***
The movie has good action and some funny scenes, helped by Matthew Vaughn's undeniable flair and style, but Kick Ass fell flat for me at points. That being said, it's hugely enjoyable, with great performances from Nicolas Cage and the young Chloe Grace Moretz, as well as Mark Strong as the villain.

After the release of the beloved "Deadpool" many people believe that it was the first R rated comic book/graphic novel adaptation, a false statement. There have been many R rated films of said genre with the most notable and recent being Robert Rodriguez┤s "Sin City" and Matthew 'not Guy Ritchie' Vaughn "Kick Ass". While Rodriguez┤s film achieved critical success and a following since its release, "Kick-Ass" failed to be critical and commercial success when it came out but, as with many cult films, it earned a following on home video. Does this film deserves the following it has?
Dave Lizewski is a geeky high schooler who's tired of his mundane routine of being ignored at school, his almost nonexistent relationship with his father and being a constant victim of bullying. Bored with his life, Dave decides to follow the example of his comic books and become a real life superhero, but this na´ve attitude will lead Dave into trouble as the comic book world is not as violent and cruel as reality.
"Kick Ass" counts with solid acting with Nicholas Cage and ChloŰ Grace Moretz being the standouts, extremely juvenile comedy that at times is actually funny, the violence is well used as it is either used to surprise the audience or to get a laugh out of you (as a good exploitation film it doesn't overstays it welcome and it doesn't go to eye rolling level), Vaughn┤s direction is on point as he manages to achieve a perfect balance in this exploitative film, a story that┤s ridiculous but is amusing to watch, a solid score, a right amount of references (sure, at times it goes it is excessive referencing but it mostly it works), a well written script that has a handful of surprises, and it perfectly mocks the superhero mania of the MCU (using Raimi┤s "Spider Man" as the basis).
"Kick-Ass" is a well-made mixture of satire, superhero and exploitation. It is funny, at times hilarious, memorable, it doesn't overstays its welcome and it knows exactly what it is as it doesn't try to be smarter than it is. Undeniably Matthew Vaughn┤s greatest film and a most see for every fan of the superhero genre.

Le scene d'azione sono molto divertenti e sopra le righe anche se non mi hanno del tutto convinto: avrei preferito pi¨ piani sequenza e meno tagli di montaggio, ma presumo che questi siano gusti personali. Per il resto il film risulta essere molto originale anche se con queste premesse il risultato finale poteva essere molto pi¨ convincente.

A Lot of funny moments and amazing stunt performances.
It's a cool example of how enjoyable people would feel about the movie.
It did have nicolas cage in the movie but wasn't bad in this one.
I Think Chloe Grace Mortez was a brilliant masterpiece.

Grade: A

Kick-Ass took comic book movies to a whole new level, and it also took superhero movies to a whole new level. This is a real superhero movie, it's very funny, it's action-packed, the characters are well developed, and the dramatic scenes work very well. Kick-Ass is one of my favorite movies.

The idea is good, the story is not good at all, could've been way better, and there are only a few laugh-worthy scenes. Many people might like this movie for what it is, but for me it was another boring, forced comedy movie.

Marketed as a comedy and does have funny moments, but also bounces around between dark, violent and sad.

Before "Deadpool," this unconventional teen movie shook the superhero genre with its excessive violence and vulgarity.

There are a few times that I will watch a movie and hear a song during an awesome scene and run right to iTunes to buy it. This happened for three songs in this movie. The Prodigy, Gnarls Barkley, and Joan Jett. CRAZY. The acting is good. The stylized violence is top-notch. The Characters are good. The film is good.

An unexpectedly nice movie. The movie released hell in its second half, leaving everybody stunned by its plot twist and unrealistic great action scene.
