I found it mighty painful sitting through all the bone crushing and blood-letting.

As long as Kick-Ass remains focused on Dave and his exploits in and out of costume, it remains a clever modern riff on the classic Marvel tale, like watching Peter Parker's travails reimagined for Napoleon Dynamite. But this is only half the movie.

Kick-Ass is only half right.

The movie gives us good reason to ask why we've become so accustomed to adults behaving like invulnerable comic-book characters in pretty much every action movie, even those with serious pretensions.

Matthew Vaughn and company turn the super hero image on its ear, reinventing the genre.

The select audience it is aimed for will thoroughly enjoy it while the rest of us will suffer through it.

The best comic book screen adaptation since The Dark Knight!

It isn't terribly good, nor terribly fun, nor terribly anything - not even terribly violent, though you've probably heard otherwise from an assortment of moral scolds.

Certainly entertaining enough as an action film and it works well enough as a love story, but there are some serious problems with the dramatic portions of the film and its warped moral message.

However the film also has major pacing issues, is pretty damned boring and saddles the audience with the least interesting character in the entire film, Kick-Ass. As a result I felt the film was simply o.k. when it could have been much, much better.

Comic scribe Mark Millar and director Matthew Vaughn's pitch-black love letter to the genre, Wertham's greatest fear is fully realized in an irresponsible blitzkrieg of irony-tinged fun.

This film delivers on that fantasy with a world where bad guys are real and superheroes are geeky high school comic-book fans.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

The funniest, tongue-in-cheekiest, most outrageous version of a superhero ever.

I know it's all supposed to be tongue in cheek and lots of fun, but frankly this turned my stomach.

When filmmakers nudge a child into viewing savagery as slapstick, are we not allowing them to do what we condemn in the pornographer -- that is, to coarsen and inflame?

Kick-Ass is ultra-funny, ultra-silly and ultra-geeky, but what Kick-Ass mostly is, is monumentally cool - this is the film the kids will be swearing about.

Smart, fast-moving, and deadly, this flick makes all the right moves as an adult tale of revenge sparked with black humor that is a hair-trigger removed from tragedy

'Kick-Ass' OWNS.

April 18, 2010
With an overload of characters and contrasts and disconnects, Kick-Ass tears itself apart. And that leaves its ultra violence untenable.

...there's little doubt that Moretz ultimately stands as the film's most valuable asset...
