Don't expect a superhero flick here - this is one of those gross overbloody horror movies done with a superhero theme. Aside from the gore it was ok.
very funny but highly violent 4 star brilliant
So not what I was expecting. Very violent in an almost comical sort of way (highly stylised). A bit disturbing but really quite entertaining in a twisted kind of way. Something different and a good watch in my opinion.
Not what I was expecting, but turned out to be a brilliant movie.
Terrific movie,well done by all ,Chloe Moretz is a STAR.Funny and great action.
Wannabe superhero gets the backing of a real deal father and his daughter team. Other than having a young cute teenage girl as a deadly killing machine there is nothing here that sets it apart from a lot of this type of thing.
Pleasantly suprised. Well worth a watch. Actually quite an entertain plot. However not to be watched with kids and a bit Gorey.
Film about what a super-hero is not! Great stuff and surprising, leave your? brain in neutral
Not what I expected. If you not up for a movie that is complex then you'll enjoy this one, it's light (in terms of not alot of thinking), funny and entertaining. After a stressful day, this is a good movie to watch and kick back.
Ok... firstly- this is NOT a family movie. At all.
This is a pull no punches violent, innuendo and generally inappropriateness-filled film. Although shocking at first, and disturbing throughout, the film is produced brilliantly. One of the things I found most interesting about it is that the brutality and irresponsibility exhibited by the characters does not go without consequence- something that seems to be lacking in lots of films these days.
Very dark but very well done- just be aware of what you're in for.
Very funny and very disturbing. What Griff the Invisible could have been.
Absolutely disgusting language, ridiculously bad movie I cannot believe it even made it to DVD. I lasted about 18 minutes and was just disgusted and how bad it was and the language was unnecessary.
Probably aimed at 16-24 brainless males but I would hope even they wouldnt find this entertaining
It doesnt deserve one star
was not at all what i expected but a good watch overall
A very surprising addition to the superhero genre. Kick-Ass is highly inventive and original movie. For fans of the genre, this one is definitely worth checking out.
Mixed feelings about this one. Sure to end up a cult classic amongst brooding teenagers it had some great bits and some average bits. Be warned though that coarse language and high level violence are rife so definitely not for kids.
Very niche movie but very entertaining!
If you like comics and ultra violence this movie is for you
Very boring movie. I tried to watch it to the end... waiting for something meaningful to happen. It just sort of plodded on. Characters were dull. No humour. Give it a miss
I really enjoyed this movie. Lots of action, violence and blood. Just like it was promised...and that's why it has an MA15 rating. It is NOT a light entertainment movie for the kids.
Nothing like what I thought it'd be, which actually turned out to be a good thing!!! Very real to life super hero flick, not missing out on the actual risk, death, blood, and repercussions...! I recommend definitely...!
This was not my idea of a family movie. There was a lot of very coarse language. Maybe one for the older teens but not for younger ones.
Bit slow to start --- but stay with it, it gets better and is well worth the watch.
Very entertaining! Let's be honest, cute little kids swearing can be very hilarious. Aside from that, it's quirky and awesome!
The best super hero movie ever. A different take on the standard super hero crap. Great action and story line. Funny but serious as well
This movie has a touch of 'Juno' about it. Real teenagers with real lives, including dead mothers and uncool friends, who also have real values and the guts to do something 'bigger' than themselves. I loved it.
Original, interesting, funny. Certainly worth a look...and then maybe another look!!
Awesome movie. Good adaptation of a great comic.
Definitely for comic book fans.
Hilarious... I'm in love with the purle wig!
not as interesting as the ads suggested. the main star is more cringeworthy than anything else. Nicolas Cage is wasted in this movie.
Older children selected this one and I started to watch..whilst I am not a big fan of 'gore' this movie is amazing, Hit Girl is disturbingly great, her dad, Nicholas Cage, fantastic part, and Kick-Ass ..so funny on many levels. I enjoyed this more than the kids did surprisningly enough! great comic book on screeen action!
Some great laughs - separated by boring bits.
Great movie we really enjoyed it, humour (dark) , top acting fast story line my favourite movie of the year.
Firstly what a bizarre movie.
But an original movie and a enjoyable movie-very violent no holds barred on the violence front.
Nicolas cage plays an awesome role.
Should have been disturbing, that little girl going around commiting mass killings, but it was kind've Kill Bill'ish. Certainly very entertaining and a little different.
This was a really fun movie and the kids loved it too. Unexpectedly enjoyable.
Dark but good. The little chick really kicked ass
A unique action movie with a decent storyline. Lots of guns, knives and blood. It is a must see for all action movie fans
Very entertaining! The whole movie is like a video game. The human actors are like video characters from a game. It is far-fetched, violent in some places, but a lot of fun. Whoever made the movie is obviously young and a fan of video games.
