 4 years to get round to watching this. Big Daddy and Hit Girl steal the show.
Good script, great action and a suitable fitting soundtrack. Really enjoyed it!
