    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

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    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

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    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

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Kick-Ass has punk energy, ace action moves, and a winning sense of absurdist fun. show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    Kick-Ass - based on a graphic novel - thinks it's so brave and bold. But it's more like the title character, a dweeb who just thinks he's tough. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Its balancing act between innocence and gore perfectly matches the expectations of genre fans, who should embrace the movie. show more

    A brutally funny deconstruction, a hybrid of “Watchmen” and “Superbad” filtered through John Woo. It’s a boisterously original piece of entertainment . . . that isn’t for everyone. Note the rating, which should be triple-R, as in Really, Remarkably R. show more

    The best superhero movie since "The Dark Knight" (and far less serious in tone or approach), Kick-Ass earns its name in every way. show more

    Maybe I enjoyed the similarly themed Kick-Ass because it took me back to that innocent time. Or maybe it's because this is the most brazenly funny bloodbath unleashed on the public since "Pulp Fiction." 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!!!

    Youth comedy - kids will love it. Many adults will also be very amused and entertained. It will become a cult classic. A "must see" for the youth segment.

    At the outset of Kick-Ass we start with Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a very none-descript high school student, who has a couple of equally non-cool sidekicks. Their main interests other than girls, who are not interested in them, is comic books. One day Dave asks his friends why no one ever dresses up in a costume and fights crime for real.
