  • The movie belongs to Moretz, whose sensational performance will be talked about for years. Her scenes with Cage, who wears a Batsuit and uses a voice borrowed from Adam West, are a hoot. show more

  • It brings together several popular strains of contemporary moviemaking and combines them into one big, shameless, audacious, compulsively watchable, irresistibly likable piece of pure entertainment. show more

  • Grungily stylish and often funny, at least for a while, though all of the caveats and contradictions that apply to Tarantino films apply here: One man's--or boy's--stylization is another's profane, unrelenting and tedious brutality. show more

    In the theater I was originally taken aback at the foul-mouth of the young character called Hit Girl, ************ the entire story sort of smoothed things over, escpecially when I learned of her background and upbringing. After that, I absolutely fell in love with the movie and ALL of it's characters. This has to be one of the best action pictures of all time. I think is was kind of a sleeper in the theaters, but it has taken off incredibly since the video was released. Do a search for Kick-Ass on You-Tube and you'll be amazed at what you find. The movie exhibits great acting, phenomenal f/x, and an awsome musical score that really accents the storyline. One of the final sequence scores is entitled "Flying Home" and is easily the new millineum "Rocky" theme to me. Be a kid again...RENT THE VIDEO. ENJOY!!!
