(Sorry about the huge tittle lol)
WOW! The hype for Kick-Ass just keeps getting BIGGER. And I am actually shocked at the last quote at the very bottom (like, it was creepy to a sick level… thats how positive it was)
Obsessed with film said :
I’m quite confident in saying this is up there with the best comic films I’ve ever seen (Spiderman 2, Dark Knight), and probably one of the best films i’ve seen all year.
“DK Mode” went to an Arclight screening, and this is how he starts off his email to Ain’t It Cool:
I have seen a lot of screenings, but I’ve never felt compelled to write in with any reviews. Until now. This is by far the best comic book movie I have ever seen… I couldn’t find any flaws in “Kick-Ass.” It was a nearly perfect script, filled with out 8 to 11 ‘Oh Shit’ moments and lines that made people clap and freak out.
Here’s a similar take from Slashfilm reader “Ranjit R”:
If it’s not a commercial success for whatever reason this is guaranteed cult classic status, period. I can not rave about this movie enough and await the final cut in April.
And another review from “IG”:
Avoiding spoilers I worry it just sounds like ranting and raving summing up to “THAT WAS AWESOME…” but what can I say? That’s where my head is at, all over the place cause my mind got blown…
I’m sure you’ll be getting lots of emails on the subject as Lionsgate is cranking out Screenings like gang busters but I just came from one and hot damn, what a flick. I never read the comic but this movie was a great fun incredibly violent ride.
And this is from AH: (THIS IS THE CRAZY QUOTE AT THE BOTTOM, its so weird!)
Jesus. This movie completely lives up to it’s name. It’s wraps up insane levels of ridiculousness and realism into a really fun package that you can’t help but enjoy. By the end of the movie the whole crowd, including myself, were cheering, whooping and hollering.
AH actually went on to say that they where INFATUATED by Hit-Girl!!!!! (shes 10 years old!!!!)
BTW Infatuated means sexually attracted to. And, to a 10 year old. Maybe thats how badass she was in this movie.
