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.…
I want 12 year old cgm to kill me
that scene where she bursts into the live stream and kills everyone with the strobe going on
what a scene
""Show's over, motherfuckers."
A film focus on being more like a spoof but at the same time an homage to the superhero movies,turns out to be better than the majority of them.There is a big madness,an energetic feeling in Matthew Vaughn's direction,a big heart,love and passion for this creation,combined with an inventive script.You have all the best ingredients.
The entire cast does a great job,but allow me to honor with special mentions:Nicolas Cage with his best role and probably performance the last 10 years,Chloe Grace Moretz who steals the show every time she shows up as Hit-Girl,and Mark Strong giving the best and most enjoyable performance I have seen from him.
As I mentioned before Kick-Ass is a highly successful spoof,but at the same time an even more highly successful homage to the superhero movies.Crazy,incredibly directed,fresh and inventive.Is that anything else you want from a superhero movie??
What defines a masterpiece? For some, a Masterpiece is something like "Citizen Kane", or "The Godfather", or any of those types of movies. But if you ask me what defines a masterpiece, I'd answer with movies like "Pulp Fiction", "American Beauty", "Moonrise Kingdom", and of all things, "Kick-Ass".
So, why do I consider this movie a masterpiece? Well, its simple. It has everything a masterpiece needs; Nic Cage as a Batman Knock Off; A Teen in a stupid outfit getting his ass handed to him by some street thugs; A scene where a guy explodes in a nuclear microwave; scenes of guys getting shot by a little girl in a hallway; A FUCKING JETPACK WITH MINI GUNS ON IT!!!! What…
Immer wieder ein geniaker Film.
Witzig von Anfang bis Ende. Alle Charaktere passen gut hinein. Kick-Ass ist einfach eine der Besten Superheldverfilmungen und nehr gibt dazu nicht zu sagen. Guckt ihn euch an.
Surpreendentemente excelente. Não tinha assistido ainda por esperar algo bobo ou sem graça. E muito pelo contrário. Matthew Vaughn fez um filme sensacional. Dinâmico, original e (claro) engraçado. Os personagens são ótimos também. Gostei muito da Hit-Girl e principalmente do Red Mist (o mais cômico). Vaughn também mostra ótimo conjunto técnico.
On Episode 61, the Super Action Bros watch Kick-Ass and learn that with no power comes ultraviolence and male power fantasies.
Még mindig baromi szórakoztató film.
Azért az vicces, hogy folyamatosan a Myspace-t emlegetik benne. Rohanva változó korban élünk.
Kick-Ass Movie Review
Matthew Vaughn has got this style down to a science. Kick-Ass stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Nicolas Cage, Chloë Grace-Moretz, and Mark Strong. The film follows an unnoticed high school geek who decides to become a superhero despite having no powers or training.
Kick-Ass is an over the top, action packed, hilarious original superhero flick. The action is bloody and brutal, and of course beautiful to look at thanks to Vaughn's skill behind the camera. It's two hours of non-stop fun and entertainment.
The performances are all awesome in this film. Nic Cage is at his best with Big Daddy and him and Chloë Grace-Moretz have great chemistry. Aaron Taylor-Johnson is funny and totally believable in his role. All…
