Kick-Ass ½

What a disappointment. I was so excited to see this in theaters, but left completely let down. I will never understand the need for hyper violence in movies. It's an atheistic and filmmaking choice that I just don't understand (and probably never will). I go to the movies to escape. While sometimes that escape can push you outside your comfort zone (leading to a great experience), I just don't see the appeal of such over-the-top violence. Obviously I am in the minority, but at least I've learned to stay clear of this style film.
