f you're one of the many nerdy high school boys plagued with unpopularity and pimples, you'll adore the underdog story of Kick-Ass. But if you're one of the rest of us, you probably won't.

This movie left me feeling warm and glowy inside, which is a pretty neat trick for a subversive, blood-soaked superhero action film.

If you're not too put-off by lots of violence and profanity, and enjoy a good action-filled popcorn flick, then chances are you're going to love "Kick-Ass."

If you want to get serious, you could say that Kick-Ass is the movie that could finally drag comic-books into the credible mainstream. But being serious is to miss the point of Kick-Ass completely.

Where do I stand on Kick-Ass? On the fence, goggling with a mix of appalled fascination and guilty pleasure at the film's dark comedy and over-the-top violence.

Kick-Ass gains significant momentum in its second half, once it abandons the arch origin-story material and starts staking a claim as a straight-up action flick.

Fast, funny, and a hell of a lot of fun, Vaughn's film does, indeed, live up to the brash punch of its title.

... It feels fresh, with an edge about it that allows you to think anything can happen to any character at any time.

Both its plot and inconsistent message seem little more than an excuse to show us a man explode inside an industrial-strength microwave.

Most of the lessons in Kick-Ass are juvenile, but Lordy are they stylishly told.

The movie just decided that thoughtlessness and splatter was its own reward. I'm okay with that.

Never has a title been so true, so funny, and so simple as that of Kick-Ass.

Kick-Ass is so refreshingly iconoclastic, it's a wonder it was made at all.

Kick-Ass is such an exciting, refreshing development in comic book filmmaking that I want to shout it from the rooftops

Kick Ass is about as exciting as movies get. Not just because it is a (mostly) anarchic splatter-fest that celebrates (nay, encourages) acts of ridiculous violence, but also the fact that it was made completely outside of the studio system.

A bait-and-switch movie that lucks out because its switch is so much more appealing than its bait.
