Synopsis– A high school comic book nerd wonders why no one has ever tried to be a superhero. He decides to become a masked crusader, becomes famous online for beating up thugs on youtube, and finds that he’s way over his head, bumping into real vigilantes that are trying to take down a mob leader and getting involved in their war.
Forget funny, forget violent, forget gore and vulgar.
This movie is ALL OF THE ABOVE- but what really made it stand out was how touching it was. There were some extremely touching scenes in this movie, that where moving. I almost shed a tear once in the last 30 minutes.
The movie really keeps you on your toes with its amazing action and fantastic humor that never comes off as too juvenile.
Mark Strong was amazing as the villain mob leader, he did a great job of showing how crazy Kick-Ass was driving him.
Nicolas Cage was AMAZING. His performance along with Chloe Moretz’s made me almost shed tears at some points. The fight scenes were beautifully handled, some of the greatest fight scenes ever. The way they set up the fight scenes was awesome, the music and build up to every fight scene was spectacular to say the least.
Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) was amazing. She did not surprise me because i already read the script, in fact it was Big Daddy that surprised me. Chloe Moretz is going to freaking ROCK, expect to see her a lot from now on.
The only thing i did not like, is that Nic Cages character (Big Daddy) never really has any confrontation with Marc Strong’s character (DaMico) which is a shame because obviously they had some beef with each other.
It made me clap, laugh, and kept me awake. Wonderful movie and I hope hey make many more!
The great thing is that no one is really the star, everyone was phenomenal.
If you think this movie is inappropriate, youre fucking retarded. Movies are supposed to be inappropriate, bloody, wrong, bad and inhumane. Because we cant do that shit in the real world, movies are a place of escapism. Thats why theres ratings.
Emotion: Its 100% in the few emotional scenes.
Dialogue: 80% (somewhat juvenile, but genius)
Visual Effects: Bad graffics are used once purposely for humorous relief.
Critique score: 91%
Target Audience Score: 99%
