but the costumes are not so pretty
There are simply too few superhelden movies in which the characters are really teenagers or at least closer to the people who read the comics.
I have always wanted a comic book movie in which a few children in it happen but I did not expect and I am grateful. If I had expected something that had happened in this movie I just had so much fun I was quite surprised to see that this film is also based on a comic book but why not there are books about books. Or books about burning books. However, I can barely expect the second part actually found this movie is just okay but I hope the second part will kick ass
This film will never appeal to males who want to see muscular men with superpowers so they can vicariously imagine themselves to be muscular men with great power. The main character, Kick-Ass, is a skinny nerd with no super powers or even martial arts training, and he gets upstaged by a little girl. He also gets stabbed in the gut and run over by a car whilst trying to be a costumed hero.
This movie was a satirical superhero story that really draws its inspiration from the ridiculous idea that Batman would bring a child (Robin) into the deadly, dangerous world of vigilantism, as well as the ridiculousness of being a costumed vigilante without any super powers. While Chris Nolan took the idea of a non-super-powered man in a silly costume playing vigilante and made some deadly-serious, utterly humorless movies out of that idea, this movie plays up the sheer absurdity of it all and revels in not taking it all seriously.
This movie had drama, humor, some great action sequences, and a great performance by Chloe Moretz.
The high school life of Dave felt very authentic, and I liked how they established his humble beginnings instead of the cliche of a traditional superhero origin. The simplistic reasons he decides to be a hero made me laugh, and I like that things got ugly fast (as they would in real life.) But Kick-Ass really lit up and became something special when Nicolas Cage and ChloŽ Grace Moretz appeared on screen. The two of them are truly awesome characters that elevate this film into the stratosphere.
I adored the action scenes in this film (even with the extreme bloody violence.) There are at least three different fights in this film that had me grinning like a fool, because I was having so much fun watching. However, nothing tops that climactic battle. The blend of music, stunts, a little bit of slow-motion, and a whole lot of blood was genius. It had some unexpected moments and a few bombastic sequences that made me want to stand up and cheer. Kick-Ass is a huge adrenaline rush of elation for me, and I can't wait to watch it again.