I would watch this one again. Totally NOT what I expected, very happily surprised. Great entertainment. Hit Girl ROCKS!! lol
Loved the script, and the soundtracks. The references throughout the movie were funny - just didn't like the violance. However, still worth seeing!
Some scenes are horrifying!
Twist after twist after twist... and yes, it is fun.
Not going to pretend like it is a masterpiece, but it is certainly very different, unexpected and entertaining.
Gory but good!
If you don't want to see a little girl act like Uma outta kill bill, don't watch this! If you do, start drooling, this movie ticks all the boxes, geek turned superhero, little girl hitman, and floppy haired friends making witty remarks!
FUNNY, but ruined by way too much swearing in my opinion. And why is Hollywood starting to put masturbation sceens in movies??? I can't figure out wheather they think it's funny or erotic, I find it gross.
Opening shot essentially sums up the movie. It is brilliant. Completely unexpected to be this fantastic, and to surprise the audience this much! It's true that is rather violent.. and some rather course language... but absolutely fantastic film. Never seen a film that entertains me this much!
Great film - with reservations. This movie is well-crafted, funny and exceptionally violent. It's quite disturbing on so many levels, but enormously entertaining as well. Hit-girl makes The Professional look like an amateur. Recommended for comic book fans.
Really enjoyed this - well acted, colourful and action packed.
Also violent so definately not for kids - hearing an 11-year old girl say the F and C words was a shock at first and it just gets better from there!
Good film. Fun. Action packed. Great story. Really well done!
Ok movie...lots of randomness...not really cool with an 10 year old cursing though and very gorey.
This movie got better as it went along. Pretty good
A little bit dissapointing considering the hype. But overall a decent movie worth checking out just once.
Excellent watched it again n again!!!!!!!
A tongue and cheek look into the world of movies based on comic books..Very funny and entertaining. One of the best movies of the year.
(warning*explicit language) and not for kids.
One of the best movies in recent years, Kick-Ass is AWESOME. From the main characters ineptness to the mob boss's (Mark Strong) paranoia and rage this is movie that will not disappoint great fun but NOT FOR KIDS (although the MA rating makes that pretty obvious) and funny too.
This movie is what all young people would (wet)-dream about!
Being a superhero and then get the girl in the end.... however, this is not your average 'dream'-movie! it turns a lot nastier - and funnier then the main character could have ever imagined... this movie is aimed at the teen-audience, so the language and actions are not for the faint-hearted. get over that and you will enjoy the show! (and secretly wished it happened to you!
This movie was a fizzer - very little laughs. Way over the top with the violence in parts.
4 1/2 stars, best movie ive seen in 2010 so far. i didnt know what to expect but i liked it from the start and loved it by the end. lots of violent suprises. hit girl was the biggest surprise. i liked all the other characters too, even the bad guys were great.
Different story and done well. Had its slow moments but also plenty of great scenes, even if rather voilent! The scene stealer was definitely Hit Girl. The young actress played the role fantastically and her character is definitely what makes the movie so much more interesting.
This is the most funniest and weird movie ever I watched it twice It does however border on being abit strange having a child so young as main actress being soo violent
I found that this had a few gaps to start, that there were moments of interest interspersed among moments of tedium, but the second half of the film lifts and it is really enjoyable. Original and lots of fun. If you don't like to hear 11 year old girls swearing, steer clear, but I found her character fantastic. A great choice of role by Nic Cage for a change too.
I enjoyed Kick Ass. I'm just a little wary of saying I loved it. I can't quite gush over the depiction of a 12 year old slicing and dicing her victims. I know it's all comic book and nerdy geek fantasy but it just doesn't sit right. Having said that Chloe Moretz and Nicolas Cage are amazing in this film. They are the reason to tune in.
It started out slow, but it got so much better. Really enjoyed this movie. It surprised us.
the only bad review was someone who didn't know what they were watching and got a movie that was full of profanity and gore which they didn't expect. the movie did have a little comedy but more action than anything. great movie and be prepared to experience "dark" humour.
Really Cool Movie!! I dont usaully like action/super hero movies! - But i was highly entertianed. Nicholas Cge plays a different character which is great to watch. A totally different spin on super hero movies. It starts off a bit slow but hang in there
An entertaining hero movie with some great gorey action scenes, love Hit Girl.
I liked the story idea of this movie... but it was nothing like I expected. It wasn't exactly funny and was way more gorey than I expected. But the nerd rising up to be a hero in a wetsuit was a fun idea... so not a complete waste :)
Suprisingly entertaining - funny and action packed - not an academy award winning movie, but we enjoyed it - Nicolas Cage plays a different role and plays it well - worth a watch for a laugh and some good action with heaps of gore !!
This is such an underrated film! This movie is just about having some fun and it’s such a great comedy. CHECK IT OUT!!!!
