horrible movie, don't waste your time. Would have been a cool imaginative movie for kids to see but the language and sexual references are too much. I'm not sure who the target audience was but in my opinion they did not hit it.

Village Voice
Exciting and thoughtful, scraped free of the empty provocations of the wicked-pixie Hit-Girl scenes in Kick-Ass, I Declare War offers movie thrills—smartly plotted betrayals and escapes—as well as its share of disappointments. Full Review
Andrew Schenker
Slant Magazine
The film rarely takes us past its rather obvious conclusions about the potential bestial nature of kids and how that may translate to the larger battlefields. Full Review
Bill Goodykoontz
Arizona Republic
The directors (Lapeyre also wrote the film) have gathered a terrific bunch of young actors for the film, which plays at times like a “Lord of the Flies” knockoff but also has something original to say. Full Review

The problem, mainly, is that Lapeyre’s kids are stock types: runts, bullies, toadies, a girl with a big crush. In essence, they are kids’-movie tropes pretending to be war-movie tropes — one layer of generic material being used to cover another. Full Review

New York Daily News
There’s social commentary in all of this, but it takes a back seat to a surprisingly compelling narrative of the two combating teams. Full Review
