Not your normal super-hero movie. But it's a good one. Every scene that Chloe Moretz is in is killer, she's a really good actress. The fight scenes are of the Matrix/Crouching Tiger type and are great. It does drag in places. Christopher Mintz-Plasse looked like he was sleepwalking through the film, waiting for the next Apatow phone call. Nicolas Cage, even though he basically played himself, he was good. I like Cage when he doesn't have to carry a film. Overall, a good action film, I could've done with more Hit-Girl and Big Daddy and less Kick-Ass, but it was entertaining and it wasn't like your typical super hero film.

The only parts of this movie I actually enjoyed watching were the scenes with ChloŽ Grace Moretz and Nicolas Cage. The rest of the characters were pretty forgettable.

A comic-book movie that is pure awesomeness.

"Kick-Ass" by Amanda

Yes I read the graphic novel. Why are they making a sequel to this flick centered around Hit-Girl? Well ...that was all that was enjoyable about this typical, standard, predictable, flashy, super-hero saturated, pop-corn-choking flick. Seeing the trailer and calling it a day is cheaper, saves you time, and shows off the funniest moments in the flick as well as the best Hit-Girl beat-em-up sequences.

Nicholas Cage thinks he's Batman and raises his daughter, Hit-Girl, as the ultimate assassin. Nerdy kids with no life and no martial arts experience take to the streets in spandex and get completely destroyed by criminals. Then there is a crazy action explosion yet predictable plot twist. It involves a Lex Luthor-like villain, betrayal...all emobodied in a nerdy teen's quest for the hottes...

Moretz is this film!

Wayyy better then i thought it would be and boyyy i am so lovin Chloe Moretz right now! I have seen a lot of children actors or teens if you will come and go but none as near fantastic as Chloe is! Putiing it mildly thisfilm wouldve probably straight up sucked if it wasnt for her contribution to the film! Dork boy Dave tells his buddy why aren't there any real superheroes?? After putting that into persepective he shops online and buys (the most ridiculous looking scuba suit i have ever seen) his outfit and bang! He has become the watcher of the streets 'Kickass' Before you know it he has become an internet sensation as someone films the first time he attempts to break up 3 toughs trying to beat up 1 guy, and they drop it on Youtube. This brings to attention yet another real to life cri...

"Kick-Ass" by Yojimbo

When teenage geek Dave Lizewski decides to become a superhero even though he has no powers whatsoever he becomes an overnight internet celebrity, not reckoning on meeting a couple of real vigilantes in the form of a vengeance obsessed ex-cop and his daughter. In the real world, what kind of people would want to don tights and become crime fighters? It would probably be a combination of inept, comic obsessed nerds and violent psychopaths, and so it is in Kick Ass. The film is a kind of homage to comic book heroes. Or a grittily dark high octane action film. But neither. And both! It's a bit hard to describe because it's quite shizophrenic in nature; one minute teenage nerd comedy as it concentrates on the character of Dave, the next a kick ass action movie when Hitgirl and Big Daddy crash ...

I was disappointed Bruce didn't show up in Drag Me to Hell, but the trivia said he was working on Burn Notice and couldn't make the cameo...

But anyway, I still like the Adam West-esque line reading by Cage. He's bad, but in good way. But hey *SPOILER ALERT*

.....

At least you get to see Cage burn instead of Campbell, right?

Bruce Campbell? Did someone ring? Holy Crap the movie would have been much better if he was in it instead of that bankrupt guy with the bad hair pieces.

I thought the film was pretty good, but it took a steep drop in the second weekend. 

I still think Hit-Girl made the film - we'll see if box office + DVD sales add up to a sequel or not.

And I'm torn on the interesting concept of having Bruce Campbell instead of Cage... I can see it working, but after watching Cage, he was pretty good for the role (and we all know he's a comic geek).
