Kick-Ass actually qualifies as a character-driven movie and not a film dominated by its special effects.

[A] tedious, crudely plotted, soulless action film.
January 11, 2020
In the end this a great start to the big movie season and a fine first salvo of this year's comic property based movies line up.

Not only is it a tale of revenge, but it also sets up its masked vigilantes for more adventures like any good comic book story should.

For those of you curious and off kilter enough to give it a try, you will see beauty and warmth and optimism in it, mixed with a truth rarely shown at the multiplex these days.

It's a blast-a smart, refreshing, subversive spin on the super-hero genre.
June 6, 2019
Isn't always pretty, but it's a brazen, irreverent and wildly entertaining experience that distills the clichés and standards of the genre and turns them on their heads.

Fortunately, this is a film that isn't afraid to cross the line with its material, but does so in such a clever manner that it makes Kick-Ass one of the spring's more entertaining cinematic experiences.

... just another kind of superhero fantasy, but with more blood and expletives along the way.
November 5, 2018
A hilarious, hip twist on the superhero genre. Gone are the superpowers, the 100 inch chests and holier than thou attitude.

Kick-Ass asks what would happen if superheroes really DID operate in the real world, and the results are shocking, intriguing and entertaining all at once.

The plot doesn't add up to much, but doesn't have to, as this is a film defined by its high-energy, go-for-it-whatever, convention-toppling spirit.
August 6, 2018
A clever riff on the superhero genre, Kick-Ass teeters between teen comedy and blood-splattering action flick. You leave and wonder, What the heck?
September 11, 2017
f you're one of the many nerdy high school boys plagued with unpopularity and pimples, you'll adore the underdog story of Kick-Ass. But if you're one of the rest of us, you probably won't.

If you're not too put-off by lots of violence and profanity, and enjoy a good action-filled popcorn flick, then chances are you're going to love "Kick-Ass."

If you want to get serious, you could say that Kick-Ass is the movie that could finally drag comic-books into the credible mainstream. But being serious is to miss the point of Kick-Ass completely.

Where do I stand on Kick-Ass? On the fence, goggling with a mix of appalled fascination and guilty pleasure at the film's dark comedy and over-the-top violence.
