Bloody & Ultra Violent & Not Too Funny At All. It Was A Little Disconcerting. Definitely Not For The Kiddies To Watch. Not At All.

Kick-ass is nothing more than just another kind of superhero fantasy, but with more blood and expletives along the way. The plot isn't that good but it doesn't have to be, because you are watching a very funny and enteraining movie. I really thinks that it got the vibes of a classic Tarantino movie combined with drama and laughter of Forrest Gump. The fight sequences are just brilliant and gory at the same time. I would recommend this movie but only if you like a movie where blood,violence and humour are the main subjects.

Kick-ass is such a relatable character, with all those people wanting to be superheroes. And how quickly they change their minds.

A fun time and a nice spin on the superhero genre. It's funny, action-packed, and cute, but only to be let down by some over-the-top crude humor. The story starts off really strong but does actually get bizarre toward the end. The fighting was fun and well-done, having bloody action scenes really made the screen hard to take your eyes off of. All the characters are good, both heroes and villains, main and sides. They really brought out the movie and put heart and energy into the roles. The comedy was good, I smiled at the gags and goofs that occurred. But there were some sexual jokes I didn't care for. This is definitely a joy to watch with friends, with all the jokes and violence an all.

If you are getting tired of all the end of the world stories in superhero movies, then go and watch and rewatch Kick-Ass

Knowing exactly when to be hilarious, when to be intense, and when to be emotional Kick Ass is that rare parody film that treds a lot of waters but yet succeeds in every aspect.

The movie lived up to the hype. All the ass-kicking I had hoped for and then some. Funny, crude, ultra-violent, and creative. Loved it. Hit Girl reminded me of a young Natalie Portman in The Professional (Leon). Nic Cage came off as lovable for a change, perhaps because he was channeling his inner Raising Arizona days. It was a great premise that delivered. Looking forward to future sequels.

Rating: A-

This movie is good if you like super hero movies, and like dumb action. Which means it doesn't have a super deep plot or characters. Its just a fun movie if you like super hero movies.

Good representation of the comics and what would be to be a a hero in real life and it has entertaining action scenes.
Overall a good movie with good pacing.

This is an insult to every superhero movie.

While not perfect it is surprising and fresh in many ways as Kill Bill stories go; Moretz shines and Nicolas Cage is pitch perfect

I knew this would be great because Ebert hated it. Ebert is the most overrated couch potato of all time -- he gave a thumbs up to Transformers thereby proving he knows nothing at all about cinema and he said video games aren't art thereby proving he doesn't know anything about art.

This film will never appeal to males who watch superhero movies just to gain vicarious pleasure from fantasizing that they are muscular men with great power. The main character, Kick-Ass, is a skinny nerd with no super powers or even martial arts training, and he gets upstaged by a little girl. He also gets stabbed in the gut and run over by a car while trying to be a costumed hero.

This is a satirical superhero story that really draws its inspiration from the ridiculous idea that someone could be a costume-wearing vigilante without any actual super powers and from the preposterous idea that Batman would bring a child (Robin) into the deadly and dangerous world of vigilantism. While Chris Nolan took the idea of a man with no super powers in a silly costume playing vigilante and made some deadly serious, utterly humorless movies out of that idea, this movie plays up the sheer absurdity of it all and revels in not taking it all seriously.

To turn this stylish and entertaining but ultimately flat bloodbath into a philosophical soapbox for ruminations about pornographic profane gore in cinema and the children‚"my god, won't someone think of the children!?‚"is to have missed the point of the parody. Much like TMNT some 20 years prior, K-A aims to KO the burgeoning superhero genre, especially its Nolan-inspired aspirations toward gritty realism, by exposing the underlying violence all such comic tales reply. While many of the punches don't quite land with the intended force, they still hit their ridiculous target square in the all-too-square jaw.

Amazingly fun pseudo super hero flick that takes on the tired genre with gusto. Hit Girl is it.

Funny & bloody! Perfect. Best superhero comedy.

This action-filled movie is super, special awesome. I enjoyed the scene with Nicholas Cage & Chloe Grace Mortez. This film is also the reason why Hit-Girl is my favorite female superhero of all time.

Kick Ass came out of nowhere and stunned the critics as well as the public alike. It is probably as anti-superhero as one can get and it is visceral- which is something you do not see in risk averse big budget superhero films. Nicholas Cage is a worthy guru to Aaron Taylor and his sidekick- the ass kicking Chloe Moretz. Do not go in with any expectation and you will be pleasantly surprised. A special mention to the cinematography and fights department who really shine through. (You want an original superhero film- you got one here).
